Cousin Love

I babysat my brother's kids last night while he went to a meeting for an internship (his wife is currently in cosmetology school at night) and boy, did we have fun! Luke was right at home with Jakob and Joshy digging in the dirt in the garden and pushing Tonka trucks around. Bella and Drew played together in the Pack-n-Play and he only tried to tackle her once or twice! Then it was bed time and it actually worked out pretty well...Bella slept in Drew's crib, and we set up another pack-n-play in the same room for Luke. Drew slept in my room, and it all worked out really well. Then this morning after I got home from walking, we went over to the pool and had some fun swimming! There was a water aerobics class going on when we got there, and when the ladies finished and came over to exit the pool right where we were in the kiddie area, they all kept saying, "Wow, what a beautiful family you have!" And my brother and I just kind of laughed because they must have thought that we were married and all those kids were ours! It was funny! The kids had so much fun and I love it when my kids are able to spend time with cousins...I think it's so important for them to build those relationships with their family. My brother made a comment to me about how when he was younger he never imagined that someday we'd have kids that were the same ages...WHODATHUNKIT???? They are all so cute and sweet and all have such fun personalities!

Your boys remind me so much of your little brothers. Well, I guess they are not so little anymore. Such cute kids.

Wow, what a cute bunch of kids! Thanks so much for watching the kids the other day. We really appreciate it and I know James had a lot of fun hanging out (and I had fun having a little alone time).

I love looking at all of the little toes in that group picture...they are all kind of lined up. So great!
