here come the cousins

After a three week car trip from coast to coast (and back again), my sister and her family made their final stop in Utah. We hiked and ate out, the boys played Legos and Battlefront, slept in and talked late into the night.

Mary and Zoe didn’t really want to hike; I was happy to take photos right by the parking lot,

then run up the trail to meet the others.

My sister took Lizzy on college tours– BYU one day, Utah State the next– while Mary, Zoe and I stayed home with the boys.

They used two pounds of butter making the BEST CUPCAKES I have ever eaten (and I do not offer baking compliments lightly).

We almost forgot about the little boys– they are absolutely no trouble at all.

My sister drove back to California after just a few days, but she left something behind…

we get to keep Lizzy until August 19th. She’s the perfect houseguest: she’s up for anything, or… nothing (which might be even more important).

Ah, cousin love. It’s the best.
