Reunited...and it feels so gooooooood!

we've been waiting a long time for this and it was SOOOO nice to have aunt colleen, uncle josh, lilah and cj here!

first stop...the grocery store.
now...this is the way to shop!
 a little cousin lovin'

 i got my snuggles in with the baby ladies.
 the girls love to swing, so we headed up to the park.  roman likes it too, but the chains are so cold on his hands!
 uncle josh was on pushing duty

 i'm everybody watching?
 here i come!
 ...and the dismount!  so graceful.
nice, uncle josh!
 peek a boo...i see you!
 we also took a golf cart ride to feed the ducks.

 and the girls got to be artsy and color the sidewalk.
 can you imagine how many crumbs were in our bed after this?  haha
 oh hey...cj was here too...
 on saturday, we headed to lawton stables for the kiddos to take a pony ride.  when we pulled into the parking lot, lilah started neighing like a horse.  girlfriend was excited.  for the horses.  for the helmet, notsomuch.
 ahhh, much better. 
 she was so fun to watch.  she was all smiles and as you can see, even waved for mommy and aunt stacie!

 roman liked it too!

 gianna took one lap around, crying the whole way...hence the reason why we have no pictures or video.  it was pitiful.  she liked to look at them from a distance, but did not like to get too close.
 another lazy morning.  aunt colleen was actually reading the girls a book.
 almost party time.  this is a blurry pic, but mostly because the kids wouldn't stop moving. 
 lilah loved the little basketball. 
 this picture cracks me up!
 the baby ladies, just chillin' on the counter, eating bananas.
 we had a little cake for gianna at the party

 it took her a little bit, but once she blew the candle out once, she wanted to do it over and over!

 and then a big lick!

 this is a happy face if i've ever seen one!
 then, the kids bobbed for apples.  roman was so excited for this part.  he got soaked!
 reese was really good at it too!
 roman was helping gianna put on her new pink cowgirl boots from mommom.  so adorable.
 the girls were winding down from a crazy party full of loud kids and adults. 
 uncle josh wanted to read them a story.
 it lasted about 2 pages...maybe only 1...
 and then this happened. 

i'm so grateful to my family for making the long trip down to sc to see us. they do it every year and i'm just so appreciative. we have fun doing not much of anything, just being together and enjoying each other's company. i love seeing the kids play together and get to give hugs.  hugging's my favorite.  thanks guys!!
