we love our cousins here. i love that. our cousins are still the best in life right now. even over friends. i love that too. it might not last, and that's okay. i was sorting thru ~all~ the kids papers that they are bringing home from school right now...and these made my heart smile.
~from kaycee, dated 2-4-11~
(i invited my cousins over to my house. we had fun.)
(and this is the picture that went with it. love it, especially the earrings.)
~then these were the first couple pages of kaden's 2nd, 1st grade journal~
(my cousins are my friends. they play baseball with me. my cousins are fun.)
(my cousins house is cool because they have 3 boys. and a pool.)
kaden's papers are referring to my brother, matt's kids, who live in n. carolina.
they are very doting with him and give him lots of attention.
he spent 2 weeks there with kaycee last summer,
exactly one year ago,
when matt and i went on our 10 year anniversary motorcycle trip
across the country.
i still cannot believe that happened. :)
who would have thought that the very next summer we would be anticipating
the birth of our 5th child.
~wow~ that's all. ~wow.~
very sad this summer as my buckwalter family is
going on a beach vacation.
the expected birth of our baby falls around the time we would
normally go, and my parents decided not to go this year. :(
which means neither are we.
some pics from years past to fill my heart until next year.
i am not holding my breath.
i know all good things come to an end.
and i think that somehow it just won't happen again.
a girl can always hope though. :)
(sorry. couldn't resist. came across this from last summer,
overlooking the grand canyon. )
(and this was from our trip last summer too.
just made me laugh.
all of our self portraits while driving on the motorcycle.)
all in all.
i should not complain.
i know i had enough vacations last year to last a lifetime.
~well~ not really. but pretty many. :)
