Roger flew to Vancouver from Australia, and I drove up from Idaho to meet Magnus and to see Brad and Anette in their new roles as parents.
|The long flight was well worth it when Roger held Magnus for the first time|

|Aussie gear for Magnus|
|Hey Magnus - how do you like us so far?|
Brad and Anette are so relaxed and were game to take Magnus on outings.
|First outing to Starbucks!|
|A fruit bouquet was a welcomed gift!|
|Some naysayers might think it was gas that made Magnus smile. I like to think he thought his Nana was hilarious.|
|Toasting the new family unit!|
|Roger and I wrestled as to who would hold Magnus|
|Magnus is one lucky little boy.|
|The Kinley clan|
|The Perrys and Kinleys catch up after a long absence|
|Nothing like a combination of mountains, sea and boats|
We all know there will be challenging days and nights ahead of them, but as I said, at least they've experienced good ones already.
Magnus is many things to those who love him....and he really is magnificent.
