I love these little people! My cousins are all such cool kids – I only wish we got to spend more time with them. We had a blast with them last weekend. Check out photos here and here from last year’s get-together.
This weekend my husband and I celebrated our niece’s 7th birthday. She chose a peace sign/rainbow cake and practically got a whole new bedroom – a full-sized bed, psychedelic bedding, and a lava lamp. Reminds me of when I was her age! (And no, it wasn’t the 70s.)
Her little brother was wearing a shirt absolutely fitting for him: “If It’s Not Broke … I’ll Get to It.”
Happy 10th birthday to my nephew! We celebrated his birthday this weekend with a Minecraft theme, and as you can see he was pretty excited about it.
This weekend we celebrated my nephew’s 10th birthday. I think my husband had more fun with the new toys than my nephew did – he spent quite a bit of time building a huge marble track, eventually using every piece in the Marble Run set and the extender set. Don’t you love his concentration level?
Monkey bars were most definitely not my favorite piece of playground equipment growing up. In fact, I couldn’t even hold myself up to make my way across them. A couple of days ago, my husband and I took a moment on our walk to play on the monkey bars at a nearby park since there were no kids in sight. Much to my satisfaction, I can now monkey across them. (Is that the right verbiage?)
I cannot believe my nephew is 9 years old! He’s a young man now – not a little kid. His iPod touch is definitely more fun to him than I am.
We had a big family get together at my parents’ house this weekend, using my cousin’s 30th birthday as a great excuse to hang out. With 10 little ones in the family, we were grateful for a gorgeous day so we could play outside. As usual, I couldn’t pick one favorite photo. All of my cousins are so cute!
We spent yesterday evening hanging out with my cousins and their kiddos. Kids are so photogenic, so it was really hard to pick out a favorite photo. I chose this one because I love Taylor’s facial expression as she flies down the driveway on her trike.
