The girls have many, many cousins - close to, if not more than, 30 first cousins to start. And now their older cousins are marrying and adding to the family. (We refer to them all as cousins.) At family parties and events, there are little kids and babies, who will soon be little kids, for the girls to play and socialize with. They absolutely love it.
About a month ago, we enjoyed a weekend full of family visits and parties. The girls' cousins, Clive and Charlie, were visiting from Virginia and even though they are boys, the girls love hanging out with them.
This was Friday morning.
Saturday afternoon, my brother-in-law and sister-in-law hosted a pool party.
Anna was holding this basket while Charlie tossed a small basketball into it. She was having a blast and thought that it was hysterical that whenever she put the basket down, Charlie would hand it back to her and say, "Hoop. Hoop."
I love this series of photos of Emily and Baby Patrick.
And Baby Patrick is no longer a baby. Sunday was his big first birthday party.
Those are Allie's hands behind him. Watch out!
