Family Weekend

In rare alignment of all the right planets and stars, Jeff's entire family got together over the 24th of July weekend.  7 kids in 4 different states (one coming clear from Buffalo, NY) is no easy feat.  It was so great to see everyone.  We played, participated in a bike parade, attended a children's fair, swam, did makeup (I think girls are always 12 years old at heart :), learned crochet, made bracelets for the children's hospital, played some more, ate lots of yummy food, laughed a lot, and made so many great memories.  I'm so grateful we got to be together for a few days!

We may not have the cabin anymore, but we still have the cannon.  BOOM!!

Cousins really do make the best friends.  Wish Bry lived a bit closer.  At least it's really easy to keep in touch with so many fun devices. :)

Sisters-in-law also make the best of friends

See?  Who else could convince me to do rub on tattoos? Ha!

Bottle rockets with Grandpa

The lineup.  Love these kids.  You would not believe the mess these little angels can make. 

Birthday bubbles!  Grandma wanted to celebrate everyone's birthdays at once.  What better way than with bubbles and cookies?

Oh, That was so fun! I'm glad we did girl stuff this time - a new, required tradition! :)

It was so good seeing everyone! Yes, sister-in-laws and cousins make the best of friends. Love you!
Thank heavens for the internet during the in between visits. :)

P.S. I need to make time to sort through all of my pictures.
