More of the cousins!

Our daughter-in-law was going to Colorado with friends 
for a few days and since they drive right by our house on the way, 
I asked her if she'd want to bring the kids and drop them off. 

I had meant to get a photo of us with all our grandchildren when we had Cousins' Week and FORGOT!  So this was a great time to do it!

We went to the older cousins' swim meet in Abilene.

 The kids played alot!

We went on a walk around the lake

 and celebrated my birthday - a big surprise to me!

While these two had me downstairs treating me to a massage, upstairs they were decorating!

The kids made me a book - "Things We Love About Nana"
I was not able to read it without crying so Emeri read it. 

Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.  Isaiah 46:4    
God has faithfully carried us again and again!

We put up the pool outside under the willow tree

the slip n slide was on it's last leg

photo bomb!

It wasn't always "fun" - there were a few times of tears, maybe even a little fighting and some "talks" from Nana, but for the most part, it was a good time!  Soon the cousins won't be 6 hours apart, but almost twice that!
Sad for all.

This just looks like LOADS of fun! And those sweet grandkids making that book for you - PRICELESS! (I would have cried, too!)
