A rare family gathering

My Uncle Bob flew down from Montana for the first time since the estate sale.  It was great to see him again, even if I didn’t really get to talk to him much this time around.  This is my mom’s older brother and her only full sibling. 

My cousin, the oldest daughter of my mom’s sister, also came.  I haven’t seen her since Meghan (her daughter) was just a few months old.  I used to babysit this cousin.  lol.  Meghan is about 8 months younger than Zane and the two of them entertained the group. 

So the group included:  My grandma, Bob, my folks, my brother and his wife, Jamie and her husband and daughter, and Zach, Zane and me. 

Some of the antics of Zane & Meghan:

  • Zane gave Meghan a ‘high five’ and she followed him around the rest of the evening trying to give Zane five.
  • Meghan declared the peaches to be ‘poopy’
  • Meghan decided that the (Little People) zebra, hippo, chicken, and jaguar were all ‘puppies’.  It was cute.
  • Zane saw the cookies on the buffet and through the whole meal kept asking if it was ok to go get a cookie now, and followed Zach and I to the buffet any time we went there, stood at the end of the table in front of the cookies asking if he could get a cookie.
  • Individually and together, they spent a lot of time being entertained by blowing up balloons and people letting air out of them.  They would take the balloon to different people to be entertained by them. 
  • At the end of the evening, when it was time to say goodbye, my grandma was leaning down to give Zane a hug.  He leaned in towards her, put his hands on her cheeks, gave her a kiss, then pinched her cheeks and grinned an ornery little grin.  Silly boy.
