Long awaited visit.


Cupcakes and cousins made for a perfectly enjoyable and parentless July. My sister, her husband, and four kids arrived from Texas to 65 degree weather and lots of rain. We were dying for some summer heat, but they were happy to have the cooler temps. Jenn and I haven't seen each other for more than a week since she left home in 1988. Thanks to some leftover tickets from my current state of bedrest, we were able to make this happen!

William arrived with his family and had to leave for work a couple of days later. I was able to enjoy a good week of parks and the cabin before being ordered to bedrest. After that, we hung around the house and let the kids play...

Craig entertaining William and Jennifer with some funny video on youtube.

Lucky for all our snack attack, the store is a bike ride away.

Pizzza, hot dogs, spaghetti were all easy choices for six kids.

what fun times and wonderful memories! I miss reading Jenn's blog. Did she take a blogging break or did she run off and start blogging somewhere else?

What a Great time for you guys.. It looks so beautiful there. But how the heck did you guys go swimming in a lake if it was only 65' out? Wasn't it absolutely freezing???
I miss that sister of yours! I haven't talked to her in forever. I think about her all the time.
