So, this was how I spent last weekend.  Let's call it Sleepless in Seattle, because we were in Seattle and we got very little sleep.  We are only missing 2 cousins from my dad's side of the family.

 

We talked and laughed and ate and drank and talked some more.  I heard more good family gossip than ever before.  Some cousins hadn't seen each other for 48 years!

 

It was great getting to know one another again.  And I think I heard absolutely everyone say, "Mosquitoes love me!"  Now I know where this trait comes from!
