This past weekend, we visited my stepson and his wife and family. They are a 12 hour drive or a 90 minute flight away. Dear hubby drove so that we would have a vehicle (and because he doesn't like flying) and the boys and I flew, along with hubby's sister and mom (good traveling companions). Stepson and wife have six little ones (ages 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, and 10), and it was a wonderful chaos of kids from the time we got there until the time we left.
I think I took over 200 pictures this weekend. Here are some that would make it into my "top 10".
The master grillers - father and son... or grandpa and dad.. depending on your perspective.
The uncles with their oldest nephew!
Here's nephew #2 (# 5 of the whole crew) with some items from his stocking.
Niece #1. What a trip!
A little scary when 7 year old girls and 14 year old boys share the same style in footwear!
Niece #2 with Kid #1, looking at the Bible that #6 got for his birthday.
Niece # 3 enjoying birthday festivities.
Rounding out the half-dozen...the birthday boy!
Guys on the couch!
They love their uncles!
It was happy chaos!
Once again, I must say that I don't find Blogger's picture adding capabilities very user friendly. This page has been 3 days in the making. The first time the pictures wouldn't load. It was late, and I went to bed. The next time, I got all of the pictures uploaded, and then after adding two to the blog, clicked on *something* and all the uploaded pictures vanished. I *know* uploaded pictures are saved on Picassa, so I went there. Sure enough, my pictures were there, but I couldn't find a simple way to transfer them from Picassa to Blogger. So...tonight, I uploaded them all again, and here they are (maybe a few more than 10)!
