Rose Garden and Backyard Fun

Yesterday we got to spend some time with Uncle Greg and Auntie Shaina. We went to the Rose Garden for a picnic, which was a beautiful setting as always. Mostly though, we were just happy to be together.

P1180844Simon had a good time too, although you can’t tell it from any of the pictures. He was a little upset that we made him stay with us rather than run off wherever his desire took him.

P1180856When we got back to my parents’ house, Simon took a nap, and then we decided to go play outside in the backyard. Elias loves the little pool. A bunch of us waded or got in the pool with him. Some of the men sat out in the shade.
