The Annual Samuel Family Visit!

The past two weeks have been filled with lots of fun, quality family time, and of course lots and lots of eating.  Scott, Betsy, Ethan and Mia made their annual visit to the States and were able to spend almost 2 weeks in Austin.  We were able to see them most every day and Joshua spent most all day playing with Ethan and Mia. 
It was so much fun seeing them interact.  Joshua was just 3 months old the last time they were here and really wasn't able to play.  This time around, he was able to play and run with both Ethan and Mia.  Ethan was so gentle and careful with him and Mia loved being a big sister to him.  She had the biggest laugh and Joshua would laugh when she did. 

Dave and Siji came for the weekend and we spent Sat. and Sun going to food trailers, sleeping, and eating some more.  Sunday evening we went to Ben and Abby's house and of course ate more - this time barbeque.

We celebrated Ethan's 4th B-day a little early on Tue and we took lots of pics with him, the balloons (I still have anxiety when I see them being squeezed or pinched), and the cake.

We were so sad to say bye to them on Thursday evening.  Joshua was very receptive to the kisses he received from Ethan and Mia and I think he could tell he was saying bye to them.  We had such a great visit and next year will be even more fun :)

Here are some pics from the past two weeks:

I love Torchy's chips!
