We've had a busy few weeks and so I haven't had a chance to post some super cute pictures of my aunt and cousin who came out for a visit. We went for a walk along Lincoln park the first evening. I've always held the belief that when you live in a climate where you don't have to prepare, truly prepare, for winter, you go a little funny. Case in point, this delightful driftwood extravaganza cousin found along the beach.
My aunt was a little uncomfortable in front of the camera. People forget that if you just do what you normally do in front of a camera you tend to look a lot better than when you stand straight and grin. Here, we caught her doing what she normally does, which is love her kids. How pretty, eh?
We trapped cousin at the top of the Space Needle and we haven't let her out. She's living on coffee and pastries like a true Seattlite.
What we weren't able to catch was how much fun Bug had with Cousin and Auntie. They taught him that John Deere is number one. They also spoiled him with a plate and cup and t-shirt that he now uses most every day with the stubborness that only an offspring with my gene pool could muster. Though the visit was short, it was great to spend time with everyone. We are off to the neighborhood Valentine's Party where Bug is one of two boys on a block of twelve children. Unfortunately, that is not a desirable thing in the under five set as Bug seems to have acquired the pre-requisite "boy germs" that come with being a "boy." I'm not sure about boy germs specifically, but I can tell you his nose runneth green and prosperous these days.
