7QT: Special Cousin Moments

Seven Quick Takes from our week with my sister and her son (aged 3).

 My sister and her son came to visit us for a week recently, and my parents also flew in from the East Coast for the weekend.  I was so glad to get to spend time with them!  It is so much fun to watch M play with his big cousin - he really wanted to wake him up everyday, and would greet him with an extra joyful "Hi, E!" as soon as he saw him.  Here are some scenes from our time together.


Lunch time at the craft table - we were breaking all kinds of meal time rules here - toys at the table, etc.  Living on the edge!

We took them to story time at one of our local libraries.  It is a fantastic program and the boys loved it!  And they loved showing the librarian the monster on their (matching) shirts.

Walking to the playground in the bike trailer.  It makes a great double stroller!  A slightly older girl and boy came over and admired the airplane (not pictured here) that M & E took to the park.  There was a little bit of a staring contest between the big kids and our boys, which my sister and I observed without intervening because it was no big deal.  Later, E told my husband that the big kids called them "spiny heads."  Hm......

You can't come to CDA and not visit Mudgy and Millie!

We stopped to visit the dam in Post Falls too, it had a great, old-school playground with some of the (not) dangerous playground equipment that has probably been banned from the newer parks (i.e., the spinning carousel). =)

Playing at the train table in Barnes and Noble after we took our parents to the airport.

TV time in Buffalo Wild Wings.  

We loved having our family visit.  We spent a lot of time outside, went swimming, explored the woods and spent a day up in Sandpoint too.  

In case you are wondering, yes, we did dress them alike the whole time they were here.  When my sisters and I were growing up, my mom and her sisters dressed all of us girl cousins alike when we got together.  So we are just keeping the tradition alive. =)  

We are so thankful for our family!
