I couldn't resist posting some more photos from my parents' and younger brother's visit earlier this month. It was such a special time that we all will hold dear in our hearts for many years.
We got to enjoy a relatively cool evening (still rare around here) around the fire pit making s'mores.
My parents couldn't remember the last time they had roasted marshmallows.
We took a trip to a local museum and enjoyed looking at all the fish and wildlife. My brother Joseph and mom here....it's hard to believe he's 24 years old and in his 2nd year of a MBA. Where does the time go?
Annika at the museum.
My dad reading to the kids...they took advantage of having extra people around to read to them frequently.....
This was a wagon-of-sorts that the dad of the girls in the above photo designed and made a few years ago expressly for their family's yearly trip to C.W. Hey, with a family of 6 kids, you gotta be creative dealing with all the complaints of "I'm tired", or "My feet hurt!".
I thought it was awesome and had to take a picture.
We stopped at a hat booth and the kids all wanted to try on various hats. Which do you like the best?
The bus rides were always popular, just as last year.
Our trip to C.W. was a great success...we saw lots of things I didn't get photos of and made lots of memories just being together. Looking forward to going again next year.
And......I thought I'd throw in a couple of random photos of Ellia and her discovery that the plastics drawer is incredibly fun to empty piece by piece onto the floor.
