Dean's family was here during the month of July and into August.
Pam arrived first with the boys....passing through on the way to Houston.
The weather didn't cooperate so we stayed close to home....but the kids still managed to have fun.
Here the boys are with Ripstick Boy....AWWWWW......they love their big cousin!
During a heated game of basketball, we had one injury....a bee sting!
But the patient was a brave boy and made a full recovery.
Then, Dean's grandmother, Lulu came for her annual visit.
She was especially fond of the s'mores I made one afternoon.
and when I say 'fond' I really mean it....she ate THREE!
Then Dean's other sister Marla came through with her family.
We took the 2 younger kids to the neighborhood playground...
they played on the slides...
and in the swings....
...of course, Curly Girl had to go!
We all went out to eat...before they hit the road.
Here, the three 'big kids' are doing some catching up...and LOTS of eating...
Dean's mom and other sister Laurie came to visit too.......but I didn't get any pictures of them....maybe next year!
