So, I must hurry and post about our fun trip to KC last weekend as we are yet again heading there this weekend for more family fun.
Our trip was originally planned around my favorite cousin, Jared & his family coming into town. However, since they bailed on the trip last minute, he is no longer my favorite cousin. ;-) So, to make him jealous, we went on without him and had lots of fun anyway!
We were lucky enough to pick up Grandma Bell on our way through Joplin so she could help tend to Addison and her needs while we drove. A 3+ hour drive isn't fun for a toddler who must move constantly. Despite her needs, she did fairly good on our trip but we were still very excited to finally get there and play with cousins and aunts and uncles.
Unfortunately, Uncle Kendall was on a business trip so we didn't get to see him. But we did get to help Michelle juggle three kids in his absence. It was part of our reason for going on our random KC trip.
This was by far Addison's favorite thing to do. Sit and read/babble to anyone who was listening. The scores of toys laying around never drew her in. There was way too much reading to get done apparently!
Two more reasons we came to KC to play. Our newest nephews/cousins: Garrett & Rex. This was my first official meet & greet with little Rex. Both are soooo adorable.
Heading to the pool for a swim. I don't think Grandma could have packed them in any tighter than this!
Movie night with the cousins. We all enjoyed laughing while watching "Bedtime Stories"...kids and adults both!
Watching cartoons with the cousins. It gave us a nice little reprieve from all of our hard work.
