More Fun with the Stupendous Six

It's not too often we get to see my brother and his family two weekends in a row, but these past two weekends have been an exception. This time, they headed our direction. Getting all six kids together ranks right at the top of my "favorite things to do" list!

Exactly when did my baby grow up? Leila looks like a teenager in this photo. sniff sniff

Grandma always has balloons. One can never have too many balloons.

If you can't find Lucy, check with Kara or Mia....

I just love this picture of my mom and Joe. Joe would climb on her back, flip over her shoulder and then jump off the 4" cushion onto the ground. He made every jump seem like such a huge leap. Then he would just sit on the ground and laugh, get up and do it all over again. It was too funny! My poor mother is probably in need of a chiropractor. :)

Go Joe!

Here's my theory: I think Joe eats all of the food off of Jorge's plate. he he

It's August and we finally get out the water slide!

Do these look like the faces of three kids in serious need of a nap?

Speaking of sleep... I've been working on this post for far too long. I have been having some serious issues with F*lickr lately and I think I have now set a new world record for taking the longest time to post pictures on B*logger. I'm off to get some rest.... I'm taking the girls to the zoo tomorrow morning!

There are some fantastic action shots here. I also really like the cool-tones in the second balloon picture. It's so nice to see our children having so much fun.

Hi Michelle,

Looks like the kids had such a great time.....they are all so cute...and HAPPY!! I cannot believe how much older Leila looks......it's as if she has grown up overnight!

Hope you get some rest:)

Umm... I didn't even recognize Leila in that picture, so yes, she DOES look like a teenager! And the pictures were well worth the time you took (easy for me to say - heh).
