Cousins

We spent a lot of time with our cousins. We only get to see my sisters and their children once a year. And normally it's in the winter time so we don't get to do much outdoor playing. My oldest sister lives WAY up at the top of this foothill. It makes me so nervous when we drive up there. My hands get all sweaty and........oh goodness, it's just scary. And this isn't even the top of the "foothill" where she lives. This is just coming down the street. Can you imagine going down that hill with SNOW??? She says it's not a big deal but it seems scary to me. But that is coming from a girl who doesn't see any hills where she lives. Speaking of good drivers...... My oldest sister has five children. They are all so much fun. We played outside and then we played Rock Band. Those kids are awesome rockers. We played just about every day. This is my big sister with her baby. I hadn't seen her youngest yet. She is just too cute. She looks like a little porcelain doll. I wanted to take her home. The boys did boy stuff. They even had a few scuffles. Brought on by my rough Cowpoke. Mean little booger. But in the end they were good buds. Cowpokette was obsessed with her "baby" cousin. Now her baby cousin wasn't too keen on her. Actually she was pretty scared of Cowpokette. They are only a few months apart and Cowpokette wanted treat her like one of her baby dolls. They all played really well together. Look at those two playing badminton. After some playtime outside and some rock band. We decided to try to go swimming. It wasn't too warm out. Maybe just 70 degrees. But we tried it anyway. It was pretty chilly and we only stayed in the water for about 30 minutes. All the kids' lips were turning purple! My little fish. Cowpokette really didn't want me to help her at all. She would have rather had me let her go on her own. My niece is one awesome flipper! Good form, I give her a 10! And last but not least a few shots of Cowpokette's favorite cousin. She is just too cute. It was so much fun being able to play with my big sister and all her kids. I wish we lived closer so we could play more often.

Ugh! Why can't I live in a place that's that green and only 70 degrees? Sooooo jealous.

Beautiful photos Andrea of beautiful people. I got to tell you though, that is not a hill. Come visit us, we've got hills.

Ah,cousins! How great they could all be together. That little girl is precious--cute curls. Looks like you made up for lost time with those pretty shots.

What fantastic pictures! Looks like you had a wonderful time! I don't think I would like that hill either!

THose are the cutest kids I have ever seen!! :) And to all those that wished they lived here, it is 95 now and it was a fluke that it was in the 60's and 70's. Way too hot for all of us. We go to the pool and sweat just sitting in those plastic chairs.

Karen said...

First of all, I'm always astounded at your photo quality. Wow.

And second, please forgive me as I laugh hysterically at you freaking over foothills and snow. Southern flatlanders crack me up. ;)
