Even though we didn't get to see everyone for as long as we'd like (the trip home is always too short!), we think it ended up working out well for our families too. We spent the first half of the week in Plainfield with my family, and the second half of the week in Park Ridge with Matt's. It was so nice getting to spend time with our nieces, who we only get to see via Skype, and for the boys to get to spend time with all their aunts and uncles. This was the first time Cole met Aunt Lindsay, Uncle Jason, Uncle Justin and Aunt Megan (and of course, Aubrey and Reese). We cannot wait until we move home and all the kids can grow up together!
Here are a few photos from our trip...
