This is a late posting, it just took me a while to compile the pictures since there were a little of mine and a little of my mom's.
A few weeks ago, my mom got to keep my niece and nephew for a week's time. We packed in all kinds of fun play time, giving the kids plenty of time to play together and indoctrinating them to love to visit their Gram & Pops and Uncle Nick and Aunt Aubrey.
The first day we took them to the local park. It was our first time to visit this park, and I must say it's really nice. The kids ate it up.
All three trying to climb up.
Xander was a maniac on the playground. He would climb everything with no fear.
Selene being cute.
All three on the swings.
The boys riding the space shuttle.
Selene is such a spunky girl. Ryder finds it funny, apparently.
We took a snack break. This picture is such a good depiction of each of their personalities. Selene is all out, Xander looks like he's trying to make sure everyone's got what they need, and Ryder is stuffing his face.
Later after nap time, the kids got to enjoy all Gram's new outside toys.
The next day we went into town. We grabbed some lunch and went to the Brookshire's Wildlife Museum.
Lunch at Wendy's meant chicken nuggets and fries (so healthy, I know). The twins loved it but Ryder only like the fries. That's my little vegetarian.
Xander giving Gram a serious face.
The Wildlife Museum was great, but the kids were really too young to appreciate it. Luckily they have a smashing playground.
The boys playing on the vintage fire truck.
Ryder was obsessed.
Boys being boys. Trying to get into the locked train caboose.
Running around screaming was a favorite pastime of these two.
This is what happens after a day of hard play.
The next day we took the kids to local library.
They enjoyed playing and checking out all the cool stuff in the children's room, but at some point they were ready for a little more rambunctious play than is proper for a library, so we took them back to Gram's.
The next day they came over to our house and played outside. The twins got to jump on the trampoline and enjoy swings, trikes, and just plain fun.
Unfortunately I didn't get any more pictures of their visit, we were all having too much fun. The twins are coming back for another week in July, and we are already booked up with things to do that week. It's so nice to get a chance to spend some time with them, especially for Ryder. He's getting to know his cousins really well and getting to an age where he really likes to play with other kids. We look forward to their next visit!
