Great Weekend

We were silly at the Rainforest cafe. [At least Mason was! Grandpa would have been proud to see this one].
Mason even sat on the frog's lap!

We rode ponies -- [Maya, with Uncle Wissy and Daniel at her left]

Maya loved her pony. Having some purple on there makes all the difference.

We rode scooters! [What? What's Uncle Wissy doing on that scooter?!]

And we rode trains [and not just any train - this is a Thomas train!] Mason, Maya and Daniel all loved it.

We had a lovely weekend in Grapevine, with Chris, Tara and their boys, and Chris, Natalie and their 3 kiddoes. What always amazes me is how these kids just jump back into their friendships, even though it's been months since they've seen each other. They love doing things together -- riding trains, scooters, bikes, carousels, and they love playing the Wii, playing with the Thomas train set, building with Legos, and bouncing on the trampoline. I think mostly they just like being together.

We loved spending the time with family - -thanks, Chris and Tara, for the fun time! It was a great 4th!

That looks like such fun! Spending time with cousins is definitely the best.

Cousin time is the best- that's how it always was with my brother and I our cousins-We were only there in the summer, but it was if no time had passed when we'd come back- I hate that my kids don't have cousins!!!!! Grapevine looks like a ton of fun!

Playing with cousins is the BEST!! Seriously - my memories with mine are some of my favorite... even though we didn't see each other a ton - we still played together great! I can only imagine the joy it brings you, as their grandma, to watch them :) Sounds like you had a great trip!
