Visit from a little cousin

Charlie stayed with us for Memorial Day weekend while Aunt EA and Uncle Scott were out of town at a wedding. It’s been a long time since we’ve had a toddler in the house, but we had a great time.

The marble track saw a lot of use.


We mostly stayed close to home, but we did make one special trip. Krispy Kreme had special blueberry glazed doughnuts, and we figured that might be an outing Charlie would like. He stuck with a regular glazed, and loved it. He had trouble understanding why he couldn’t have another one though, since there was a box full of them in front of him.

Sweet outing

Molly and Leah read him bedtime stories both nights.

While Charlie was visiting, our area had the second major flash flood in 2 years. We got about 27 gallons of water in out basement, which was not bad compared to many others. We had twin rivers merging in our backyard.


While I as vacuuming up water in the basement, Jen was using water for more productive use upstairs. After his bath, Charlie was happy and clean.
