Family - lots of it

Last Thursday we made a quick family trip to Florida to visit relatives. We arrived at our destination Thursday night, and came back home Saturday.

Because we've spent the last six years figuring out what we're going to be when we grow up, and moving every year to a new address, we hadn't seen some family members in a long time. Some of the younger cousins couldn't remember one another (or their Aunt Laura - Oh, the horror!) Some cousins (Julian, Sam, and Darrin's newborn son, Rylan) weren't even born the last time we were all together. One cousin will be born in April, but we saw his ultrasound picture. We had a great time - all 48 hours - together, and promised to make more frequent visits in the future. They'll come to us in Alabama, and we'll go to them in Florida. And those that are too elderly to make long trips any more assured us we are welcome to come stay with them now. Twenty-three of us ate, talked, and played together. It was a mini-reunion.

We were all so surprised at how similar Marley and Alyssa are - both in appearance and mannerisms:

Glenn, Amy, Tom and Karin were all missed. Maybe this summer we can make it a full family get-together.

Sounds like you had a wonderful but short visit. It would be so nice to meet and visit with the rest of the family.
