Summer and I have gotten really close. We can tell each other anything and laugh a lot. We parent the same way, we enjoy the same kind of wine...we have fun.
Jon and Bear have gotten really close too. They have a lot of likes and some differences that bring them together. Differences like Nascar versus Hockey and Frog legs versus a steak.

It's funny when we get to a gathering like this. We all tend to congregate with our immediate family in the beginning until we warm up to each other again. Then we spread out and 3rd cousins meet each other for the first time and play together. We've all changed over the years but you end up visiting with the cousins who have the kids the same age and compare stories and get to know each other all over again.
Chris, my brother-in-law, brought enough baseball equipment for every person to play ball with! It was so fun. My uncle shut off the electric fence, moved the cows to a different pasture and grabbed the shovel. We played a full 9 innings with players coming and going when they wanted. It was an automatic double if the ball flew in the little river and a timeout in the game to fish it back out of there.

I had to post this pick of Scott swinging out of his shorts. I love how I captured the ball behind him as he misses. So mean of me, but he rarely misses and I love teasing him. He kept saying his back hurt because he was wearing sandals, not because he was swinging so hard! Right Scott.
My cousins little girl and Emmitt are just months apart. They hit it off wonderfully. It was fun to see these cousins play together all these years later.
Emma Rae just chillin'. She was of course a big helper with my kids, as always.

My group. We rocked it out there and shot a 77 and tied for 3rd place.

After talking about the dangers of the pond in the backyard just the day before, we come out to find 2 of the 5 stripped down to their underwear and soaking wet from being IN THE POND! This is no small pond. We're talking over 3 feet deep in the middle not to mention totally disgusting and full of mosquito eggs!I freaked out. There is the 2 year old contemplating if he should go in. The eight year old standing there in astonishment at my screaming. The two naked boys, I think, thought all the yelling and crazy mom arm waving was funny! I grounded Parker until he was 15. Or atleast for the week. No Birthday party for you on Saturday buddy. I almost could not believe how naughty Parker was. He demolished a bench I got for a wedding present and threw the wood in the pond. Laughed at me when I yelled at him. Then sassed me when I drug him in the house by his arm. I totally pulled the "you just wait until your father gets home" card on him. Now that scared him! As soon as Bear came home I filled him in and he dealt with the discipline and danger of the pond talk. I walked as slowly as I could to a graduation party and tried not to eat 5 pieces of pie...
