A Cousins' Get-together

We had a fun get-together with a few cousins (the ones who were able to make it) to say good bye to Katherine and Mark who are moving to Chicago in a few weeks. I have always been pretty close to my cousins, but with all of us growing up and getting married and such, I tend to see them less and less. Katherine is my mom's sister Margot's daugher, and Bill is my mom's twin sister Kate's son. It was fun to hang out and catch up with those who were there.

Mark, Kat, me and Chris

Mark, Kat, Lucy and Bill

The girls: Kat, Lucy, Aunt Kate, and me

The other girls: Ruby and the Park's dog Sadie.

I may sound like a dork, but these dogs were so cute together I couldn't get enough of watching them play. It was hilarious because I took about 20 pictures trying to capture the two of them looking at me-each picture shows Ruby posing perfectly for the camera, while Sadie would not calm down. This was the best I got.

I insisted that we get a "family photo" of me Chris and Ruby, because we have never taken one and each shot we got features me cheesing it up and Chris refusing to smile...oh well.

He thinks pictures aren't worth taking unless you are doing something cool in them, while I tend to get a little camera happy.



Hey Sarah,
Thanks for letting add your blog. It's so fun to see what everyone is up to!

Hello Dear,

It doesn't really work for you to address a comment to a fellow would need to go to their own blog to post a comment that they are likely to read...oh and I know Ashley from DG, she's an Alta '98er.
