And just like that, our family reunion was over. Shedding tears so be right back.
Hey you! It’s been a minute. Last weekend will most definitely go into the top records of our dazzling family reunions. This particular “get together” was unlike any of the ones we’ve had before. Three new babes have joined our family. Josephine, Nazar, and Oliver are the cute new additions to the family that make the rest of us look good. Meeting each other was a shy moment but then they played nice until it was tiring.
This was our daughter’s second air travel. She was pretty amazing at containing her energy and soaking in every minute. Both ways, Josephine managed to nap during the flight which made things easy for us. We arrived to Charlotte, NC on Saturday, the 13th. The divine grill out prepared by the hosts hit the spot. Russian-style shashlik will always make you lick your fingers. Another big “YUM moment” is using the leftover shashlik on homemade pizza! Overall, the food we consumed this weekend was beyond delicious and nutritious.
While we were there, we couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to get our family photos taken. We hired a photographer and spent an evening capturing precious moments. Once the sun began to set, and the temperature began to fall, our poor babies suddenly became cold. That’s when we decided to wrap up the photoshoot session because babies come first!
I am so grateful to God for giving our family the opportunity to reunite once again. Late night talks and laughs allowed us to remember what it was like growing up in Pittsburgh (it was never boring growing up with two sisters and a brother). During free time, our husbands enjoyed board games for hours and hours. Babies on their laps didn’t stop the game even once.
I’ve received a ton of questions of whether or not we would ever consider moving to Charlotte. My personal answer was always “yes!” I really enjoyed the nature because it always delivered on pleasant terms. I enjoyed the warm sunshine on my skin and breathed air that didn’t hurt my face. Charlotte’s modern and simple approach to life was inspiring. It definitely captured my heart the minute I stepped out of the airport.
