San Diego – Cousins and more Cousins

My cousins Jon and Natalia drove down from Corona (about an hour and a half drive) with Ella (who’s 2) and Gavin (who’s 4 months) to spend some time with us.  We hadn’t seen them in over a year so it meant a lot for them to make the drive to see us.  Jon’s dad Barry was married to my Aunt Claudia.  Maybe you’ll remember my post from almost 2 years ago…. we lost my Uncle Barry on May 8th of 2009 to Pancreatic Cancer.  He is missed so much. 

Now you know that Riley and Hanna are only 3 weeks apart… Ella was born in January of 2009, making her 5 months older than Hanna.  So much fun having cousins so close in age.

Gavin decided to snug up and take a nap while we played at the park – smart guy!

We headed back home on Tuesday and stopped in the Tustin/Irvine area to meet up with Scott’s sister Christine and our niece Desiree.


So much fun seeing the girls with their cousins!

So Adorable!! These photos are so sweet! It is wonderful having cousins so close in age! It looks like they all had so much fun together! Caty looks like she takes on the nurturing big sister role to all of the kids! Looks like another fantastic day during your vacation!
