Although we were all cautiously worried about Tio we all found light hearted moments in the day. The best part of the day was spending time with my family which we haven't found time to do in a while. I haven't gotten to see my cousins since the few times I was passing through Slaton during travel season when I was in the admissions office. And that was only for a few nights and minutes at a time. Or at the hospital when family was sick. Mitchell hasn't really gotten to spend time visiting with them ever. Getting to hang out and visit with my cousins Raymond, his wife Susan, Laurie, her daughter Hopie, and my cousin James made me think of times when we little and would come to Tio and Tia's house to visit during summers. The only people missing was JR, my parents, brother and sister. And of course Tio.
Things weren't that different from year's ago. Comments were still made about my large feet.
The highlight of the day was not mine. It was Raymond's and his camera phone. Please see the evidence below.
These aren't the worst of it. There was a picture of Hopie being attacked by a giraffe and then also looking like some kind of deranged Mickey Mouse. I won't go into details. Yes, this is my crazy family and why I love them!
