This past week was Cousin Camp, and it was a lot of fun, although we missed the Lone Star Girl away at Girl Scout camp. My two nieces, the Lone Star Niece (9.5), and the Lone Star Niecelet (5) came down on Sunday and stayed until we delivered them back to the Dallas family at the half-way mark in Austin yesterday. The Lone Star Baby (8) was on cloud nine to have them here.
We went to the beach and the pool and the museum and the Botanical Gardens and the solar system scale model and the t-heads and shopping for their mommy. We made Cousin Camp t-shirts and crafts. We ate tacos. The three girls played in the yard and on the Wii and watched some My Little Pony.
I read bedtime stories and sang lullabies. Lone Star Pa took photos and dug sand pits and trenches.
