Good Ol' Fun on the Farm

We had a family picnic at my cousin's farm on Saturday. It was great to see all of my relatives and it's always so much fun to see my nephews and niece. The kids just have such a fun time at the farm... they fish, fly kites, ride around in golf carts, pick berries and all things fun for little kids. Warning: This is going to be a very photo heavy post, but I promise it's full of cuteness.

My two-year old nephew, Joe.
"Hey, baby. Whatchu doin'? Wanna ride?"

Wanna Ride?

"I should warn you. I'm a flirt. And I love the camera."

The Flirt

"And the camera loves me."
Adorable Joe

"It's tough being this cute. I need to take a rest on my daddy's shoulders."
(My brother)
Rob & Joe
My niece, Lucy (5), and Mia are inseparable.... even when playing in the worms.

Lucy & Her Wiggly Friend

"Hey, we'll let this cute little guy into our twosome."

The Youngest Cousins

Inseparable Cousins

I've been told that some people have trouble telling Lucy and Mia apart. Hint: The super silly one is mine!! :)

Goofy Girls in the Treehouse

Yep, super silly.

And now super cute... my nephew, Jorge (6). He and Leila were so busy, I didn't capture as many shots of them.

Double cuteness.

I'm always so sad when the day has to come to an end and the my brother, his wife and the kids go back home. Next time, Da Xin will get to enjoy the farm! Only 4 more days and we're on our way!!!
