Family Fun!

Last week my sister and her family were visiting from Southern Oregon.
We don't get to see each other near as often as I'd like,
so we try to pack in as much as we can in the time we do have together.
In the four days they were here we went shopping,
spent the day at Enchanted Forest, celebrated birthdays,
and got in some visit time.

Probably the most fun for the kiddos was our trip to Enchanted Forest.
And, boy, did we have a group!
My sister and her family, the girls and I, Mom and Dad,
My other sister, her two older kids, and two of their friends,
my brother and his daughter,
PLUS my dear friend, her husband, and their four children.

If you lost count, that's nine adults and fourteen children.
1-16 year old
1-15 year old
1-12 year old
1-11 year old
2-7 year olds
1-6 year old
1-5 year old
1-4 year old
1-3 year old
1-2 year old
2-1 year olds
1- {almost} 7 month old
What fun we had!
{Warning: Get ready for picture overload}

A quick shot in front of the castle wall.

I think Sierra and Kuaile were racing each other. Fierce competition, huh?

Bumper Boat Fun!

Jaymes had so much fun going through the rabbit hole.

Gramps and my niece, Sonoma.
{Oh how I love this picture. In case you can't get a sense from the photo alone, my dad LOVES
children. He is so good with all of the grandchildren. Their eyes light up when Gramps is in the room.}

Such a great day.

Of course, those four days went by way too quickly.

And I didn't get near the visit time with my sis that I'd wanted.

But, you gotta look at the bright side, right?

I love having the WHOLE family together!

{And, yes, Kam was there, though I didn't get one photo of her!

She was contentedly snuggled in the Ergo the entire time.}

Hope y'all had an equally blessed week!
