On one hand it seems like a lot of unstructured time, and on the other hand the summer goes too quickly and we miss them as soon as September hits.

We made a long and crazy road trip to Rochester – where the weather was balmy enough for a day (or 2) to hang in the hot tub. Cousin soup!

Zoe cried when we headed home because she already misses all her big cousins wanting to carry her everywhere!
