May 2nd-May 3rd: Willow Meets Some of the Portée Clan

This weekend Willow's cousin Delaney had her 1st Communion and we went up to help celebrate the event!

The service was to start at 11:00 am but we did not think that we would make it out with enough time to get up to Stormville, NY on Saturday morning so we drove up Friday night and bunked with with The Senior Family (Aunt Kathleen, Uncle Howie and cousins Megan, Courtney and Delaney). Willow had a great time playing with her cousins and running Aunt Kathleen all over the house! The only thing she was not sure about was their St. Bernard, Coda. He is a lovely dog but is about the size of a Shetland pony! Willow was careful to keep a safe distance from him.

On Saturday morning, we enjoyed some breakfast and got ready for the big event but not befroe a few pictures were taken.

Us with the Guest of Honor, Delaney.

At the church, we met up with Cousin/Aunt Kitty and her grandson, Jonathan. (Willow was thrilled to receive a NY Yankees sweat shirt from them and wore it proudly!)

After a wonderful luncheon at an Irish Pub in Poughkeepsi, we took the return trip home and even though Willow slept all the way home, she went back to sleep in her crib with little fuss!

She has now met most of the Portée family. Uncle Paul, Aunt Jackie, cousins Robin, Jason and Jenny as well as Aunt Patty, Uncle Joe, cousins Carolyn, Sarah, Joey and Jake are next!
