The Whitney kiddos had a great time with their cousins from the Lone Star State. This was even the first time they were able to meet their baby cousin Kadin. Last time we were together with the Waits was Thanksgiving and I was pregnant with Kadin. Because of the time lapse, I wasn't sure how Joshua and Saraina would behave. But Joshua and Saraina did great and really enjoyed having cousins near... for even a brief time. It was so cute hearing them say their names and ask for them after nap time!
Our neighbors decided to keep things pretty quiet during their visit but things were still lively. Sitting on the porch we enjoyed counting how many police cars (marked and unmarked) passed, how many ice cream trucks we'd see, and how many tricked-out cars would speed by. I think the Waits were pretty impressed that they could buy cotton candy (which they did!) from someone walking by selling it. And I'm told it was good and fresh cotton candy. You can't get that everywhere, folks!
So, thanks Waits for visiting with us! We really count ourselves blessed that you would make a deliberate stop here and spend time amidst chaos (and filth! I was embarrassed I didn't get to clean the bathrooms before your visit!). We love you guys and look forward to visiting one day (God willing) your home in TX!
