crashing cousin camp

My parents have been running a 'cousin camp' (aka Camp Oma Opa) for the past 5 years. It's great for the older cousins to get together from around the country (VA, CO & GA) in Tennessee with Oma & Opa and have adventures together. The prerequisite for cousin camp is that you must be five years of age. Unfortunately, Hudson doesn't meet that cut off. He is much like his mother and doesn't like to be left out of things.

My sisters typically hang out in GA with our aunt and uncle while Opa and Opa supervise the controlled chaos of 8 kids, pre-teens, & teens! I decided Wednesday morning that I needed a break from the city and Dave, the encouraging husband that he is, said I should go. A few airline miles spent later, I had my ticket, we let the nanny know she had Friday off and Hudson and I were on our way to GA Friday morning. As my parents were in the throws of the previously mentioned "controlled chaos," we decided to keep it a surprise for Saturday, when my sisters had to pick up their kids. To contribute to the surprise, Andrea carried Hudson to say hello while Katherine played paparazzi....The expressions are priceless:

 Opa isn't sure what is going on. Where did Andrea get a baby?

 Craig knew what was coming and was happy to see how much Hudson had grown..

 Oma can't figure out who Hudson is...It hasn't been that long, has it?

But she was sooo happy to get her hands on him! Hudson fit right into the chaos. He loved all the people! And he liked to show off how he can crawl and pull up..on everything including people!

  1. So cute! I had to read this sentence a few times though: "I decided Wednesday morning that I needed a break from the city and Dave...." Haha.
