David's sister lives in North Carolina. We don't get to see her family often, maybe once a year. Alisa had a conference in Phoenix last weekend. She brought her kids with her and we brought the kids to our house for the weekend while she learned something about physical therapy.
That means we had 5 kids ages 3, 4, 4, 7 and 9. Holy smokes. The noise was off the charts, and so was the fun.
Ben and Emily were so excited for David to get home with their cousins. They were standing at the door waiting.
There was so getting reaquainted.
Then, it was no holds bar chaos! The kids all had a blast.
They tried to sleep together. Emily ended up in her own room at some point because she couldn't sleep.
The mornings looked like this:
We went swimming several times to try to burn off energy. It didn't work. They make more. I don't know where it comes from, but these 5 kids had loads of energy.
There was matching pajamas:
And matching Buzz Lightyear wings:
I had great plans of getting tons of photos of the 5 of them for Grammie Gwynne. It just didn't happen. They would never sit still.
The days went much too quickly. It was a great visit, and I'm glad my kids get to grow up with such great cousins.
