MI08: "Fun size"

So the annual Michigan weekend this year was a little light on the booze and heavy on the diapers and goldfish! There were a lot of cute kids being followed by their paparazzi parents (oh wait, that was just me). No one fell in the fire this time, and there wasn't a lot of "fire talk," but we did have fun playing in the sand, watching the kids goof around with each other, and seeing the amazing opening ceremonies of the Olympics. Annie came with Sarah and Sam and Nate- I can't believe that Nate is younger than Maya:). Check out the picture below of these 2 cuties!!! Also look at the smile on Tonito's face when he got to steer the boat- priceless!!! Vivi was in heaven playing with her older cousins Abby, Jack and Josh, who were so nice to her. At one point we were all around the fire and she and Josh were jumping off the bar of the swingset- laughing so hard I wish the pictures had sound. Jack is the most gentle and kind boy with Maya- he really interacts with her and she just smiles at him adoringly. Tonito loved being held and played with by everyone, especially Uncle Harpo. He wasn't talking that much during the weekend, but he just kept smiling and crawling into everyone's laps. I was amazed at how well all of the kids got along, even though they are different ages and don't see each other all the time. We are all so lucky!
