We haven't been home to England in over a year and a half, so haven't seen quite a lot of our family since then.
Now that we've been gone for so long, it seems like a lot of people are seizing the opportunity to come and visit us, and see us where we are.
Last month brought a visit from Chris' sister and bro-in-law. Which was great to see them, but also exciting, as they came with our new niece Ayla!
At just five weeks old, they brought her across the Atlantic to come for a visit!
The trip brought a lot of firsts - including a trip for Ayla's first swim!
It was great to see one of our nieces so young!
Embracing all things American - we took Nic and Sarah to their first college basketball game!
It was so good to catch up and spend time together. It does remind me of how much I miss our family, and how much I wish we could see them more often.
Especially those that just aren't able to come and see us, and come explore all things Texan with us!
