52 Weeks of Happiness - Week 46

While Scott, Ethan and I
love our move to Zambia,
my parents do not.
They claim they miss us,
but let's be honest,
they miss Ethan.
So they came for a visit.
My little cousin
(ok, she's 11 so maybe not so little)
also came to visit.
She convinced her parents 
she could miss a few days of school 
because she needed to see Ethan.

Don't you just love that?

We didn't tell Ethan they were coming.
We told him we had a surprise for me.
As we approached the airport,
Ethan announce;
"Don't tell me we're going to the airport!"
Ok, we won't tell you.

My parents made great time with their flight.
They were already outside when we got there.
Ethan saw my cousin first.
His eyes lit up and he ran to her.
He then acknowledged my parents.

Ethan loved spending time with his cousin.
They played like siblings.
It was great to see the joy in Ethan's face.

Happiness is playing with your favourite cousin.

Looks like a fun visit with the cousin.

I love when the cousins in our family get a chance to spend time together, and they love it, too!

What fun to have your parents come as well.

What a great surprise for Ethan. Do they have to come from far away? I do wish so that my kids lived closer to me. I miss seeing my grandchildren so much, to say nothing of my great grandchildren. We don't actually get much company. Most of them try to come at least once a year. But, like your parents, we are usually the ones to go see them. I just wish that I were a better traveler now.

Awe, how sweet. That rope swing looks cool. I hope your family had a great visit.
