On the left, my sister, the "birthday girl". On the right, her daughter, Erin.
My mom, myself (in the background) and two of my sisters.
My youngest sister (17 years younger than I am) and her husband.
Their two daughters, two of my nieces. I have watched them grow up. That's why we moved to Kentucky.
Their third daughter (on the left) and her cousin Emma, who is Erin's daughter. They love getting together. My niece and my great-niece.
Emma's little brother Parker, thumb wrestling with Uncle Mike (my husband).
Erin's two boys LOVE their Uncle Mike!
Jackson and his dad.
Emma, braiding her mom's hair (sorry Emma is blurry, I guess she was moving).
Emma is a bit clearer here, but Erin's face is partly hidden (it's not easy taking candid photos).
While the boys were thumb wrestling with Uncle Mike, Sarah was arm wrestling with her dad.
Molly, laughing with her Mom.
Cousins, having fun together...
After dinner, it was time for ICE CREAM for all the kids...
As we were leaving, I noticed this drawing that Jackson had made. I asked him, "what is it?" Jackson: "a robot". I asked, "What's the thing on the left?". Jackson: "the remote control". Kids are amazing!
