Best Summer Ever…And Then He Left Us

Posted on

You know what was awesome about this summer? Well, a lot of things actually, but one big really fabulous thing…that ended today.

My cousin Nate visited. For the whole summer. And he left today, which means (A) no more hanging out with Nate and (B) summer is over. BOOO.

See, when we were younger, Nate and his brother (Tyler), sister (Dani)(my mini-me) and their parents lived a happy 10 minutes away. Then, 5 years ago, as Nate (the oldest) was entering high school, they moved. To the other side of the country. Also known as Utah. And we haven’t seen much of them since which, frankly, sucks.

This summer though, after his freshman year at ASU, Nate came back to the ‘Burgh for three whole months. We got to see him all the time and it was fabulous. But today, he left to go pursue something ridiculous like a “college degree”. Pfft.

So in honor of Nateman leaving us, I’m going to stop crying and blubbering about how life isn’t fair and show you all some photos of our summer with the bearded wonder:

He's the brilliant-looking one in black.

We already miss you so much, Nate! Thank you so much for spending the summer with us, it was amazing! Good luck at school, we know you will kick some academic ass!
