Well, the post is belated but the sentiment remains the same. We had the happy occasion to celebrate Labor Day Weekend at Minnie and Pop-Pop's house with much loved and anticipated members of our extended family--aunts, great-aunts and great-uncles, cousins, cousins-in-law, and many, many cousins-once removed. The Wog and The Doodle were entirely delighted by this family time, and not a tear was shed until it was time to say "goodbye"--a huge accomplishment considering the # of kids in attendance! In addition to pool time, delicious food, costume changes and Miss Mary Mackage, a few amazing magic tricks were even performed by Peter!
Poolside with popsicles:
(Apparently, Aunt Mary Beth wants YOU!)
"Painting" the pool and surrounding cabana kept us busy when we were young, and times have not changed:
The Doodle thoughtfully shared his apple with his sweet adorable cousin, Liam:
And then Liam got one of his own!
Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack...
...all dressed in black, black, black!
And at play:
Cousins AND three weeks apart!
The best group photo I could get. If anyone got a better one, send it my way!
