Gwen and Asher with their beautiful olive Curtis skin.

We had such a good time for the past two weeks with Nate's brother's family. Jesse, Lara, Harrison, Max, and Gwen are so much fun to have around (and it makes me feel very cosmopolitan to talk about our family who lives in Nicaragua). We love it when they come to town, and I need to be better about getting pictures of them (or remembering to bug my FIL for the pictures he has taken).

Asher, Luke, and I were particularly delighted to spend some extra time with Gwen while the rest of the family had work/computer camp to do.

Asher asked when he would see Gwen the second he woke up in the morning and as he went to sleep after a prolonged tantrum after having to leave Gwen at the end of the day. He adores her, and we're having a hard time getting the message through to Asher that Gwen doesn't live at Grandma and Grandpa's and that we probably won't get to see her for a while.

Then, Asher and Luke were delighted with Harrison and Max who would carry them and talk to them and be endlessly patient with their much younger cousins...because who else will play hide and seek with them for 2! hours?

The HCurtis family is nothing but good to the CCurtis family. Lara and Jesse took Asher often in Ephraim and Phoenix, managing his allergies, and putting up with him in general. We can only take solace in the facts that Harrison will be coming back to Phoenix in a few weeks and that we'll get to enjoy the pleasure of our twin cousins, Nate and Will, in July.
