We had a great surprise this week, my first cousin Jackie came to visit us this week. I only have two first cousins period and we do not get to see them very often so this was a great opportunity! She was headed from Philadelphia through the South for a cross-country trip with her dogs to end up in San Francisco. the boys loved having their second cousin around and of course their cousin-dogs (Mommy's favorite type of dog!)
|Picnic Lunch with Cousin Jackie - I loved hearing them say her name. Will would say, "Jack."|

Another enjoyable dinner at Cracker barrel with my children
The boys ran with Meko for hours. I'm not sure if I want this in writing or not but maybe they do really need a dog. they had so much fun and definitely wore each other out. Gaines would run in circles with Meko chasing him just squealing in delight. Will was a little more standoffish. he liked poor old Snickers who did not jump as much but I do not think Snickers shared the feeling!

We had Girls Night at the Art Mill in Lebanon. it was so much fun! Of course Mom and I picked something loud and themed and Jackie's painting is so calm and artistic!!!
|Bye Jackie! Come see us again soon!!!|
