hello to good-byes

Our time with the English cousins is winding down. Tomorrow we drive them to San Francisco and watch them board a plane back to England. We’re so sad to see them go! I’m tearing up just writing this. I don’t like good-byes. At all.

Last week we had a couple magical days at Disneyland. It was sunny our first day–with lots of sunscreen and bottled water, and rainy our second day. So we purchased ponchos and braved the wet day. We had a blast!

How about some hellos for a new week?

Hello packing up the car and seeing off our English cousins. I’m so sad!
