Meet Heidi and Brian (second and fourth from the left). They are Josie and Daniel's parents, and Heidi is cousin Heather's sister.
Auntie Janice says that technically Heather is my second cousin, and Josie and Daniel are technically Elizabeth's third cousins. That makes our heads hurt so we've settled on Auntie Heather and cousins Josie and Daniel.
Elizabeth was excited to have Auntie Heidi and Uncle Brian come and stay in "Bama and Bapa's room". Cuz you know, Grandma and Grandpa are in 'gola (Angola) right now and when Mr Sun is sleeping he goes to visit them. So when Mr Sun awake Heidi and Brian can visit us.
Brian makes the most incredible animal noises - he has an especially convincing Donald Duck imitation - which meant that Elizabeth chatters away to him a mile a minute. She was a little more shy with Heidi but warmed up completely over the weekend, even giving her multiple good night hugs!
We took lots of family photos all around Ottawa - can you identify the various locations? Whenever I'm trying to take a picture of someone else, Elizabeth now says "me too!" and tries to get in the picture.
