A visit with the cousins

Shane's sister, husband and their 2 kids came in to visit last week and alot of fun was had by all. We had a baseball game in the backyard at Gram's, races down the driveway, a trip to the Science Center and Krispy Kreme to watch them make donuts (can we say YUM), some swimming and backyard football, and a trip to the fair. It was a short trip that seemed to go by way to fast just as it does every time they are here. But Gram may be enjoying her quiet house this week. You know it can get pretty loud with 4 kids (7,6,4,2) running around wild!

This "race" is always a favorite thing to do in Gram's driveway she has the perfect slope that goes into the neighbors yard:) Abby was happy to join in this year and I had to video it because of her no fear and I will beat the boys mentality.

Here is a little collage of some of the fun

An "innocent" game of 2 hand touch football:) that became a little not so innocent when 2 boys who shall remain nameless couldn't stand the thought of loosing.

talking over a new strategy

Wyatt should have eaten a couple more donuts and maybe he would have weighed enough:) they said since he was not 50lbs it wouldn't work correctly.

Wyatt and M had no fear and rode the "scary" rides. This was one that C wanted to ride but right after this pic was taken he decided maybe it wasn't that great of an idea and promptly got off!

Wyatt and M on the Pirate ship, I am PRETTY sure they thought what have we done right about this moment:) but they both said they loved it when they got off.

Shane was the only one still in the pool so the boys ganged up on him.

Looks like you all had a good visit. Connor looks like he could belong to you and Shane. Him and Wyatt could almost pass as twins.
