a week with a cousin
We don't get to see enough of our Colorado family, but they make an effort to see the girls every birthday and in the summer for the past couple years we have been able to have the cousins visit for a day or two in time for Sadie's birthday. This year we were lucky enough to have Nate here for a whole week. The kids had so much fun, it just may have to happen again next year if he and his parents are willing to lend him out for another week or two.
We made our way to the beach three days, played with friends around home, went to the Space Center and lived our days with an extra smile around the table.
