Eight is Enough

We had the pleasure last weekend of hosting our annual "Cousins Weekend." Four of our six nieces and nephews all fall in a row in the summer and we decided a few years ago that a fun way to celebrate all their birthdays would be to have them all come to our house for a fun-filled weekend. So our house was just a tad busier then usual with these eight hooligans running around! Honestly, they are all great, well-behaved kids and we had so much fun with them.

How many kids can fit on one small swing set? We got our money's worth on this thing just from how much it was played on this weekend!
We had a camp out complete with mountain pies, s'mores and lots of laughing.
We tried to wear them out on a good long hike, then refueled them at Chick-fil-a.
Legos were one of the favored activities by the boys and Haven received an education in Star Wars from her older cousins. (Seriously- we were walking through Target and she called out, "Look! There's Dark Maul!")
The Big Six trying their hands at some craftiness.

We also hit the playground, took in a movie at the park one night and went to the pool not once, but twice. We played some Wii, read lots of books and so enjoyed being together. A fun weekend all around!
