This weekend in Mineral Point, WI with her cousins, Clementine started dancing a little bit. And she looked EXACTLY like Elaine in Seinfeld, but not quite as violent (George: “It’s like a full body dry heave set to music.”) The thumbs were up, the elbows in motion, it was all there in minature.
Great weekend at Maplewood Lodge. In attendance: 2 grandparents, 3 uncles, 1 aunt, 2 (step)parents, 1 niece, 1 nephew, 3 cousins, and 3 girlfriends of cousins (all really nice, smart, and cute…go cousins!.) And one Elaine clone slash daughter. Said daughter was in absolute heaven. Campfire, attention, nature, chaos, snakes, drums, gifts everywhere, boys to throw her around, swimming, hugs…it doesn’t get better than that. No wonder she couldn’t sleep the night before. So excited. I think she’ll look forward to the Maplewood Lodge every year until she’s a sullen teenager.
Thanks, Coleman and John!
