Ring in the new...year, with new cousins and countdowns, and raisin-like bodies after hours of swimming feats in chilly weather. It seems, with all that life throws at us, that seeing relatives every few years still strengthens family ties a-plenty, but we adults sometimes forget that some were not born, or too little to remember past reunions. The Hall cousins had a wonderful time partying and playing this past weekend.
Some pictures (pre-official family photo since my lame-o battery died right then):
Noah and Sus appreciate that Russ can keep flawless time with Gracee in the bouncy seat and Schuyler in his lap.
Eh? What d'ya say?
