Fun Visitors

Our sweet sister-in-law, nephew, and new baby niece came to visit us for 4 days! We had so much fun visiting with them. Our newphew Boone went to work with Casey every morning riding horses and helping out. The girls shopped a little and enjoyed watching the kids play. We always have too many things to do and didn't get everything we wanted accomplished, but that's just a good reason for them to come again.
Playing in the little pool and with toys in the garage (the wind was blowing sooo hard outside that day)

And riding the steer!

Cousins - Avery, 23 mo., Bella 7 weeks, Boone 4 yr.
The sweet little Bella was so good the whole week.
Yes, Avery tried out every single one of Bella's baby gear items from this bouncy seat to the carseat, pacifier, bottle (yuck), and even shoes. She was so disappointed when the shoes wouldn't fit. She insisted that I hold her like an infant and hold her sippy cup for her while she drank it when she saw Angela feeding Bella. How funny!

Avery started off slow at the baby pool by pouring water in and out of the pool.Avery and Boone were great swimmers at the pool.
She did so good with the floaties on kicking her feet and kinda floating on her tummy. She loved the pool and never complained about wearing the floaties. We finally ventured into the bigger pool and Avery was fearless (I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing). She floated around with me right there, but not afraid for me to let go. Apparently she had total faith in those little floats on her arms. I see us making many more trips to the pool this summer!
