Where to even begin? We had such an incredible week in LA. First and foremost we had lots of good, quality, memory-making, family time. We met our adorable baby nephew and saw our precious niece. We were able to have good visits, play with the kids, see lots of sights and enjoy the city all while being with my family. It was a good mix of adventure and sight seeing and we did age appropriate things that weren't too exhausting or time extensive (we can tend to push it from time to time) :)
We attended a special ceremony in the Jewish tradition; the giving of Hebrew names to their children. It was very intimate, touching celebration and beautifully paid tribute to both the Jewish and Christian heritages Tilly and Teddy posses. I was personally honored to witness it and be a part. Afterwards there was a fun party with the largest piñata ever! All of Lauren's family flew in for the event and many of their friends were there with their kids.
Nora had so much fun at Mullholand Tennis club playground she flipped! (Going down the slide head first)
Jason speaking about the meaning behind each Hebrew name at the naming ceremony. An obvious favorite is one of Venice's Hebrew names, David. Hearing that made David Franklin turn to me with a big prideful smile.
All 5 cousins lined in a row from oldest to youngest.
Teddy and Ikey- BFFs...(One day)
Of all we did and saw, swimming at night was one of the biggest deals to them!
We had a pool party everyday, another highlight for all of us! This was a pretty typical scene and one I'll always remember fondly. Thanks for the memories!!
