During our trip to Michigan we attempted to get the cousins all together for a picture. This sure was a challenge. I am so thankful for digital cameras. I was just able to click away with about 100 pictures total and I think I got a few good ones.
First off, we started with the three oldest ones, Aubrey, Olivia, and Alex.
This was a challenge in itself.
Then we added Johnna to the picture.
Then we added Simba and there you have it.
Alex and Simba were done with the pictures, so only the girls were left. Cutie-pies!
Just after Thanksgiving and before Jamison, Jessica, and Marissa left, we took a drive over to Pilot Mountain. We went there to check out their hiking paths. We were so lucky to have such wonderful November weather. The hike was great. Some of the paths were very wide and others were narrow with rocks to climb over. It would be a great hike to go back to someday.
We tend to go to the nearby Science, Museum and Zoo quite often lately....especially with our visitors. We took the trip there when Marissa, Jessica and Jamison came to visit. It was fun to spend the day together and share our local treasure.
Jessica and Alex enjoyed brushing the sheep and goats.
Aubrey enjoyed it too.
All five of them following the wing movement of a bird.
I think it looks like Alex is ready to give the Gecko a kiss. : )
Since all of Dave's kids were together with us for Thanksgiving, I gathered everyone together to get a family picture. Thanks to our photographer, Deanna, for being patient with us while all of us attempted to look and smile in the right direction.
