Meeting a Cousin

Uncle Carl and Leilia came to Lincoln for a visit the first weekend in October.  This is the first time that we’d ever met Leilia, and it had been like 5 years or so since we’d seen Uncle Carl.  It was a wonderful visit and Leilia and Sam got along well!  We took Leilia and Uncle Carl to Prairie Hill to visit Sam’s old Montessori School (Leilia attends a Montessori school at home near DC).  Sam showed Leilia the chickens and ducks, and introduced her to Cookie – Sam’s favorite Shetland pony.  We also went to Chucky Cheese’s where all Leilia wanted to do was to go down the slide.  Once Sam showed her how to get up to the slide, there was no stopping her!  Sam and Steve had fun with all the different video games and rides.  On Sunday, Sam and Leilia baked brownies for lunch and then played with some blocks.  I remember with Poppy used to play with these very same blocks with Sam when she was a toddler.  What good times!

    I didn’t realize you hadn’t met her before-sounds like a fun visit!
