First, I have to take my hat off to my talented sister in law, Jamison who has already done a bang-up job covering the topic of Cousin Camp. I will not even attempt to top her photo essay of the week. See it here.
But I am happy to jump in with a few photos of my own, and say in my own humble way that we really had a great time last week down in Austin with Nana and Grandpa. Katie was the official weekend photographer with her snazzy new SLR
Though the rest of made noble efforts to keep up with her too.
Here are the youngest campers in the group, or at least most of them:
We visited the lake and park nearby
and learned (sort of) how to skip stones.
and then ate some more since we had a couple of birthday parties
for two of the campers
(thanks, Nana for the fine cakes!)
Everyone went to see fireworks, which I think was one of the best parts of the whole week!
There was lots of kissing
(what can I say, we’re an affectionate bunch!)
And more than a little
There was even wild dancing
with Uncle Andrew.
and Monkey, oops I mean Unkey Jay!!
But it was mostly great just
In fact it was such a great week that Jamison and I were despondent over having to leave.
Thanks again to Nana and Grandpa for their gracious hostessing and hard work to make it a great week for all of us! We can’t wait to come back soon!

Great pix! Cousin camp was so much fun! We are looking forward to the next one!!
Okay, that slide show was AWESOME!!! You clearly had the better pics, but I thank you kindly for the shout-out. =)
Aw… that was great (though I don’t think Grandpa did any “hostessing”). Andrew’s face in that crazy photo: priceless.
Bonus points if you caught the continuity error!
We loved getting to see all of you, and my girls will be quite sorry to know that they missed skipping stones at a lake 🙂
Nobody? Okay, I’ll give.
Just after the shot where my wife is doing her HAL impression, I’m pegged as someone trying to keep up with Katie and her new D40… but I am, in fact, holding that very camera in the picture!
Stranger than fiction? You be the judge.
