We spent a week with the Gems side of the family a couple weeks ago. Some of the family spent a couple days in DC, then we headed out to Massadoah for some tubing, games, fireworks, a slide show to celebrate Mary’s amazing career as an educator, and hours and hours of cousin playtime.
Two of my favorite moments from the week, out of many wonderful moments:
1) Getting to take care of Olivia while Liz and Tony went for a float. Zoe had designated herself Aunt Liz’s personal tube driver, so they had lots of time to visit, and I loved having time to really get to know Olivia. The time went too quickly, and I have a much better feel for the amazing, funny, sweet spriteling she is.
2) When I asked Miles to pass me something, and he said in his sweet little boy voice, “Here you go, Chrisjennie.” I LOVED that.
