Cousins & Butterflies

Thursday, June 14, 2012


Dear Olive,
In spite of the fact that it has.not.stopped.raining.for.one.single.moment, we’ve been having the most unreal week visiting my family in Coffs. It’s been quite unexpectedly fun to go away just the two of us*. We caught the plane up - the lowlight of which was you vomiting, the highlight of which was you getting it in the bag. LEGEND. You had the most glorious, heart warming, cuddle fest reunion with Roxy, and the two of you have not stopped grinning since. It amazes me, that after not seeing each other for six months, the connection between you is as strong as ever. Cousin love, so sweet. These photos were taken at the local butterfly house (where the humidity gave us it's own version of a vaseline lens). It’s amazing what touristy things you can find in your home town when it’s raining.
*The flipside of that is poor Shane is ever so lonely in Sydney without us (mostly you). And unwell to boot. Poor man.

That last photo is fantastic! I am seriously impressed she got it in the bag, in my many years of flying I don't think I have ever seen a kid get the vomit in the bag! She is a LEGEND!! x

Fun to be a tourist in your home town (just dont move back permanently like we did... you run out of ideas real quick!)

That last photo is so cute and quirky - she looks like a little oompaloompah (I mean that in the nicest possible way!) xx

They look like they're having a blast. Cousins are the best! In flight vomits, not so much fun.

My sister's daughter came along only 11 weeks after Everly - they recently spent a week together and it was so nice to see the cousin-love between them! My sis lives in Melb, so I hope our girls enjoy the reunions every few months too. And that last photo of Olive is amazing!! x

Madeleine said...
