Wow...

... everyone was so nice about my poem the other day. Thanks! But you do realize that now I'm gonna inflict more of them on you? Can't get enough of those comments! What can I say, I'm an oldest child-- "approval driven".

We're having a great time with Sue and Ben and Violet here, but been cu-raaaazy busy all weekend. I have tons of pics and some video, too, of the cousins that I'll have to get busy editing and posting. As a "fun-fact" for the day, let me tell y'all to notice in the pics how much they all look alike. They're double cousins. What's a double cousin, you ask? Well, when two sisters marry two brothers, that's whatcha get-- double cousins. Kinda redneck-y, I guess, but Sofi has developed a superb British accent recently, so it kind of evens out.

Awww, I can't wait to see those pictures too! I bet you guys are having such an awesome time!!! You guys live way too far apart! I know whenever my sisters & I get back together, it's the best time ever!

I'd love to see how Sofi and Violet resemble eachother, as currently I do not see it at all! I was amazed at how much Sofi resembled Tessi, though, from your Memorial Day hike pictures. A Howell, all the way! :)

I wish we could have been there for the "family reunion"! Well, maybe not, as I swore I'd never go back to that part of the country during July or August again after I left! But, I'm glad you all had such a great time together:)
We're planning a trip east, probably around the middle of November, so hopefully we'll get to see everybody then! Maybe do an early Christmas or something;)
Enjoy your time together!! Miss you all!
