While some traveled to far away places during Spring Break, Braden and I made a day trip to Rogers to play with "the cousins" It's been since Labor Day that we were all together, and even then we were missing Emmery and Baby Albert. On this trip we were missing Mason.
This is the first time we've seen Emmery in a long time and it was nice to spend some time with her. She is a very serious little girl, and the smile below was the first and only all day. We only got to see it here because her big sister, Hannah was tickling her.
Even after not seeing me for many months, she warmed up immediately and was very enamored with Braden and even wanted to ride home with us!
Chloe was not on Spring Break, but we got was home from school with an ear infection. This was following her doctor appointment and she was in tears soon after this picture was taken. The big comparison between these three was missing teeth; how many, which ones, and did the tooth fairy come and how much did she bring.
Here is "the boy" he is the only boy between Chelsea and Sarah. These are Sarah's "angels" Hannah (5 in April), Baby Albert (1 in May), Emmery (4 next week)
This is the spit fire, Brooke. As you can see she got a recent hair cut from big sis, Chloe.
Emmery crashed in the car on our way out to Chelsea's house and we were happy to let her sleep while we played outside.
Cousins Hannah and Brooke are best buds, especially since they are very close in age, Brooke will turn 5 in November.
We tried several times throughout the day to get a good group shot, as you can imagine there were always tears, or closed eyes, or someone looking away from the camera, or someone wandering off. . .here is one of our attempts. Hannah (Sarah), Brooke (Chelsea), Emmery (Sarah), Amiee (Chelsea) not sure where Braden and Chloe were.
Because it had been so long, I tried to get a lot of pics of Emmery. This was after dinner and right before we left for home.
There was a field right beside Chelsea's house that we were able to play a little baseball in. Apparently there are sometimes horses in this field so we had to watch our step. Braden was the batter, Granny was the catcher, I was the pitcher and the little girls loved being in the outfield and trying to tag Braden out.
