Days 14 &15: Cousins & Playground Fun!

One of my favorite memories growing up were visits with my cousins. We didn't see them very often--usually only at holidays and in the summer, but when we were together, there were many crazy but fun adventures to be had. I want the same for our girls. It is important for them to spend time with extended family, and our girls adore their cousins on both sides of the family.

On Saturday, the rainy weather was driving us all a little stir crazy, so we drove down to visit with Daniel's dad and brother and his family. Kate and Cora absolutely love their older cousins Alex (16), Kaileigh (9), and Zach (6).

On Sunday afternoon we ventured out to the newly renovated local playground, "Kids' Castle," for some family fun in the hot hot sun.

 The mega high slide was obviously a hair-raising experience

And...Monkey #2

We've had a great weekend. Kate registered for ballet and tap lessons and is super excited about starting. We played with the cousins, went to the playground, ate dinner at Steak & Shake (a nice treat), and Mommy started Couch25K. It's been fun but I'm wiped out! 

Did you have fun with your kids this weekend?

Blessings to you,
