Welcome Home!!!!!!!

Our niece, Jennifer, and her husband, Ryan, got back today with their new son, Lewis, from Vietnam! Living so close to the airport I HAD to go and help welcome them. And, of course, I HAD to take pictures!
Here are a few - with the captions being on the top of each picture.

Here are big sisters Molly and Charlotte waiting with the sign - to welcome their parents and new little brother.


Lots of friends showed up at the airport to welcome the Tompkins!


They're here! That's Molly running towards them. (Click on the picture to see it bigger.)


I think Jennifer's excited!!


Here's little Lewis standing! (He'll be a year old this month - so soon he'll be taking off running!)


It was all a thrill - and yes, there were tears of joy.

Life is sweet.
