Family

Last week, my niece and nephew, came up from Missouri for a three week summer vacation with my parents.  It’s been quite a treat for the cousins to get to know each other better.

The two 9 year-old boys, Henry and Kaden, are getting along famously and have so much in common.  Anna is the same age as her 12 year-old cousin Hannah’s baby sister,Tori, and so Anna is excited to have a “big sister” to play with.

Today, we have the pleasure of having Karen stay with us overnight, while Hannah, Grandma and Grandpa drive down to pickup my other nephew, Cameron, who is 13.

So far, we’ve been swimming twice together, once at the lake and once to the pool.  Next week there is a free swim day at the water park and we will all go to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Homestead tour and pageant for my boys’ birthday parties.  We are hoping to get time to go to Wylie Park in Aberdeen and to several museums while they are here.  We also managed to fit in some garage sale shopping, where the girls found some cute new outfits.
