Josh asked some time ago if we would watch their kids for them while they took a week to celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary.
We decided it would be a perfect time to have a Cousins' Week!
Before they left, we had a day together and we celebrated Claire's birthday early. Josh's wouldn't be able to return in June.
What's a party without balloons, right?
We had some in the pantry and Hannah looked on-line how to make shapes.
She made this beautiful flower and several dogs too!

The next day, Al was up by 4:15 am to drive Josh and Staci to the airport. Josh and Staci flew to Zoetry Villa Rolandi Isla Mujeres Cancun. (that is a mouthful!)
And while they were having fun, we had our own week of fun with all 5 grandchildren!
