More family fun!

I know I keep talking about the fun we had during the days surrounding Jesse & Danielle's wedding, but I'm not done yet! Here are some more pictures: Mia and BJ enjoying a relaxing minute in the hotel. Don't ya just LOVE that girl's smile?Our reunion with the Croshaws was great, of course, especially since we hadn't seen them in almost 9 months!!! Here's Grant getting a hello hug from Uncle Laren.The kids always seem to flock to Laren because, of course, he's hilarious!And here are all the cousins together! 10 in all!It wasn't long before the kids decided they just had to get their swimsuits on and party down at the hotel pool!Some of the adults decided the time was better spent chatting instead of swimming...but that didn't last very long. Pretty soon, this is what happened to Vanessa......and then Mindy.They couldn't get Jesse into the pool themselves, but Laren came to lend a hand and soon he was soaked, too. I stayed away through all of this craziness, holding desperately to Amelia and my camera in hopes that I would be spared. I think I took this one as they were plotting against me.Yes, they eventually lured my baby away from me, grabbed the camera out of my hand, and threw me in as well! No pictures, though, because, well...no camera! I'm pretty sure the hotel staff thought we were a bunch of nuts, but we all had a LOT of fun! I love this picture of my sisters and my baby...all soaking wet!Wish we could play together as a family every day, but we'll take what we can get!

My kids talk about the "pool with our clothes on" experience all the time! I think THAT will be their memory of the wedding. So much fun!

Oh man!! It has been so long! It is so great to see your beautiful family! What's hilarious - is that I saw the picture of the little boy in the life jacket in the pool and thought, " oh that's Joanna's brother he's adorable still..." And then I realized time hadn't stood still and that he is like what 20 years old now?? ACK! Is that your son in the pool?? Oh man I know it has been a long time but it is so wierd to see little babies grown up! Your brother was probably 4 the last time I saw him??? Oh man I am feeling quite old now!!! =)
