Old news--C Fam Reunion, New news--Ike Birthday


My fam had our annual reunion mid-July. Great fun as usual. So I thought I'd post some pix of it just to prove that it happened. 

So much fun to play at Jumping Jacks with all the cousins and aunts. The uncles weren't as fun because their big bodies kept on slamming into the little bodies......
Uncle Jordan leading a group of kids in a haka.

Hub needing to comfort Syd because she's 2 and her sleep cycle was in desperate need of  repair due to the  late hours and short naps the reunion allowed

 a sampling of the rapt crowd listening to a puppet show. I think. It's already been too many weeks and I can't remember what we did for sure....

Now on to more recent events. My big baby Isaac turned 11. He didn't request much besides Legos, books, clothes, fruit, a panda, a bunny, and gummy candy. He was able to score on most accounts.
The highlight of his party was this:











Basically Hub gets to hit the kids with a swimming noodle while they fight back with pillows. Not really #1 on my list of party games but to Ike it was mandatory. They liked it so much that I'm thinking of hiring Hub out for your parties as well. He comes with his own noodle.
that's all for now.

the pool noodle game looks like a complete success... and how can it not be at the top of your list? - My favorite games are those I can avoid being involved in :)

hmmm, that sounded a little "Debbie Downer" of me... I meant that in the most positive "I don't like to be beat on with pillows or pool noodles" way possible of course :)

You have a child that is 11? You must be much older than me..

so did Isaac score the panda and the bunny?

That reunion looked awesome! Too bad you didn't have any pictures of me you could post.

Looks like Ike had the best bday ever. He is such a nice boy.

Crazy fun and crazy that you have an 11 year-old! My achin' back we're getting old.
Props to L. for taking a beating like that. I'm sure Isaac and his party goers will remember that forev.

I hate it when my comments disappear! I enjoyed all of the pictures and the clever commentary. I don't feel old even though Ike turned 11 -- except for all of the parts of me that hurt. Right this moment that means I feel 98 percent young! What a great moment.
