Cousin Lovin'...

Even before the great AC outage of 2014, we had already planned to be in MA at some point during the beginning of July for a few different reasons.  

A - We had no plans for the 4th of July!

B - We always head to MA at some point for a week in the summer.  

C - Nick's brother and his family bought a new house in MA and were moving in at the end of June.

Although I knew I wouldn't be much help on the home repair/project front, I figured I could at least kidnap my niece for the morning and get a fun-loving 3 year old out of their hair for a few hours!  



Cousins!


I took the girls out to a local play gym/coffee shop that Sherrie recommended and they had a blast running around the place for a few hours playing, snacking and having fun.  Of course, trying to get a non-blurry picture of these two is a total and utter challenge.  SOMEONE is always on the move!








Thelma & Louise were quite adorable playing house together...



Would you like some coffee?



Taking turns playing store!


After playing, I took the ladies out to lunch at a nearby Panera Bread.  Eating lunch with two 3 year-old children is quite the scene.  Between bites, someone always had to use the potty, which meant dragging everyone into the handicap stall so I could supervise the other at the same time!  I was shocked every time we emerged from the bathroom to find our food still waiting for us on the table.



Ladies who lunch...


After a leisurely lunch, everyone had the yawns and seemed ready for nap time.  So, Georgia and I delivered Abby back to her parents and we headed home for some much needed snooze time.

But, the cousin fun wasn't done for the day.  We made an after dinner date for a frozen yogurt with Nathan and Matthew!  One of the best parts about Mimi's house is that Georgia can eat some of the non-dairy flavors at the local frozen yogurt place.

But, first... Georgia had to help Papa water the lawn!





We jumped in the car for the short ride to the FroYo and G was thrilled to see her big cousins!





While we were at the store, Nathan got up to wash his hands multiple times.  He later told his Mom that he wanted to make sure his hands were clean when he was touching Georgia because of her allergies.  Doesn't that just melt your heart?!?!  He is such a good big cousin!



Watching cartoons with the cool kids!


One of my favorite things about spending time in Massachusetts is all the great cousin time that Georgia gets to have with her cousins on both sides of the family!
