Cousins Come to Kansas

Spring Break calls for a road trip to visit far-away family!
 My parents brought my oldest brother and his two boys out for their school furlough.

First we prepared food for the extra mouths: breakfast breads, dinner breads, and desserts.

Then we set out the coffee bistro.

Then we decorated the birthday cousin's cake.

Finally our guests arrived and we celebrated!


Happy 7th birthday Isaac!

Our party game was balloon rocket races.


Mamaw brought out some funnies too.

Mornings brought storytime.

And a delightful snow to sled and play in!


 
We had a great time when the relatives came!

Soft Sunshine Shots (a girl and a cat)

If you were three
like me,
You would go outside
and your stocking feet not hide;
But look for the cat
that promptly sat
(after some strong physical coaxing).
Then just enjoy
her like a toy
cradled, on top
straight up, flop, flop!

These carefree sunshiny spring days!
