Around the Cabin

We spent a lot of quality time around the cabin, with the kids racing around, playing together, and the adults sitting around talking. The kitchen area was nice and large, with a ton of stools at the counter for the kids to sit at:

Here are the one to three-year-olds, watching a Baby Mozart DVD at the end of the day:

Babies Henry and Charlie were hilarious together:

They would roll around, bump into each other, get stuck…

We played lots of games together. My favorite (not shown in this picture) was a game called Dominion. I stayed up WAY too late some of the nights, which was rough because Charlie was often waking up before 5 a.m. since his internal clock was on a later time zone.DSC_2263DSC_2356

Eli and cousin Larry have some definite similarities:

We added cousin Isaac to the mix:

And finally, cousin Kaelan (also known as KK), who did NOT want to be in a picture :) – he is two weeks older than Eli:

Cheryl put this poster together with each of our wedding photos (ours is bottom middle pic)…

There were two other cabins near ours, but we never had any interaction with people in them:

The view from the cabin – so pretty!

So many kids. It looked like a blast!

These are so really great posts!! Good job! I am laughing so hard at KK's fit he threw about getting his picture taken. That picture is hilarious! He definitely has some very strong opinions about things! It will be fun to watch as Eli and KK's relationship evolves as they grow up. It was funny to watch them be intrigued with one another and wary at the same time, like eyeing a strange cat or something!

BTW I will definitely bring Dominion at Christmas time! We must play on.

Looks like so much fun! I'm not surprised Cami got you all hooked on Dominion :-) Now she's going to be better than the rest of us, though, with all that practice!
