Every year a day or two after my children get out of school their cousins arrive from Colorado. It is a year long much awaited event for all. The first family arrived on Tuesday night and of course we were at my in-laws when they got there. Both of my kids slept over so they wouldn't miss a minute yesterday. Despite the off and on rain, they played hard all day ... bike riding, fishing, catching frogs and turtles, etc. It is such a beautiful thing to watch them fall right back into things like they have never been apart. The second family should arrive next week. There are four adults and six kids visiting. We will spend just about every minute of the next four weeks with all of them. (work and everything for me pretty much gets put on hold but that's okay). As the time goes on, I will post some pictures. It's 8:00 a.m and my son is already bugging me to get in the car to go down there so ... I'm off to get ready for my day and head out. Happy Thursday.

















Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for Pink Friday ...

How exciting for you and your family to gather like this each year. I don't blame you for wanting to spend every moment with them. enjoy your time together as it goes by so quickly. Love the picture of the little ballet shoes. Very pretty.
