Things are just better when cousins are around. New adventures arise. Toys that have been sitting on the shelf collecting dust become the weeks fad. You get to show off all your new tricks and laughter is mandatory.
We made a day trip yesterday to Seattle to snag our nephew, Kaden, for the week. The girls hadn't seen him since Christmas so some time together was long over due. We met up at Gas Works Park and headed home in the later afternoon. There was a lot of laughter in our swagger wagon on the way home and I learned more about dinosaurs than I have ever needed to know. :)
The kiddos were up with the birds this morning and have been playing hard ever since. It started out with a camping adventure. Props included backpacks, water guns, and a lot of talk about dinosaurs and baby turtles. From there they went outside and have been splish splashing ever since.
Life is good for these 2 six year olds, 1 4 year old, and one baby trying to keep up with all the adventure.
