We went up to Bellingham and enjoyed a wonderful family gathering. We arrived on Friday and left on Sunday night, so we had a nice long weekend up there. The weather was pretty nice and we got to take John to the park two days in a row!
On Saturday we had a family party and enjoyed the company of some extended family that we don't get to see that often. John really enjoyed playing with his second cousin, Sydney. She is eight years old, and John just adores her! She gave him her old basketball hoop, which he really loves! Even now that two weeks have passed, he still talks about her every day. The conversation is very predictable - this is how it goes:
Me: Did you get to play with your cousin Sydney?
Me: Did you have a lot of fun with her?
Me: She had to go to her home.
Me: She is so nice, she gave you her basketball hoop!
Me: And you got to bring it home with you!
Here are some pictures from the weekend:
