We had an awesome time in Benson, AZ last weekend. We've been wanting to visit for a while- it's been 3 years since our last trip there- and a weekend finally freed up. We rode with David's parents which was a true blessing. Plus we had Jean's help entertaining Jude in the car. He decided not to nap most of the way because it was too much fun having us sit next to him in the back. Audrey + Jaron were so sweet to let us stay in the big house while we visited. It's pretty neat to be able to visit family and have a nice place to stay. Jude got to meet tons of second cousins and his Great Grandma and Grandpa (photos in another post). We went to the zoo in Tucson, ate yummy bbq, got ice cream, went on a tour of Kartchner's Caverns again (not as fun with kids!), explored the area around the house and mostly just played. Jude did pretty well sleeping in the pack and play and having him in his own room was a lifesaver, honestly. All in all, I wish I was close with my own cousins- I love that David has so many and all of them are so welcoming. Some of my closest friends are David's girl cousins or his cousin's spouses. I'm glad I married into such a great family.
