Visiting the Kinfolk

Last weekend, my aunt, the girls and I drove down to Murfreesboro, TN, just outside Nashville, to visit some family.  It was a great visit and went by much too fast.  The girls had a ball playing with their 4 Tennessee cousins.  Most of our activities involved entertaining the kids while sitting and chatting.

We swung on the tree swing, taking turns with the other kids.  Magnolia just loved this swing.  Wish we had a tree that we could hang a swing on in our yard.

 Boothe even got her turn to ride the swing.
 It rained one afternoon for a couple hours so we popped some popcorn and watched a movie.
 We played dress up.  A neighbor came over to visit and Sydney put her crown on the neighbor's head and gave her her wand.  The neighbor then playing along waved the magic wand and asked Sydney what she wished for.  Sydney answered, "actually, I wish I had my crown and wand back."  haha
 We did this.  Whatever this is.
 She really got her boxing skills down in no time.
 We ate ice cream with chocolate and strawberries.  And got ate up by mosquitos, but it was worth it!
 We wasted no ice cream.
 We laughed.
 We had a night of balloon blowing, popping, flying silliness.

 We made interesting uses for kitchen tongs.
 We waited to see what Jason had up his sleeve and was always pleasantly surprised with his ideas.

 We ate popsicles.

 We played with water balloons.  This is Boothe before squeezing her balloon....
 This is after it popped.
 Sydney pretending to be sweet and not about to throw that balloon full of water onto anyne.
 Best buddies.
 The biggest water balloon....ever.

 Boothe got quite attached.  And...
 was a bit upset when it popped all over her.
 Trying to pop a balloon that doesn't want to pop.
 Here it goes...

 And one more for good measure...
 Phyllis, Kathy and Delbert.  My mom's sister, Kathy, whom we traveled to TN with and brother.
 Most of the Tennesee crew.  See you all at Thanksgiving.  It's your turn to come to Indiana!
