California Cousins

We had a cousin Fest here at Aunt jewels and Uncle Brad’s in California July 17th to July 23rd.  It was happy chaos for a full week with Collette, Kennedy, Cole, his friend Isaac, Makale, Dani and their cousin Avery, and let’s forget to mention Corrie to make things more exciting we also had Lindsay with her 3 kids, Brad and myself to make it a house full. Everyone bedded down on the floor couches beds anywhere they could find. Memories include a day at Knott’s Berry Farm. A pool day with a cool slide and cliff, Mission Bay Beach day, our pit stop at EOS Fitness to shower and clean up…. Loved the sauna party but left all 4 swimsuits! Little Mermaid outdoor play that night with a free dinner from Sonic because they forgot two of our burgers.!! Kennedy was amazing and courageous, spending the night without her mom for two nights. Highlight for Jules: a two-hour clean up party instigated by Aunt Colette. Lawns were mowed, weeds were pulled, windows were washed, house was clean, kitchen was organized and the playroom upstairs was perfectly organized to Perfection by Kennedy and Danny…. More clean than it’s ever been….a great service from the cousins! Brad was a good sport as the Schlappi invasion blossomed into a full-blown takeover! Makale was frantically searching the house for her wallet and $100 in cash…. the troops were enlisted and it was found in the dress ups after a sweet uttered prayer by 5-year-old Alaina. Lots of driving in California traffic, the kids weren’t a fan but we had fun conversations in the car and Bop-It competitions. Corrie loved having her cousin’s around — great time! Aunt Juls
“It was WONDERFUL to just be with the kidos and of course JULS was a JEWEL in letting us thrash her house.”  Already looking forward to being with my sista’s again Aunt CoCo
