Now all of us cousins are grown up and our kids are looking forward to spending time together every summer. Now they’re the ones making memories. I had so much fun watching them and hanging out with them. And it's amazing how much each one of the girls look like their mother! Wish I had a picture of all of us when we were little to compare!
The week before the 4th of July, Emmalee, Jessica and Tiffany came and stayed for about six days until we went to Alabama (and took them home). Well, all of them stayed six days except Jessica who went home earlier for a cheerleading camp.
The funny thing is the whole time they were here, we stayed up in The Cedar Loft. That’s SIX people in 600 square feet. :) But you know, we really enjoyed it! It felt like we were on a vacation in a cabin, and I guess they might have thought we were crazy staying out there the entire time when we had a bigger house a few feet away! :) I also learned I could live in a small space and be happy!
So the girls did all the stuff girls do – they texted each other…………… when they were 2 feet away from each other.
|Jessica, Tiffany and Joy - cell phones were never too far away!|
They played board games and giggled.

They goofed off.
|L to R - Tiffany, Jessica, Joy & Emmalee|
They stayed up late.
They made silly videos.
They sang to the top of their lungs....and they danced.
And while they swam every.single.day., I enjoyed a dry view perched high on the porch of The Cedar Loft (they were merciless on that lower deck, I tell you)!
And they included Luke. Bless their hearts. And he enjoyed every single minute of it!
|Tiffany, Emmalee, Joy & Luke|
They made me laugh…..alot! I really enjoyed it and I know Joy thoroughly enjoyed having them here. (And so did Luke).
We hope it’s a summer tradition, because summer + cousins really does = FUN!
