We were so lucky to have my Aunt Sherry (my mom’s sister) and Uncle Jeff come to the east coast from their home near San Francisco along with my cousin Jessie, her husband Mike, and their 5 week old daughter Matix.
We have been really fortunate to see them every summer for 3 summers in a row, even though the first summer was sadly because of my grandfather’s sudden death, and last summer was because of Papa Alan (and his twin brother Marshall)’s stone setting. This summer, though, was because of a happy circumstance! Sherry came to Cleveland for a friend’s wedding, and the whole family decided to come along and take the drive down to Virginia to see us, meet the twins, and we could meet Jessie’s baby too!
They could only be here for a short visit, but it was wonderful to see each other, pass the babies around, trade mommy stories, and just be together to celebrate life and happiness!
