Fun Weekend in the Sun!

Saturday morning we picked up our nieces and headed down to Illinois to my aunt and uncle's!  They have an awesome in-ground pool and a TON of fun floaties and toys!

We got there at 11:00 and the girls wanted to get right in the pool!  We swam until about 1:00 and then got out for a lunch break and right back in the pool.

I took the day off from taking pictures,  but my aunt got some for us!  All four kids loved the water.  Kase sat and floated around and loved every second of it.  Kyla liked the water too, but I think she loved their dog the most!  And Emma and Gianna are both little fish!

She takes after her Mama with her love of watermelon!
We're getting him ready for football season.  "What do the Packers do?  TOUCHDOWN!"
We left for home around 4:00 and we had a van full of sleepy kids!

Saturday night the girls played in the sand box.

Kase watched :)

After we gave all four kids baths, got them in their PJ's, put a movie in, popped some popcorn, brushed teeth, we were ALL ready for bed.  Tyler and I were in bed by 9:20!

Tyler took Emma and Gianna to see Despicable Me 2 Sunday morning.  They were SO excited!  I'm sure "Uncle" spoiled them with some treats too at 10:00 in the morning (after buying them donuts for breakfast).  That is what aunts and uncles are for, right? :)

We love our nieces so much so it's always nice to have them over.  Kyla just adores them!  It was a fun weekend, but two extra kids make for one tired Mama/Auntie!


  1. Sounds like a great weekend! And let it be said (yet again) that Kase is TOO ADORABLE! Kyla does look like she was enjoying that watermelon!

  2. There's nothing better than worn out kids from hours of swimming! Love that!

  3. Looks like a good time! No TD celebrations for the Packers on Sept 22 though, okay?! ;)

  4. Ah, I love Kase in his little floatie! Too stinkin' cute!
