July 18, 2015 - Six Years and Four Months Later

It is the month of summer family vacations - our 7th without Josh.

First, my side of the family gathered for July 4th weekend. Our last summer all together with Josh was in 2007.

Josh, being the youngest in our family, enjoyed being looked up to as an older cousin 

Josh and youngest cousin (who remembers playing a lot of video games together) and Benji 

And we just got back from a family summer tradition - a week with Tim's family at Cape Cod. He would've enjoyed this trip: chilling at the beach, playing with the dogs (between all the families, there were 5: Buddy, Benji, Huck, Cooper and Sydney!), nice meals at the club, playing Catan, taking dogs on beach hikes, partaking in a myriad of beers and cocktails - the favorite was the Dark and Stormy, made with ginger beer and dark rum. 

Josh's last trip to the Cape (summer 2008)

RIP Josh - missing you this summer….

Summer Vacation is one of the hardest times for our family too as Josh was such a special addition to many of our Summer Vacation! Each year when we go to Bustin's Island we put on our Josh shirts and take a picture at sunset. Sitting on the dock where we have so many memories of him fishing on our last Summer vacation with him in 2008. Who ever is there shares memories from that last trip. This year it was me, Eleanor, Gigi and Jax. Gigi likes to hear stories of "Uncle Joshie" and so does JAX. They both wanted me to write his name on their arm like my tatoo so I did and we took a picture for you :) We love you and we keep him memory alive in our family :) Love you
