My husband's brother, Matt, is in town. We call him Uncle Max (long story). Uncle Max is in the Air Force, stationed in Japan. Every now and then Elijah will make statements about how he wishes Japan was closer. The picture above is from our vacation last summer (I guess I need to get my camera out today.) My boys love their uncle.
Yesterday they each got special time with him. In the morning, Max took Graham to the park and ChickfilA. The afternoon was Elijah's. They spent their time at Monkey Joe's jumping around. They had a great time.
I spent the evening filling Uncle Max's belly. We had meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans, and strawberry shortcake for dessert, I also made a chocolate oreo cheesecake for later this weekend (if it turns out good, I will post the recipe). I am so thankful for the great relationships my kids have with all of their extended family.
