Remembering Memorial Day

It's been a week, and it still looks like a tornado swept through my house...but I love having family over! A few months ago Marc and Marcy offered to drive up from D.C. to visit over Memorial Day weekend and Jonathan and DeAnn said they'd come, too...which means that we had 9 kids and 6 adults in the house! Its always so much fun to get together and we were so happy to meet Emma for the first time. Here's a glimpse at how we filled the time:

We made the kids eat, play, and generally live outside to control chaos...or attempt to...
...but there was still a fair amount of craziness...Remember the failed pajamas and cheaply patched exercise pants? Well, little Emma has coordinating (and nicely made) monkey pjs, too.Look closely...what seems to be a cute picture of Aaron and Isaac is actually a pretty funny pick-ture of Nathan digging for gold...And then there was this--an afternoon spent on the coolest bike you'll ever see (count them--that's 8 people on one bike!)Poor little Aaron had to wait for his turn.

Thanks, guys for a fun weekend!
