A Fun Weekend!

This weekend our nephews, Andrew and Bryan visited us. They are in town staying with their mom for the summer and we were able to take them for the weekend. Nicholas absolutely loved having his cousins here. They were great playing with him and he just laughed and laughed.

Andrew and Bryan spent a lot of time in the pool. Bryan said he couldn't swim when he got here Saturday morning and by Saturday night he was swimming like a fish. It just took a little coaxing from Uncle Mike and big brother Andrew and he tried. He did great!

We hadn't seen the boys since Christmas. It was great to get to spend some time with them. I can't believe how the years go by. It seems like they were just babies not too long ago. Andrew has grown into quite a great big brother. He really looks out for and takes care of his little brother. Bryan is a very caring little boy. He played with Nicholas and comforted him when he woke up with a nightmare (after Mandi was barking like a fool). They are both so well behaved it was easy having them here for the weekend.

Mike spent a lot of time in the pool with the boys. We got them out long enough to eat hot dogs and hang out with Nana and Grandpa for a little bit. They swam most of the day Saturday and after taking them out for ice cream they were back at it. They even got Mike and I to play pool tag with them. After an unsuccessful attempt at using our telescope in the backyard, they passed out watching The Rookie with Mike.

They were sleepyheads Sunday morning. Sleeping until I woke them at 9:30. Mike took them to pick up donuts. Then they headed back in the pool with Mike. We went to Peter Piper Pizza for lunch with Nana and Grandpa and they played a bunch of games. They used some of their tickets they won to get Nicholas a couple of toys. I thought that was sweet!

After lunch it was time to end our fun weekend so Grandpa could take them back up to their mom's house. We probably won't get to see them again until Chirstmas, when they will have another cousin.

Hey, Sis! Man, I saw the boys a few months ago and they even look more grown up to me. And Nicholas is just the sweetest looking kid ever.

I'm new to the blogging thing, too. Mine doesn't have anything at all on it yet, but hopefully I'll get some of my art up on there soon. It's over at:
