Some of my favorite memories as a child include my cousins. We took vacations together, celebrated holidays together and spent many memorable summers together. I love that our parents tried so hard to ensure a close relationship with our family. Throughout the years it has become harder and harder for all of us to get together. We all have our own families now or have moved off (becoming doctors or engineers in the Marshal Islands). We have tried to have a family reunion once a year and get everyone together; however, that is also difficult to get everyone's schedules to align.
This past weekend we were able to get together with my Aunt Karla, Uncle Gary and my cousins LaDonna, Adam, James Ryan and his beautiful wife Codi and there two adorable daughters. It was certainly an adventure with 7 kids ages 4 and under. It was so good to see them all and to watch our children play together just like we did.

A little difficult to get all 7 kids in one picture, but I think it turned out great. Take note of Paxton sporting a Mardi Gras necklace, a machine gun, baby Jesus and Elmo shoes. HAHA that kid cracks me up. Sweet little Maddy is trying to pick the flowers off of Harper's pillow. So sweet.

The kids table. Oh if everyone could march to the beat of Paxton's drum!! HAHA.

It is amazing what a difference a year makes! The kiddos were all just babies here last summer and this time we added 3 more to the mix!! Amazing!
