We had a great time! The girls love seeing their cousins and how lucky are they to have all their grandparents plus four of their great-grandparents alive and well. They do get a little confused as to who belongs to who and "where do they live again"? So getting some actual face to face time is always a good thing.
I had to laugh as I downloaded pictures from the trip. The Captain and I bought each other a new camera for Christmas and it has been fun experimenting and going through the pics. I think the Captain had it in continuous shoot mode or something with these shots. Here we are getting ready to strap on the old feedbag.
Note the three blondes stairstepped down the upper left. That is my SIL Kim, and my MIL Mom Pat, and Mimi. I am thinking that gene pool is a very strong and lovely one. Good gracious.
Hmmm, do you think Maren could love Max any more than she does right here?
Well, apparently Maren does love Max just a little bit more. Honey, please leave his neck intact.
I think those Niebuhr boys love their Papa Joe just a bit too.
And why is that lady in the black squatting? Doesn't she know there is no one behind her? DUH!!
Maren - his neck- he may need that some day.
Kent? What ARE you doing?
I think this is where Kent said, " Hey, can we eat all ready!!!
Yep, pretty sure that was it. Kent stayed in a low and ready position to keep himself closer to the food. He was the Food Guardian. He's in the military. No one messes with the Food Guardian. In the military.
One thing we can all agree on. Don't play charades with the Captain. RIGHT?? (shake shake shake) Stick to the day job, Honey.
Thanks for the great time and the hospitality! We had a lot of fun - charades and all!
