Fun Family Times

We’ve been having a blast this week hanging out with our cousins, Auntie, and Grandpa from out of town. Elias and Simon absolutely adore their cousins, and each minute of play time together is precious.

On Wednesday, we met at the park to play on the playground and in the fountains. Although Elias and Simon didn’t run through the fountains in glee by any means, they did have a good time. Most of the time they just stood back and watched, but they did enjoy the water for a bit in order to cool off.

P1180802On Thursday we had more of a relaxing day. Everyone came over to play in our backyard all day. I set up the water table and the sprinkler and the kiddos had a lot of fun. I have to admit it has been a lot of years since I have run through a sprinkler and it was quite exhilarating. Here are Sonya and Elias posing during their fun afternoon.
