Last week Uncle Nathan, Aunt Megan and childrens came for a visit! Yah! We had lots of fun hanging out, breaking up fights, eating, breaking up fights, going out for bike rides, breaking up fights...you get the picture. 7 grandkids aged 5 and under all together sounds like a really fun idea...in theory. Actually, it really is fun--it's just busy fun. Someday we'll miss this phase, I'm told.
This is dancing, in case you were wondering.
Tadd and Nathan decided to take an over night camping trip and ride their mountain bikes a little. Poor Alan got left at home to work and oversee the huge remodel at his house.
No, they did not share a tent. Nathan took the back of Tadd's pick-up and Tadd took the tent--with a knife in case of bears : )
Uncle Nathan and Aunt Megan don't have a lot of folks who live real close by from their meeting down where they are from. And around here we can't even count how many folks we have living close by from our meeting. It doesn't really seem fair. So, we thought we'd share some fellowship with them and invite everyone over for a Saturday morning brunch while the Miller 5 were here. We sure had a lot of fun. So much fun that I didn't take more than 3 pictures. And they are all of the food. Whoops. Oh yeah, there's a few thrown in of the kids. These first pictures are of Caroline after she finished playing outside the night before the brunch. Daddy was busy fixing up the yard and mommy was busy in the kitchen. Left to their own devices, the kids were kids. Ezra threw shovel-fulls of dirt on Caroline (who didn't complain, but rather ate the less-than-tasty-stuff). There was a huge dirt ring in the bathtub after she soaked for half an hour or so. And that still didn't get all the sand out of her curls.
We had lots of help with folks bringing delicious brunch foods--the table was groaning.
A couch full of trouble! The only one missing is Baby Mia.
All those folks to fellowship with and they were content to lounge around with just the two of them : ) This is actually after everyone had cleared out.
