{phfr} A Visit & Some Happenings

SK and I took a trip to my parents home (and Claire and Rose’s neck of the woods) last week and while we were there, someone obligingly decided to join us!

Meet Master Peter Karol McAvoy, the newest McBaby in the family, and the first boy in 5 years!  We’re all smitten with this little guy.

Meanwhile, SK had lots of fun with the cousins, but I only got pictures of her and Ruthie.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The reason why I don’t have more pictures and more to say about Peter is because right after he was born, I came down with a wicked cold and was very much out of commission for the last couple of days of our trip.  So I wasn’t able to hold or even see the little guy.  And now we’re back home.

It reminded me of the part at the end of the movie A Christmas Story when the Bumpus’ dogs break into the house and eat the Christmas turkey…

“Oh, life is like that. Sometimes, at the height of our revelries, when our joy is at its zenith, when all is most right with the world, the most unthinkable disasters descend upon us.”

Not to be dramatic or anything.

I guess we’ll just have to take another trip to New York soon!

  1. I am also envious of Rose’s ability to photograph well no matter what she has just been through. Look at her in that last pic! She looks great. If you took a pic of me now, I’d still look like I gave birth within the past several hours.

    And Roofers and SK are prolly the cutest cousin duo.

  2. What an adorable little Mister! Congratulations to all!

    And the last picture is pretty hilarious. Although, only hilarious if its not happening to you of course!
