We had a good time visiting family – aunts, uncles, Elise’s parents/ Efraim’s grandparents, and cousins. I’m really proud of how even if we have extremely different political views, we are able to move past that and not just get along, but really have wonderful, meaningful conversations. There was a lot of driving, but Efraim did fun activity books in the car and we listened to good stories. It’s great to have so many cousins together playing. We got to visit a zoo, explore the woods, watch movies, walk dogs, make crystals at the library, go out to eat in restaurants, enjoy my mom’s incredible cooking, play and talk.
