…and lots of other cousins.Dave’s little sister Julie grew up here in the desert. She knows what it means to be here in June. (It means this horrendous stuff like 118 degrees for reals last week.)
But she doesn’t let a little thing like sluggishly vaporous heat get in the way of cousin bonding time. And oh boy do we love her for that.
Whenever she comes to town with her great husband and six kids it’s always a party.(Especially when it really is Grace’s birthday..)
All the cousins think they’ve died and gone to Heaven when they get to get together with those dear cousins.(Five of his siblings live close-by so there are a lot of cousins to gather.)
They stayed with us almost a week of their two-week-desert-visit.
We were smart enough to swim a lot.(I think we need a baby.)
…and to go to a farmer’s market to stock up on some serious food.
Because that many kids go through a lot of food I tell you.
One of the greatest parts as far as Max was concerned was that his cousin was willing to go to work with him:Now that is nice. Let’s just say he doesn’t have the most fun job in the world most days.
Sadly, it was Elle’s last week of summer school while they were here.
I’m pretty sure she survived though, especially when these girls came and stole her away for one afternoon.Yeah, I think they were ok.
(They did their own photoshoot. Love it.)
We sure like those cousins.
Thanks for coming, dear cousins! We love you!
