Snapshots of a Reunion

I caught a few minutes semi-alone (with 25ish people staying in the same house as me right now, that means there are still close to 10 floating around but it's "quiet"). I'm really enjoying my time with the extended family's what we've been up to the first day!

(Most pics taken by my younger siblings & cousins- they enjoy stealing my camera!)

Apparently, my parents' cat had kittens about 4 weeks ago. I only discovered this when I almost ran over a few of them! Needless to say, they are adorable and seem to be the main attraction lately. :)

I enjoyed a game of baseball with my almost 3 year old godson Aidan and then he "washed" my car with a squirt gun!

Most of the crew helped put up a huge tent we (hi bethany- random note from my cousin) borrowed from a nearby homestead. We had no clue what we were doing, but it's up now!

Most of all, we're just enjoying summer days in the countryside- sunrise to sunset!
