cousins

in an unexpected turn of events, elodie had her cousins in town this weekend. in a moment of craziness i promised them i would take them to knott's berry farm. me. with four girls ages 4 months to 16 years old. i hadn't been to knott's since i was a little girl so didn't really know what to expect. thankfully we went on a perfectly overcast, off-season day and had a blast! there were no lines and even i was able to sneak in a few big rides while my eldest niece watched my two girls. i took elodie on her first roller coaster ride and i can't tell you how amazing it was to see her face -- a little terrified and wild with excitement. it was a glimpse into how big her life will become and all of the things she is going to experience. we all fell into bed and slept like little babies (even francesca.)

  1. Looks like a super fun day, great pics. P.S. cousins are the best! My mom and her sisters did an amazing job of getting me and my cousins together when we were kids and now we plan our own get togethers even though we live in different cities.

  2. What a fun day! Looks like your little girls had fun!

    By the way, where did you get your little girl's bonnet? I've been looking all over for one for when my little girl arrives in a couple weeks and haven't had any luck. Thanks in advance!
