A visit from my Durham favorites.

My sis and her two kids came to town for a quick visit.  Jane stayed and Mom will return her at the end of the week.  Meg and Fletcher went home yesterday.  I can never get enough of them.  Meg is my only sibling and only 1.5 years older than me.  I hate that she lives so far away but am so proud of the way she has made her own way in life.  She is an incredible momma, wife, church lady, designer, cook, and creative.  I was not quite ready for her (and Fletcher) to leave.  Having Jane to ourselves sure is fun though.  I just wish I didn’t have to go to work each day they were here.  Here are some pictures from our time together.

Fletcher is so big, getting his own chair on the front porch.  And his Honey Bee Tee makes him look so cool!

My parents have kept their membership at the neighborhood pool for years with very little use.  Why?  For days just. like. this.  Jane and Mom are the goggle girls.

Fletcher was not too sure about the water but he splashed a little bit.

Marlee and Emmabeth came to the pool with us.  They are older than Jane by a long shot but are really sweet to play with her.

This is the “I’m going to get you game” that comes in various forms.

We played with a big refrigerator box, which provided endless entertainment for both Jane and Fletcher.

This is the, “I will not look at you or smile” look.  She is really good at it.

The crazy coup from the neighbors is a big hit.

Little boys don’t need much.  A few balls to gather, throw and hold.  He is a happy camper.

Mayfield Park.  I missed this trip, but apparently, it was a hit.

We also had the opportunity to have our chosen family over to play–the Brydson/Dunaway clan.  This little happy hour had all sorts of fun, complete with a trombone concert.

Wills is in 6th grade and is a fantastic trombone player!

There was also lots of dancing (during the concert of course).

Some eating….

More eating…

And more eating…

Less chewing…

Even Fletch had his first cookie…

Something was really interesting on the phone.

We need more weekends like this…

(Someday soon I need to introduce my Austin-based new nephew and semi-new niece.  They are precious and only 11 months apart.  And their parents are saints.)
