Family Ties

My cousin and his wife have been visiting . They are from the Pittsburgh area of Pennsylvania. We took a drive to Laguna Beach. It's too bad it was such an ugly day. I'm sure they would have rather been home in the cold and rain, Ha! Ha!.

We had a really nice couple of days relaxing and talking about family, growing up Polish, life, kids, our elderly moms and everything else in between.
We ate way too much, but enjoyed some really good meals. Instagrammers will recognize my cooking photos getting ready last weekend before they arrived.

We were able to have the family (including my mom, sister and brother-in-law) over on Sunday so that Jim and Rene could see everyone in one place. Work schedules prevented everyone from being able to come over at once, but they got to hang out with all the boys and their families except #1son, who lives out of state. They even got a private tour of the restaurant where Evan works. Every time I go there I am so glad he landed that job. He's really in a good place.
Family visits are not over yet. #1 son and his family will be arriving in a few days for the Thanksgiving holiday. I can't wait to see them!

When I was out for my son's wedding at Newport Beach my Dad, Sister, Husband and I drove down to Laguna Beach. Love it. So different than Austin.
