16 Days of Summer Vacation: Day 8 (part 1)

Happy Fourth of July...on the Fifth!

After yesterday's washout, we were greeted with a humidity-free, sunshiney day. The kids slept in, Theo and I got a run in to the hardware & grocery stores, and geared up for the evening's activities.
But first, it was a day of goodbyes. After 4 days, Lori, Sammy & Dillon were heading back to Seattle by way of Boston. We had to hit the park to run out some of the energy before their voyage - and also get a coveted "Cousins" shot - though sadly, Scout was not in the mood. Luckily, Sammy helped her out:

It was so great for the kids to get to hang with their cousins, who they see, on average, 1x a year. Despite the inundation of boys, I think Sophia really enjoyed. And I know for a fact Theo is enamored with big cousin Dillon.

After some time at the park and a quick lunch, they loaded up the car and headed back to catch their flight. A few of the great goodbye shots:

The other goodbye was to our dear neighbor Danielle, who had been next door for the month. She and Sophia had become fast friends, but it was time for her to return home. Luckily, she'll be Sophia's first penpal!  What a great summer friend. Hope she's back next summer.
