We just got back from a trip out to Ohio to visit Travis' family. We had such a great time being there and just hanging out. During our visit we were also able to spend time with some of our best friends the Mayne family and the Nunez family... and we got to meet the new additions to their families.

Hudson did great on the airplane and didn't even cry during any of the flights!
He got to meet his Aunt Amy for the first time!
He rode on a lawn mower with dad (definitely something he wouldn't experience here in San Clemente).

Dressed and ready for his first day at the pool. We met up with Hillary, Savannah, Natalie, and Annabelle! Hudson really didn't care much for the cold water.

Hudson and little Savannah in their pj's ready for bed.

We went to the zoo... below you can see Travis was trying to look as "tourist-y" as possible.

Travis and Allan have been friends since high school and they were in the "oh so famous" band RidgeRoad. We still hear about fans of RidgeRoad back in Ohio. They have been friends through so much and now they are dads together. It works out nicely that I really LOVE Hillary too! We always enjoy our time with them.

Grandma and Hudson:

The Collins Fam (minus Chad and Brandon.. oh and Gunner)

We also went to downtown Cincinnati to Findlay Market for some amazing authentic Belgian Waffles!!! They were de-li-cious!

Then to church where Hudson met several family friends.
I can't handle how cute he is in his flip flops;)

And finally a walk on the bike trail with a stop at the snow cone shop.

I love the picture below of Hudson and his Grandpa. Such a sweet moment captured on film.

And then back to California!

Thanks Todd, Debbie and Amy for such a great trip. We can't wait to see you guys again!
