The end of our summer brought two very special visitors…my aunt and cousin! I haven’t seen anyone in my family in a few years, so it was more than wonderful to get to visit with them. Their visit timed out with the boys first week of school so they did most of their site seeing solo. We did although get to show them around Monterey and visit the aquarium. We also had lots of time to catch up and just talk. I don’t feel like I know my mom’s side of the family very well, we didn’t spend much time with them growing up. So I took this as an opportunity to get to know my cousin and aunt. We had lots of long great talks, that did my heart and soul some serious good. I really hope this was the first of many visits with them. I also hope their visit opens a door for the rest of my mom’s family to also come out. Below is our visit to Monterey…
