The cousins were here all last week! Seven days of cousinly bliss. Five days of swim lessons together. One day at Lake Chelan and one day traipsing about town on the 4th of July. We shopped at the dollar store together, ate cotton candy together, dug replicas of the Nile river delta in the volley ball court together, swung on swings, slid down slides, ate candies out of Grammy’s crystal candy bowl, and ran about barefoot stepping on thistles and lying wounded until the Band-Aids arrived. It was a glorious time and yet…it’s not over. One more week with our glorious cousins lies before us and the boys are exhausted but ecstatic. Yeah cousins!
