Aunt Lea and Cousin Keara

Lea was nice enough to come out to visit us when Dash was brand new.  We had a great time.  It was great having Lea around, talking about the times she had kids Dashi's size.  Dec loved Lea - I still think he prefers her reading to anyone he knows.

And then Keara showed up!  It was awesome.  It was like a mini-Watson-Donova-combo-platter.

Lea sang us It's a Rainy Day all week-end and we sang here South Australia

we love these two! great pic!

a wee little dash says hello to keaz
