Visiting with our sweet cousins...

Growing up, we had a lake house on Lake Brooklyn in Keystone Heights, only a few doors down from my Aunt Cathy and Uncle Mike's lake house. I have wonderful memories there with my cousins. Even though they were all several years older than me, we always had so much fun. In the last several years, as we've all grown up and moved out of our parents homes we've not seen each other as much as I would like. One of those cousins made it a little harder to see them last year when they moved to Costa Rica! Kelly, her husband Daniel and their boys Luke and Ben are missionaries in Costa Rica these days and came home for a short visit. :) Mom and I took the kids over to Aunt Cathy's house so that we could all spend some time together.

Luke and Ben wanted to sweep up the leaves
Brookelynne wanted to help too!

Braxton James hung out with Grandma most of the time. How handsome is he?
Aunt Cathy and Brookelynne  pushed Ben on the swing

And then Brooke came back to help Luke finish cleaning!

The boys found a catapiller and Ben decided to show it to me, but he didn't want to look at me when he did! :)

We tried several times to get a smile, but the yawn and "showing his teeth" grins were the best we could get!

We had a great time talking about their time on the mission field and the new baby boy they have on the way! Hopefully they will make it back to the states in 6 months or so and we can get some more time with them then! :) Until then, please keep this sweet family in your prayers. They are in a very poor and dangerous area of the country and Daniel helps host teams of people each week doing all different types of ministry. They are reaching people with the gospel and disciple them as well!
