cousins

Today, we picked up a few groceries,
got haircuts,
hit the pool,
started a new read,
and patiently waited for cousins
while seated in the warm grass relishing some girl talk.


They've played trains, Wii, wrestled.
Made bracelets and necklaces,
designed their own fashions, 
painted nails. 

The animals are fed, chickens are in.

We've started the Prince of Persia,
devoured mountains of popcorn,
taken an intermission
to eat a second dinner of
doctored sloppy tacos,
Spaghetti-O's,
watermelon and ice cream.

We've made beds,
brushed teeth,
snuggled down into cool sheets,
and nestled under warm blankets.

Tonight,
we are enjoying cousins.

Life is good.
