I captioned this picture on Instagram saying: Only the very best grandparents would insist that their kids all go out to dinner while they stay home and wrangle nine little people.
This girl. She was definitely my 'accessory' for the entire trip. But I (mostly) loved it. She is the last of our little ones so I'm glad that we're getting a lot of time together. She sure did a good job convincing me that I've had my fill of babies on this trip!
It was Charlie and Leah's first time in the car at Lake Tahoe Pizza Company.
That car is filling up with cousins!
We also snapped a sibling picture. Regardless of time and distance apart these five are tight and can always pick up right where they left off the last time they were together.
We hiked up to Big Meadow again to show all of the family how beautiful it is.
Noah and Luke were happy to have cousins to play games with.
Our evenings in the backyard are my favorite. Every time we're out there it just seems to be exactly what summer should be: campfire, loads of family, good food, and nothing, I mean nothing, feeling rushed or busy.
