We have a few things that we do during the summer that have become pretty much tradition. One of these is slurpees and a trip to the park with cousins. Last year and this year, we did this while Matt and Anne were in town, so the Chicago cousins got to come, too.
Just for fun, this was last year's version:
And this year's version with taller and older kids. Robbie missed this year since he was at scout camp, but Collin was big enough to join the gang this time. Now if we could just get the Atlanta cousins to come join the fun...
Unfortunately, as they have gotten older, it's a little harder to keep the big kids happy. Pretty much the entire time at the park was an opportunity for Jonas to terrorize all of the girls. (He has gotten really good at this.) We may have to come up with a compromise or a substitution to keep everyone happy.
Another version of this year's crew.
But even Jonas won't turn down the opportunity for a slurpee - even if it means sitting still and smiling for the camera.
We love summer!
