Philadelphia & Easter

The Penuels had a fun spring break as we headed off to Philadelphia, PA to visit our friends Saleem & Becca Zafar. Chapman did great on his first plane trip smiling at all of the other passengers and sleeping soundly most of the way. We were a little worried because he was on the mend, recovering from some sort of baby asthma characterized by snot and wheezing and a pretty nice hacking cough. Baby inhalers are not fun for babies.

Philly is a pretty cool tourist spot and we soaked up all the touristy things like the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Congress Hall, the "Rocky Steps", and of course, Philly Cheesesteaks! Chapman slept through most of his first taxi cab ride but was awake when we passed Lauren Graham (of Gilmore Girls fame) on the sidewalk.

After Philly, we road tripped it to Wichita Falls for some family time with the Lams. Grammy & Poppi got Chapman a new jumper which he loved bouncing in while his cousins made him laugh. One thing Chapman didn't love in the Falls was sleeping through the night. Despite the sleep deprivation, Chapman enjoyed meeting baby Maggie Ketner and playing with his little buddy Reese Wilcox.

We're back in Dallas now, excited about Easter at Watermark and getting back into our "normal" routine.

February 2008

February was a fun month for the Penuels! Chapman took this month's "cousins picture" for Grammy, enjoyed his wide array of play groups, mastered the art of sitting up, got sucked into American Idol, and ventured to Tyler, TX to hang with the Siscos and meet his "Old Uncle P-Rob" (pictured above - David's freshmen year pot-luck roommate).
