Fun With Cousins

We had a great weekend. My sister Dinah and her hubby Russ and their three boys, Elijah, Hayden, and Joseph came for a visit. This was special because, even though they only live about an hour away, this past year has been crazy for us and them and they have never been to visit us all and stay here since before we started building our house. That's been over two years! It was warm and perfect and we got to show them some fun places to swim and hang out here on Salt Spring. My kids had lots of fun with their cousins! We are really blessed on this island and have lots of great places we can hang out in the summer. We spent a lot of time swimming and boating and my two oldest nephews even got to try tubing behind a motor boat for the first time.

My nephew Hayden was so funny. On the second day, I took him and a couple of my kids grocery shopping. After putting chips, marshmallows, chocolate, and ice cream in our kart, Hayden announced, "My Mom would never be this nice!" My son Isaiah quickly sorted him out and told him that I hardly ever buy junk like that and it was only because they were visiting. Well, they are pretty special!
Thanks for coming Bueckert family! We love you!!

We had an awesome time! Hayden wants to live with you now (go figure.) The other day Joey was crying and I asked him what was wrong and he said "Can we go to Uncle Christians house?".
