Anyway, I'll do my best!
A few weeks ago the four kids and I (do I really have four now?! When did that happen?!) headed to my Aunt and Uncle's house in Michigan.
With four kids.
By myself. 333 miles.
Unfortunately I haven't managed to finish their gifts yet, but as Jenny isn't due till October, I figure I've got a bit of time.
My Auntie Erna and Uncle Gary also came to celebrate.
My kids had so. much. fun.
second cousins to play with,
and adults to terrorize.
Thankfully the adults found ways to defend themselves.
The kids quickly found ways to circumvent this defense . . .
And then of course since things weren't crazy enough, my Uncle Paul decided that it would be a good idea to equip all the kids with long bamboo poles that they could use to whack each other.
Every time we visit, something gets broken, and this time was no exception. A poor old rhinoceros needed rhinoplasty after his horn was snapped.
No, not him, him.
His horn may or may not have been involved in a miniature sword fight. Explanations have been fuzzy as to exactly how the rhinoceros was harmed.
All in all, it was a wonderful vacation.
I had too many pictures to blog, so I uploaded them to a slideshow if you'd like to see more. If you're viewing this post through facebook or email, you'll need to click here to see the original post and slideshow.
