"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things."

We had lots of family visiting this week. Brandon's Mom and sisters and their kids came to stay and play. We had tons of fun and commotion. The kids have been in 7th heaven playing with cousins day and night. (Boy, are they in for a rude awakening Monday morning when the rules, chores, and bedtimes return.)

Brandon's Mom and his sister, Kendra came from Washington. Sharee and Case came all the way from Colorado to stay. We don't get to see them very often, so it was a real treat. The girls made soap, and the kids played and played and played. We got to know Case a little better. He was still a baby the last time we saw him.

Brandon tried his best to earn the title "Favorite Uncle". Case was extremely cautious at first, but warmed up to him by the end of the week. Bribery works wonders.

We went to the "jumping place" with all the kids. Always a favorite.

Melissa and kids came one day to hang out. Everyone played Bacce Ball in the yard, ran through the sprinklers, rode bikes, and played with Rocket. We're so glad to finally have some nice weather.

Jenna stayed an extra few days. I think we might keep her.

It was a fun-filled week!

You got some great pictures of Case and do a much better job at taking pictures of everyone. I always forget to include everyone! We had a great time and Case is glad to be home with his daddy but is going through some major cousin withdrawals! He loved to be outside so much and play with his cousins. I'm sure he will remember you all now for when we see you in November!
