This is...What?

This is what happens when your kids move 6hrs. closer to you..you get to see them 2 weeks in a row! Craig, Amy, Katie, Taylor, and Sophie came down to see us so Amy and Craig could go to Columbus to visit a friend and also attend the Temple. I have a ton of pics and will actually blog some more later, but by and far the biggest hit of the weekend was the pool. We finally got it all up and running and even though the water was chilly to say the least, it didn't stop anyone from giving it a try. Those kids love, love, love water and we had a blast! They got to see their cousins too. On Friday Phil, Amanda, Alexis, and Addy came for dinner, then on Saturday, Jack and Driana, Summer, Anthony, and Cameron came for dinner. Whew, it was a whirlwind and as I said, I have so many pics I have to do another blog entry to get them all in! I love times like this when everyone gets together and enjoys each other's company.

This is what pure joy looks like.
This is what you do when you get out of the pool and have zero body fat to keep warm!

This is what really serious about swimming looks like.
This is what Anthony does on a hot, muggy afternoon.
This is what you play in when the bigger pool is :1) too cold for you..or 2)to scary for you! Don't worry Cameron, you'll get the hang of the bigger pool soon!
This is what you look like when you go and visit your YaYa's work place...Taylor's not a doctor, he just plays one in my kitchen...and he didn't even stay at a Holiday Inn!
This is what you look like when you think your flowers have fallen off your cute shirt!
This is what happens when 2 people fall in love!

This is a fun hobby. It definetly takes the yuck out of journaling! You never know who you're going to inspire when you talk! Thanks for all the inspiration. I enjoy having your counsel in my life.

By the way, Pres Meeting is 6/23 not this week.

What a nice weekend you had!!(...just read Sparkey Dog-Dog too) You are right, that pool looks like so much fun! We got a small variety for the kid's visits too. (love that Aldi's misc section!) That Katie is really getting blond. Cameron looks like he enjoys Ya-Ya's back yard too. The last pic is just too cute...sideways grins...nice photography!!! Looks forward to seeing the rest....
By the way, I started the book you gave me, love it!...think it'll be a great movie!

We're a very small family, so I'm always in awe of larger ones. You are incredibly lucky (but you know that!), and what a bunch of cuties you have in those grandkids! Swimming pools of any size are sure-fire entertainment centers, and provide so many photo ops!

we need to come visit that pool in your backyard! And I died laughing when I read that you call them arts & crap. I couldn't agree more.
