Andy’s family is scattered about the country, so this holiday was made extra special by the fact that it was the first time all the cousins have been together since Henry and Eleanor were born. There are ten years between the twins and the next-oldest grandkid, so needless to say Henry and Eleanor were doted on and had a blast with all the “big kids.”
We packed a lot into two days. Fishing, video games, golf cart rides, bocce, margaritas, chasing chickens, sunset strolls, seven-mile bike rides, pitting (and pitting and pitting) cherries for some homemade pie, ogling iPhones, lounging by the fish pond, root beer straight from the keg, examining pine cones, and, of course, fireworks.
We’re already counting the days until next year’s celebration.
