The Relatives Came

The Relatives Came   by Cynthia Rylant
So, this is one of my favorite books!  I love how there is "lots and lots of hugging" and how they "sleep here, there, and everywhere" and how they have to leave in the wee hours of the morning to drive back to Virginia where their crops have ripened and are ready for the picking.  The illustrations are just phenomenal... especially where everyone sleeps!

Well, our relatives came this past week and it was just delightful!  Our house is small quaint and cozy and we do not have many places for extras to sleep, but we all squeezed in this humble abode and had a jolly good time.

Uncle Tim is our resident "know everything about technology" family member, so it was a treat to get his help with Andy's business website.  Tim managed to talk him into joining Facebook.  (Let the trumpets sound!)  

I also got a little help with my blog...yippee!

Although there was swimming, and shopping, and eating, and trips for ice cream, we spent most of the time just hanging out.... with family.

And this little munchkin finally got a long overdue birthday present!

And then, of course, there was some sprinkler fun!

In a couple of weeks we will be heading their way for this annual event...

...and another dose of "cousin love."
