Family Time

I have been in the US for a week and a bit, though it feels like longer.
I have been travelling back and forth between England and America quite a bit since Grey was born.
I have always been a 'family girl', but it has peaked since having a child of my own. Family always makes things better whether life is or bad. So I have been cherishing every trip I've taken out here and every moment Grey gets to spend with his cousins, Aunties, Granparents and Uncle Bubby (my brother).

So far in this trip we have been to Arizona, Lake Taheo (Nevada) and back to Arizona where we have spent time with my Dad, Stepmom Toni, Sister, Brother and long lost cousins that I hadn't seen in 20 years.

In a week I will be in Denver, Colorado to see my Mom, Stepdad and Sister.

Here are some of the highlights of our trip so far.

The day after I arrived, my stepmom was kind enough to take me to get my hair can't really tell in this photo BUT I DID GET IT DONE!
The little rockstar ready for his flight to Tahoe

Highlight of the Tahoe trip was my cousin putting her blonde extensions in my stepmom's hair and pretending she was a blonde for the night. 

My Dad was clearly pleased with his new blonde wife! HA -Photo Curtesy of Breanna Watkins

Then my cousin's hubby was kind enough to let me turn him into a woman for the night. 
Best looking 6'6" woman I have ever met
You can tell Grey has been on a shoot or two with he tries to beautify my stepmom (his memaw)

Uncle Bubby time

My sister quite literally flew down the hill and just after i took this picture I had to quickly split my legs and she went flying through them....I nearly lost both legs!

Cupcakes for Grandma Jeep's Birthday...Unfortunately I didn't make these!

My double layer chocolate cake with a white chocolate ganache on top. (I didn't take into account that I am cooking in the desert and luckily I checked the cake 15mins into baking and it was already DONE!)

That's all for now, but I will update with more later.
