Family Gathers!

Wonderful weekend spent with family! Loads of games! Hot weather! Water balloons! Bikes! Basketball! Scooters! Dinosaurs! Treasure hunt! Swings! Hoola-hoop! and the list goes on!

...and the water fight begins!

Wet cool down.

Water balloon strategy?

Tub racing!


Bedtime stories!

Roasting marshmallows...
...with shades!!!


(record of my attendance)

CC could have ridden a scooter the entire weekend. After putting her to bed on night #1...
CC: I didn't get to ride a scooter too much.
Me: Sure you did. You rode it for a couple hours.
CC: But, I really wanted to ride it to my bed and park it by my pillow.
Me: Well, the scooter is sleeping in the garage tonight.
CC: I know. I hear her so sad. She says, "I want to share a pillow with CC."

Ashley guides CC in a treasure hunt with a map drawn by Sydney and Courtney.
(note the binoculars in CC's hand made with TP rolls)

If you look closely, you can see the large treasure box under the pine tree on the right! They found dinosaurs and a nail kit. So, they both had a manicure after their great adventure!

Thanks for a fabulous weekend!
