Here are the best-of from this visit to Rochester. Despite some periods of rain, the boys have had a BLAST with their cousins, aunts, uncles, granparents et. al.
A quick post with photos from our April visit to Rochester. Sam and Noah had a great time with their cousins, and it was great to have some quality time with the family.
We headed North for Thanksgiving with the Handelman clan. It was everything that holiday feels like it should be – a fire in the fireplace, grandmas and grandpas doting on their grandchildren, and a beautiful snowfall to top it all off and make Sam (and his Dad) happy to have taken the trip. We had a grand time with everyone, playing in the snow, getting Noah and Carter to spend quality time together (and celebrate their birthdays), visiting the natural history and kids museums, and just hanging out.
Close on the heels of Noah’s arrival, the latest addition to the extended Trotz/Handelman clan arrived on Thanksgiving-eve, a bouncing baby boy to Amy’s brother Eric and his wife, the ‘other’ Amy Handelman. At 7 pounds 3.8 ounces, baby and mom are doing just fine. This new Rochester resident quickly increases the grandparent factor from 8X to 9X in just a few short weeks for Marty and Sherrie. Will they be great-grandparents next? That’s probably at least ten years down the line though…
