We had so much fun at Ammon and Kirsten's house!!! You guys thanks sooooo much for putting up with us, for helping us have an unforgetable time, feeding us....the list goes on and on....We love spending time with you guys!! I'm glad we had as much time as we did and got to do so many fun things, except there is just so much more to do!! Columbus is such a fun place!!!
COSI ( Center of Science and Industry) There was a Big Machines section out back where there were tons of "Big Machines". The kids got to opporate them, climb on them...they thought it was the coolest thing ever. Especially when you can do it with your cousins!!
Columbus Clippers Baseball Game
Oh I love my sisters!! Kirsten and Whitney hold a special place in my heart!!! It would have been wonderful if ALL of my sisters could have been there, but I loved every minute with these two!!! I love you Kirsten and Whitney!!!!
Isn't LeGrand the Cutest Daddy ever!?!?! I love it!!!
Look at these 2 cute couples!!!
Now that is True Beauty!!! Of course I'm talking about the one of me and Whitney, Just kidding!!
Wednesday when I came back from EFY to be with the Kiddos and help Kirsten and Whitney we went to these water fountians. We had a blast, the kids couldn't get enough. It felt so good to be with them again. EFY is fun, but I miss my kiddos when I'm gone!!
While LeGrand and I were at EFY Kirsten did so many fun things with the kids.... They went Fishing, Kirsten had heard about this great club that once a year brings 100 free fishing poles on a first come/first serve basis and they decided to try it out. It was fabulous!! The men from this organization were SO helpful with the kids. They each helped out the seven children learn how to fish, cast, bait and were so patient. All the kids got a pole and almost all of them caught one or more fish. Sophie and Brynlee caught 9 between them! So fun! Then, when we got back, we did a family home evening there again, talking about being "Fishers of Men". The kids loved it.
The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium
Kirsten, Paul and Whitney took the kids to the zoo while LeGrand and I were at EFY!!! It looks like they had fun!! You guys are amazing!!! Thank you so much for watching Brayden, Adelyn and Sophie!!! They loved it!!!
Saying Goodbye to Paul
Major Cousin Bonding Time!
The kids LOVED being together and did so well for TWO WEEKS of being by each other's sides every waking moment. We are lucky to have such good kids who share such a deep friendship.
This is my very favorite picture. Last year we started this tradition and I hope we can keep it up. Every year after July 15 (Brynlee's birthday) and before August 29 (Hailey's birthday-when she and Sophie then turn the same age) these 8 cousins stairstep each other exactly. We noticed this last year and even with the birth of Kolby in December, it still followed suit! While this mass production!!! LOL!! of kids probably won't continue this quickly, it will be fun to see them change each year that we can get together to do this and see how many more cousins join this crew!
