Jeff’s cousins came to visit a few weeks ago with their two adorable sons and their dog Annie. They live down near DC so we don’t get to see them as often as we like. Other than our wedding last summer the last time we saw them was in 2007 – needless to say Baby David isn’t quite a baby anymore 🙂
Their golden Annie is so sweet and she and Strider got along famously 🙂
The first morning of their visit we were up early….with the birds 🙂
The good thing about getting up early is you see sights like this – a perfectly calm lake with the sun rising behind me.
Now Annie doesn’t like to swim. So when we threw a stick in the water she did everything possible to grab it without going in 🙂
But then we threw it from the shore and she went right in after Strider no problem….I guess she swims now 🙂
Here David is attempting to stay dry.
David is still pretending to stay dry.
And then it’s all over 🙂 Time for outfit change #1 🙂
About 20 minutes later I was back up at the house and heard a little voice crying for his Mommy. Turns out David had gotten outfit #2 wet from swimming so was streaking across our lawn….I couldn’t resist taking a snap 🙂
This is David’s little Brother Zach who is a very smiley little guy
Thankfully Strider was totally unfazed by Zach and even enjoyed resting his head on Zach’s boppy 🙂
Later that afternoon right before a huge thunder storm rolled in we rushed out to try and get some shots on the grass.
Zach for all his happiness is not a huge fan of tummy time!
So instead we cajoled David into joining him for a few.
But he quickly lost interest and we moved on to the huge frog in the yard
When it leapt away David wasn’t sure whether to laugh or cry!
The next morning before I headed off for a wedding Annie regaled us with more leaping into the water. David was delighted.
LOVE this one 🙂
And lastly – David helps by throwing sticks 🙂
It was so great to see you and the little ones!
