Wednesday night was a cacophony of ‘I’m hungry’ and ‘I’m awake!’. Luckily the morning arrived and with it Jess, PJ and Ethan off a plane from Denver.
After a few minutes for the cousins to socialise they headed off to surprise Nana and Papa. We waited 10 minutes and then headed to the house ourselves. Papa had ruined the surprise for himself as he came to The Cottage Thursday morning to finish off some yard work but it was still a surprise for Nana so that was nice.
We spent the rest of Thursday and Friday relaxing and playing in the water.
Saturday was set for a Swenson family gathering so Dad arranged for my Uncle Bill to come by early to do some family portraits. As all the Whitney’s were home as well we managed to get a photo of Nana and Papa with their whole family.
From there we spent the afternoon greeting family members with shocked faces as they realised everyone had come to play. It was an amazing day of catching up and seeing the shift that has happened now that all of us kids have become the adults.
