My sister's birthday was Sunday and her family, our family, and our brother's family all gathered at our parents' house to hang out and eat. Not sure why I didn't bring my camera, but I did get this one picture with my phone. Captain America was nice enough to take off his mask while he ate.

Saturday, though, I took pictures. A few of our friends came over for a cook-out and a last-hangout-before-baby-comes for my friend Maria who is having a little girl soon! Unfortunately, I didn't get pictures of the adults, but I got plenty of the kids! The cute blonde is Maria's son (and almost big brother!) Isaac.
|Paxton had a little picnic for one while he debated getting on the trampoline|
|This is Isaac. We call him Slim.|
|This is Xander. Best Big Bro|
|Here we go. I figured out that Paxton really likes the trampoline if he gets to hold a giant bouncy ball while he's on there. Also - Piper is super impressed by Slim here.|
|Piper likes to lay down and let the other kids bounce her.|
|More ball action|
|I think this one summed up trampoline time perfectly. Xander running around. Paxton hugging the ball. Piper with wild static hair. Slim playing with the twins.|
|Then the little ones got off and did some other things, like swing. . .|
|. . . while Lucas bounced Xander really high.|
|Piper got a turn on the swing too.|
|And Paxton showed Slim his |
We chatted and ran after kids and ate delicious burgers and enjoyed the 72-degree weather. It was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
And - just because - here is a picture taken last week when Lucas was playing with the twins' hair in the bath. You're welcome.
