Boys did well on the flight out (not so much on the way back but hey, we'll focus on the positive.)
A big reason for the vacation timing was that two of my cousins just had babies (one in April and one in June) AND our other cousin, his wife, and son were in town from NYC.
For the first time, we were able to get a picture of cousins (some of us... there are 14 of us just on my dad's side), our kids (6 out of the 7 at least) and our grandparents who started it all.
Brooks is the oldest and he's not even 3. Its fun to see so many of us in the next stage of our lives and hope to raise our babies as close "cousins" especially since Brooks and Collins don't have any "true" cousins yet. Cousins of cousins? 3rd cousins? I dunno... its all family.
I wear my "black sheep of the family" badge with pride.
We stayed with my grandparents for two days and the boys had a blast at the park by their house.
Artichoke capital of the world? You betcha.
But other than that, it really just was a lot of relaxing, letting the kids stay up late watching movies, and sleeping in as much as we could.
Hope you all are having a wonderful summer and are getting some rest and relaxation of your own!
