Far-flung family

We are looking forward to the arrival of many members of E.’s family from Finland later this week.  The first to arrive, one of her sisters, has already been with us for several days.  In that time we have been up to Maine to spend a couple of days with my folks and also catch up with a cousin of mine, his Okinawan wife and their two adorable daughters.  This weekend my parents will be coming down from Maine and my sister and her boyfriend up from Virginia to join us, E.’s family, and my best friend for a big party.  It is amazing how far-reaching our family connections are.  It is incredibly rare to get so many of the people we love together in one place, so we are really looking forward to the weekend.
