For the last few days, we've been lucky enough to have family in town with us to help celebrate S and J's birthdays. We kept it pretty low-key, but I'll save all that for another post. This morning, we took my brother and sister-in-law to the William and Mary campus. Fall is beginning to make its glorious appearance around here, and walking around the campus in long sleeves and pants was pretty much perfect. There's something about fall that really rejuvenates me and truly wakes up my soul. I feel like the cool wind breathes life back into me after a draining summer. 
S carried this little watering can with her all over campus. It was a birthday present from one of our friends, and I'm pretty sure she'd sleep with it if we let her. Isn't it funny to see the types of things little kids get attached to? It seems that our two always carry a little something into the car. Right now I'm pretty sure we have a hat, a stuffed duck, a rubber duckie and an animal book sitting in our back seat.

Our gorgeous little nephew. His eyes are the most beautiful thing ever and he will charm the pants off of anyone with his smile.
S is not always super interested in other children, but she absolutely loved her cousin. She loved chasing/following him everywhere and it warmed my heart to see her play with him. Having an aunt, uncles, a cousin and grandparents here with us this weekend has been so amazing for our little ones. They have loved getting attention from them and my two are so lucky to have so much love surrounding them and so many willing to mug on them.

So, big ol' thanks to those who flew, drove from far away and down the street to join us :) Love you all! And selfishly, thank you for entertaining my children so I could actually peel S away from me for more than two minutes.
