One of my nieces has been visiting us this week. Betsy is my brother David's daughter. My kids have had a supersonic blast having her here.
We played at the pool today.
And Betsy created some fun cousin moments.
The kids had so much fun playing with her.
Lily Kate's tenacity always shows itself at the pool. Work it out on the climbing wall!
Can you feel the sibling love??
Betsy capped the fun times off with icees for everyone. Mall Icees, she calls them. She calls them that because there was only one place to get icees in Boone, NC, where we are from. That was - you guessed it - at the Boone Mall. The Peanut Shack, to be exact.
This is a tree in our yard. It's a hydrangea tree. I bought it because my mom had an amazing hydrangea tree in our backyard when I was growing up. And she loved it. We all loved it. So Angela and I bought one, and we named it Ollie, which was my mom's first name. Ollie is brand new this year, and she just started blooming for the first time. So, here are 4 of Ollie's grandkids...standing next to...well, uh...Ollie. Awwww.
Thanks for visiting us, Betsy. We love you!
