Weekend in Connecticut

Earlier this month, Rachelle and I visited her brother Philip and his family in Connecticut. While we were visiting, a blizzard happened. You can read more about our trip to Connecticut in my blog, Abstract Musings. The trip also gave me an opportunity to use my new camera, a Canon Digital Rebel XT.

Sleeping Baby
The principal reason for our trip was to meet our yougest nephew, Nathaniel, who was born in December of last year. The little guy is resting comfortably in his Aunt Rachelle’s arms.

All Smiles
But we also came to see his older brother Caleb. As you can see, Caleb was very happy to see us.

Two Boys
The two boys are huddled under the baby blanket Rachelle made for Nathaniel.

In addition to seeing our family, another highlight of the weekend was being around for a record snowfall.

One-Eyed Snow Bandit
Authorities have reported a one-eyed snow bandit was in the area. Caleb was excited to have so much snow in which to play. I must confess, so were his aunt and uncle!

Help! My Car Is Buried
My car was buried by the blizzard. Fortunately, we had a couple of days to spend digging it out.

Making a Snow Angel, Part Two
Rachelle also made a snow angel.

Doing It Again
The day after the blizzard, Caleb sledded down a makeshift hill of snow which had been piled up by a snowplow. Rachelle required very little encouragement to join him.

It's My Turn
At some point Caleb asked me to go for a ride with him. How could I refuse?
