Happy Birthday, Cousins!

The Cousins turned ten this week, so we went up to have a little birthday party with them. Cake, ice cream, playing around Uncle Lou and Aunt Nancy's yard, some presents, that sort of thing. It went very well- chalk another one into the "good day" column. Life is good.

One of the good things was not having to shadow Joey the whole day. He didn't always engage with the other boys, but Joey did manage to keep them in line-of-sight most of the time (and those other times, were mostly when he came inside and sat with me.) When he got tired, he sat under a tree with a notepad writing letters.

Dear Unclewy, Please hogable us. Love, the Couzzins and Joey and Andy.

We think the translation of that is "Dear Uncle Louie, Please hug all of us. Love the Cousins and Joey and Andy." Well, something to do with hugging, according to what we could figure out from Joey's answer to "what does this say?"

Dear Andy, I love you. I am so proud of you. I will see you lader. Love, Joey and the Couzzins.

Just a sampling. He also did some drawings, mostly of Blue and lions (not sure what the lions were all about).

Andy spent the day following his cousins around with a T-Rex puppet, roaring. They thought it was hilarious.

Gotta love the good days.
