We Are Family

There is nothing like a bunch of cousins spending the weekend together: Jumping on the trampoline, having picnics, going to the park, coloring with sidewalk chalk, eating good food, celebrating a birthday, playing Guitar Hero, and one of Adelyn's favorites...having her picture taken.

I asked Kevin what the highlight of the weekend was for him. He said it was between giving Elliot a haircut (just because) or "The Guitar Hero Showdown" (if only Aidan could dance like his Aunt Juli) or being snapped at when he offered to hold Jodi's camera!

It was a fun weekend! We just hope we don't have to wait too long to get together again.

P.S. Still no penny!

Not famous yet.

This summer Tuacahn is performing the musical Annie. The beginning of February, Morgan auditioned for a part. She got a call back and was thrilled to go for a second audition. She loves to perform. I think it is obvious what parent she gets that from! She has been patiently waiting for the last month to hear if she got a part. This evening we got an email saying that she didn’t get a part. Needless to say, she went to bed with red swollen eyes tonight.

Chalk art

We were admiring the girls sidewalk art today and noticed Adelyn had written her name all over the patio. We don't know who is more proud her or us!

She did take a break for a minute to draw this bus. Oh, I mean bis.

We had to laugh when we noticed the warning by the ladder to the trampoline. The girls love to jump, but every spring they refuse...when the bees (and pollen) come out! Funny girls!

PENNY UPDATE: Still no penny. That is right, every time she has pooped in the last two and a half weeks we have looked for the penny without success. It is great. According to her it is already out. A couple days ago, we were checking out at the grocery store and she looked down on the ground by her feet and there was a penny. She was so excited and told us that her penny came out. If only it were true!
