Just Life

More Photo Fun.

My cousin Beth arrived (on a 5am flight from Boulder!) at our house just after noon. First order of business was a run to the lake – it was misting, so we didn’t stop for a photo. Then lunch and a lot of catching up (and a little bit of knitting) before we headed into town to have dinner with Katie and her family.

I had zero photos before we left and over twenty by the time we got home (not including a few that Betty shared with me – she’s really good about taking photos and I love that we have so many!). Most of them showed a blurry toddler and/or a blurry baby. It wasn’t hard to whittle them down a bit.

First, one without a little boy. This is Beth and me.

And you know all of these people. 
I wore that same scarf on Monday and Sam had it in his mouth then, too. 
Beth brought the boys new Legos. always a sure hit with Charlie.
And then our two best attempts at group photos – first with Rob
and then with Katie. Hands down this is my favorite of the whole evening!
love how Sam is watching Charlie ♥ (also the collar on Katie’s sweater … another teething ring)

 And all too soon it’s Friday. We’re hoping for a walk in the park before they have to leave this morning. It’s been a wonderful visit … but it’s gone too quickly. That’s a nice thing to say about family visiting, isn’t it?!

It’s also the last weekday of April and that would usually mean my last blog post of the month. But I’m planning to be back here this weekend with some information about Book Bingo. Stay tuned.

Happy Friday!

    What fun! It looks like you had a great mini-reunion. The boys are growing so quickly! (And thanks so much, Mary – in advance – for taking charge of Book Bingo this summer. Can't wait to hear all about it.) XO

    It does look like a really wonderful visit! (You should definitely visit Beth in Boulder some day; it's beautiful.) My first thought about Book Bingo was that it can't be time already, and my second was thank you for doing it! My summer wouldn't feel quite right without it. Looking forward …

    That is a nice way to think about family visits! And I am so excited for Book Bingo. I even got bookstore gift cards for my birthday so I am ready to get stocked up.

    Beautiful photos and I, too, love the last one the best. Glad your week was so filled with joy and fun times. I agree with Bonny – you should visit Boulder some time – it's a fun, fun place (my younger brother lives there). Excited for Book Bingo – my first!! Thanks for doing that.

    I love these photos! Sam and Charlie are precious! (I love the photo of Charlie holding on to Sam on the floor with Rob! That just melted my heart!)

    And Book Bingo!! I can't wait! xoxo
