Today, Nick and I drove to Connecticut to pick up Eddie......we have this down to a science.....they leave their house at the exact same time we leave ours. We meet at the half way point in exactly two hours.....we left at 8am this morning and we were home by lunch.....terrential rains and all. There were some wicked storms passing through yet again!!

We are very excited to have Eddie with us another week! Not only will the boys have this week together, we will all be on vacation together next week too........so they will have spent 4 weeks of their summer vacation together!

The boys are already planning every minute of every day............oh to be a kid again!

For me the absolute highlight of my day was seeing Sarah's excitement the minute she saw Nick and Eddie!

When we got home she was taking a nap, so when she finally woke up, I brought her down the steps and as we turned the corner, she caught a glimpse of the boys.........she squealed, no I take that back....she screamed with delight and gave them both the biggest big bear hugs I have ever seen!! She obviously remembers her cousin Eddie and all the fun they had during his last trip! Sarah did not leave his side all afternoon and everytime he walked out of the room, she would call him to come back!

Thats it for now......gotta run......we are in for another action packed week of cousin fun......stay tuned!

Cute picture of the boys! They are making so many great childhood memories! Cousins are the best! It's so cute that Sarah loves to hang out with them too!

That is so awesome! I'm glad you've found a way to allow the boys so much time together and Sarah too!
It's pretty obvious by their smiles how much they love each other.

I always wanted cousins close in age to me, but all of my cousins are much, much younger (some are even close in age to the Tongginator). I feel so blessed that the Tongginator has close-in-age cousins. And I'm happy for your son and nephew that they have that as well. :)

Got your message! We are (hopefully) going to get our referral for China by March (that is what they are projecting) and who knows about the kids from Haiti (we had a surprise on the way to China, too!) They were saying two years but things seem to be speeding up there, so MAYBE MAYBE we could have all our kids home for Christmas next year?? :)
