The days fly by...

We just spent the weekend away with Matt's family and all the cousins were there!  My youngest nephews are getting a lot bigger and it was fun to make one get the giggles.  The other (older) one gave me the giggles...I could talk to that kid for days!  Cousins are also really good friends in this family and so they all paired up and kind of took off.  As I tucked EJ into bed Saturday night, I told her that I hadn't even seen her that day (and it was a pretty accurate statement).  Basically, a ton of fun was had by all.  What didn't happen was photos...I didn't take a single pic.  And it wasn't that there weren't super cute pics to be taken (I was so mad to miss capturing a couple moments), it was just really nice to be in the moment and enjoy everyone.  Sometimes that is even better, right?

So, I don't have any swimming or playing or fishing photos for you, but I will leave you with a couple highlights from this week at home (you've already seen pics of swimming lessons and tball and sports class).  We went to a presentation at the library with animals that the kids got to touch and we spent the morning at the Children's Museum with EJ's friend too (getting to see Auntie Alice there was a big bonus)! So glad to have fun ways to escape the weather (one day was super hot and one was very rainy).

Great pics! One of these days we will have to take a trek to Milw. to check out the Betty Brinn. That is so neat that your kids have cousins close to age to them - on my side the youngest cousin is 13!

I can't believe the kids allowed a snake to crawl on their necks. Very brave! And cool!

It looks like you are having a great summer!! You're right...the days really do fly by!

The snake pictures are very cool, many of the library demonstrations are pretty neat, we try to take advantage of as many as we can. Also so fun that your kids had some great time with their cousins ~ for us that's pretty limited and precious time and it's the best!!

Oh, so jealous of those snake-handlin' photos! I actually recall going to a snake-program at the library as a kid, but the snake present was waaaaay too big to be draped around anyone's neck, so he was only for petting. ;) (I still remember being surprised that he wasn't slimy!)
