February was a very busy month for us. Looking back on these pictures, it is amazing to me how much Kalea has changed since the beginning of this year.
My family came down to take her to the San Diego Zoo for the first time. My parents came down along with my sister, brother and his wife, and my brothers sister-in-law and nephew. We had a great time watching Kalea see the animals for the first time. She really loved the entire experience. She basically didn't take much of a nap the entire day because she didn't want to miss anything.
Later that month, we had a family get-together with some cousins on my dads side that we haven't seen in awhile (and some we were only meeting in person for the first time).
Kalea got to spend some time with my Great-Aunt Sheila (My Grandma's sister). I was so happy to get some pictures with them together since she is the closest Kalea will get to her Great Grandma. I know Grandma Sylvia was happy to see her big sister enjoying her Great Grandchild.
We also got to spend some time with our Ohio cousins. Kalea was completely infatuated with the oldest cousin, Joshua. The two younger ones, (twins Joel and Anna) were not too into the group picture. I love this shot!
Later that same day, we stopped by my dad's cousins house to meet up with another cousin, Talin. He was being watched by his Grandparents. He is about 7 months older then Kalea. The two of them were so cute "playing together", or more along the lines of watching each other play.
Finally, Pat, Kalea, and I took a short trip to the San Diego Safari Park for a few hours. We are lucky to have this great place only 20 minutes from our house. We bought annual passes so we can just pop in for a few hours when ever we have a free day on the weekend. I love that we get to do this, and Kalea loves to see all of the different animals.
