Today we got to have the kids cousins come over to grandmas to play. After lunch we played tag tail zoo chase. It was so nice to be able to play outside during the day without instantly suffocating! Oh Utah summers are wonderful. We then made puppets and the kids put on a little puppet show for me. It was quite comical. My kids are loving being able to go barefoot in the soft green grass as opposed to getting poked and burned by the grass back home. We sure miss being able to do play-dates with cousins, so we truly love this time being around them. It is, however, really hard to be away from Daniel. The kids talked to him tonight at bedtime and loved telling him all of their adventures, and as soon as they said goodbye they told me they wanted to give Daddy a hug. Toast is used to having some body-slamming/wrestling time with daddy before bedtime, so he has been trying to compensate by subbing in Grandpa and Uncle Johnny. However, no one can give "hot-foots" quite as good as Daddy.-SO even though we love being in nicer weather and love being around family, we really really really miss our Daniel!
