Cousin Fun

Last week, we had a visitor. Cousin A stayed for a week while FRN went on her honeymoon. (Hope you had a great time! I know you didn't get eaten by bears, and I have to say, I'm grateful that you didn't!) I wondered how the week would go: Would the kids get tired of one another? Would we find enough to do? Just how fatigued would I be at the end of the week?

Well, I have to say that having one more child isn't that much more work when you already have five. (Oops, I mean four. I have four kids and that one really big kid.) However, last night, I went to bed at 8:30 p.m. So that's saying something.

But I thought I'd share a bit of the fun we had last week. I'm glad the kids had the chance to experience some cousin time.

Sweet old-fashioned faces.

Never let A drive the truck. She's got three casualties and a passenger trying to get out.
