Summer Birthdays celebration at Great Grandmom's house.

We had a family reunion with our life long friends the Morrises, and all our kids we have added over the years.  (From left to right) Walker, Sophie-June, Ford, Madeline, Reese, Ryder, Emet, Evi, Gracie, and Zoe.  Age range from 1-9.
 The cousins.  Everyone was listening to important pool instructions, except Ryder and Emet
 Reese and Gracie.

 Evi and Smed showing off their diving skills.

 I don't know what it is about these three together (Gracie, Emet, and Reese) but they always make me laugh.
 Popsicle time by the pool.
 This is the only picture I have of Janet...a picture of Reese taking her picture.

AAARRRRGGG!!!!!  Ryder's first Birthday.

 The pirate girls, Zoe and Grace are really selling it.

 The new Abercrombie and Fitch cover models - cousin edition.

More waterskiing on Lake Grapevine.

 Reese and Ryder tried wakeboarding...sort of.

While the girls went to the American Girl Doll store, the boys went to the hangar to look at the planes and eat at the Blue Hangar Cafe.
 Emet and Reese had a fun time trying to fly the planes, Emet actually did get to fly the plane later that afternoon.

 Ryder and Ryan checking out the planes.
 Reese, Emet, and Uncle Smedly.

No trip to Texas is complete without going to Pappasitos, and it was the most quiet the kids were all week; all you need is some chips and salsa, crayons, and a kids menu.
