Cedric with his girl cousins the first day in town.
We threw a 2-year birthday party for Cedric the first week in Long Beach!
There were lots of moments of playtime and fun with cousins at Nana & Papa's house.
Good times with the STEP group.
We enjoyed Seal Beach, CA!
.... and good times visiting with friends:
The only thing that grieves me about living overseas is being far from family, so I was glad that on this trip Cedric had good quality time with four of his 10 cousins! (Here's to hoping he will soon be able meet and play with the rest of them!)
This was also a farewell trip in many ways. My parents are packing up and moving back to New Zealand later this year, so it was goodbye to the home base I've known for the past 23 years.
