On Sunday the 23rd, we got together with all the younger B family cousins for some time at the park, a birthday celebration for SJ, and a gift exchange.
Thomas loved the spring rocking motorcycle!
Initially Ellie wasn't feeling so well on this day, but after a little time at the park, she perked back up and enjoyed the day with her cousins!
Uncle Thomas always plans fun games! This time they had a 3-legged race.
I think Mary Clare and Caleb won.
They played some elaborate game of Telephone.
And then it was Flag Football with the Dads!
After the park, we went back to Aunt Mary and Uncle Stuart's house for food and fun! We actually stayed in their lovely garage apartment for most of our trip; it was great! Thank you, Mary!
My camera needs a new lens hood...
His first Nerf...
I think this is my favorite photo from our trip. It totally captures the fun times of big family get-togethers!
Mary Clare sewed a patchwork pillow for her grandmother with initials of each cousin and a symbol embroidered on the squares!
Taking any sort of family photo with young boys is nearly impossible.
We enjoyed their new kitchen!
And Thomas was the first to crash (ended up being sick the next day)...
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
