Cousins Gary and Elizabeth came for a week-long visit last week - and it was so wonderful! They were also here last April, when George and Olivia came home, which was such a huge help. This visit was just as great! We were so spoiled to have four more hands-on-deck AND nightly dinner conversation with another couple. Come back soon!
Gary and Elizabeth purchased an RV - "the magic bus" - and starting taking trips last year. They take a few months at a time and travel to and from a destination, stopping to visit friends and take in the sights along the way. It sounds like so much fun! Of course, DB is mostly interested in the workings of the bus... I had no idea you could ask so many questions about it. That's my car guy!
We love their stops here! Last year it was organizing the drawers in the baby room and helping with last-minute preparations to come home... and then caring for little tiny babies :) This year, it was caring for big babies and getting used to R2D2 (the ventilator). I mentioned it before, but they were also here for the March for Babies :) And took a lot more photos than I did, here are a few...
George and Elizabeth - having fun at the walk with Gary's hat!
Elizabeth and Gary came bearing gifts! This caterpillar was a fast favorite... which was good because Olivia needed some coaxing. She has a bit of stranger anxiety, which seems to be worse with males than females. Let's just say Gary wins the prize for patience! Actually, Elizabeth got sick for a few days (ugh) but Gary still came over by himself to watch George and Olivia... which is even more impressive when you consider that the first few days Olivia would either crawl quickly the other way or cry when Gary came to pick her up. Sheesh!
... an enticing necklace (she can't pass up accessories), and a few fish faces...
