The day finally arrived when our boys came into visit us and meet Mary Kate for the first time. For those of you who don't know the boys- Michael and Patrick are Jill's second cousins. They lived with us for a few months when they were seniors in high school about 3 years ago. They now live in Arizona where they attend ASU. It has been a year since we have seen them and we were so happy for them to arrive. We had packed schedule for they were only going to be with us for 4 days. We drove into Cincinnati for a night and then off to the farm for a few days. They had never been to our home so we just hung around the house and chilled. The twins are so good with Mary and she can't wait to see her Uncle Michael and Uncle Patrick again soon. We were sad to see them go but were so happy they got to spend a couple of days with us. Despite a bit of an age gap and the difference in lifestyle between college students and new parents settling down there is still an undeniable bond that we have with the boys. Hard to explain but we love them both so much!
