Before our worlds were turned upside down Alex’s family came out to The Lodge for a visit. Now with the state of things we feel extremely fortunate this visit was able to happen. Alex’s parents, his sister and her husband and their two kids, Nico and Marco, came for their first big family trip together. It’s only been three weeks since they left but it feels like it was so much longer than that.
Alex and I had been looking forward to this for months. This is what we had been picturing when we were imagining our life at The Lodge. It’s special enough when the grandparents come or our kids’ uncles, or our friends, but to have our nephews here was an absolute dream. It is really hard to be so far away from them and we just hope that “the cousins” can spend as much time together as possible.
Our time together was really special. We went into things without much of a game plan and wanted to just spend time together. And that we did!
Alex and I got to sneak away one nap time for a ski date!
Donna also hired our family photographer to come do a photo shoot one morning. I’ll share those pictures in a separate post.
Being surrounded by our extended family at The Lodge is something we will continue to look back on with fond memories. We’re so grateful for this time together, and for Alina and Alberto to travel with their two little ones to come and see us. We can’t wait for the next visit together!
