Very Happy Days

The piano got plenty of attention.
This hostess couldn't be any happier.
Nerf War!
Aaron's giant birthday cupcake.
Hide n Seek!
Designing their shirts.

I could fill pages with memories of our time with Uncle Garth, Auntie Angel, Kaeleigh, Micah, & Lily...but I think these photos speak volumes. Needless to say we all had the time of our lives exploring Boston, picnicking in Plymouth, beach combing on the Cape, celebrating Aaron's birthday together at a British Pub (all 10 of us!), watching the kids (and adults) risk life and limb sledding down a bobsled run (made by the Daddy's of course!), snowshoeing (courtesy of my resourceful brother), crafting (puffy paint shirts from Aunt Angel, duct tape artwork & jewelry, etc.), and most of all just relaxing and soaking up our short time together. The house was a disaster and I loved every minute of it!

Lily & Zibby at the end of the week...this is how we all felt!
Getting ready to visit the American Girl Doll Store.
Micah & Ben...nonstop sledding, nerf wars, legos, & exploring together.
I love that Garth wrote this in the sand while we were all searching for sea glass on the Cape.
Ice Cream at Spruce Pond just down the road from our house in Franklin.

Angel came up with this design for earrings out of Duct tape...isn't she so creative!
And Garth left me a duct tape treasure in my African Violet...can you spot it?
Pancake morning...everyone agrees, Aaron makes the best & Uncle Garth needs a "Mantula".
Our treasures with their treasures.
The Dunn's in Beantown.
The only photo I could get of all six together!

Garth & Kaeleigh in the homemade snowshoes.
