The Relatives Came

This weekend was a lot of fun for me! I got lots of attention from all the relatives who came to Ferry Point to see the Sobiechs one last time before they leave for "Arkan-sauce," as Uncle Kim says. I'm not the youngest of the cousins anymore because cousin Tiernan was there and he was only 10 days old, but everyone still wanted to hold me so that's okay. All those unfamiliar people were a little scary at first, but they just wanted to give me kisses and have me put my fingers in their mouth, so pretty soon I was having a lot of fun. There were lots of kids running around. Cousin Faith is learning to walk, Abi is getting very tall, Megan and Taya came all the way from Warroad with their mom, Tera and Grandma Carol. It was a busy house. I even got to meet Great-uncle Kim for the first time!

Then on Sunday we met Great-aunt Carol, Tera and the girls at their hotel for a swim! I'd never been in a swimming pool before. The water was chilly at first and I kept shivering. But it was fun to swim around and pretty soon I wasn't cold anymore. I got to swim with Daddy and Mommy and Daddy again. And cousin Abi was swimming with her daddy too. Faith didn't really like the pool, but Megan swam a lot and Taya got in for a little bit too. The water tasted a little funny. One time it even went up over my face, but I didn't mind. I would have liked to swim longer if I wasn't so tired. But it was way past my nap time. I hope I can swim again sometime soon!
