All in the Family

So I have been a little MIA this week.

Its not because I haven't missed all of you.

Its not because I have been too busy cleaning toilets and doing dishes. Although, Lord knows I NEED to be doing that.

Its not because I have been otherwise detained in potty training my darling almost-two-year-old. Nope, not likely.

Its not because we left a few days early for our much coveted, much anticipated vacay.

And it is DEFINITELY not because I am pregnant again - which caused my previous leave of absence. You know, because of the crazy meltdown I had over the thought of raising THREE BABIES. Nope, that didn't happen. At least I don't think I am....

No, no, no, I am not with child, not cleaning, not vacationing, and not potty-training. Nope. But my kid intake did grow a little bit this week...
It was a case of the cousin invasion. Uncle Josh and Aunt Kristy spent seven relaxing days in Mexico soaking up the sun and getting some much needed R&R. We however, got the privilege of hosting their three little munchkins.

I am not going to lie. It was a little crazy at times. Morgan, the oldest, is quite the little helper, and Mimi and I put her to work often. Bless her heart. Mason, the only walking boy, got sick mid week, which added a little more craziness to the mix. Addie, the brunette in the bunch, had a case of the sniffles, but mostly played the role of high-heel wearing, baby-doll toting, and keeping Peyton in-line.

They are all three precious, and my children adore them.

It was, however, a little nuts, which is probably why I haven't blogged in a few days. Not to mention, I only snapped like three pictures all week long.

I did capture one outing though. The splash park.

Silly girls.

This was an all-girl outing because, as previously mentioned, Mason was a little under the weather on this day, and Stone, well, he was napping....

We did have it all to ourselves though. Which is probably the ONLY reason i thought to whip out the camera.

We did do some other fun things though, I swear. The kids went to a dinosaur museum, the park, swimming at the pool, church, sno-cone stand, Chick-fil-A, multiple trips to the grocery store, the movies, and a slew of other Mimi-approved activities.
Wouldn't have traded this past week for the world. My kiddos ADORE their cousins and were sad to see them go. I am hoping I get many more times to take care of these precious six.
With that said...
I. Need. A. Vacation.

I'm just now seeing this...YAY for cousins! Even though it gets totally crazy when they are all together, I always feel so, so blessed that these kids have each other in their lives. I love the idea of seeing them grow up together!

Thanks a million trillion for helping out with them. We owe ya!
