uncle stephen and Chuck E Cheese

So, during our visit to TN we were able to meet up with Stephen, Christi, Charlie and brand new little Piper.
We don't go to C.E.C. except for special occasions. It's just too crazy and hard to keep an eye on everyone. However, the one at River Gate wasn't that busy, which was nice.
On one of our surveys of the kids, we couldn't find Elam.
Here's where we found him.

You see, if you climb up in the basket ball game, you can get a free ball.
Beau enjoyed driving with Chucky.

The kids had fun playing with Charlie and Piper.

It was nice seeing Stephen and his family.
Stephen has a special place in our family. He was Gibson's suite mate for a short time. That's how he earned the "Uncle" part of his name.

Here's a cute video of Gibson and Elam playing air hockey.

Tennessee fun

The first week of June was VBS and scout's camp and then Gibson's tap recital. That Sunday, we left for Cousin's Camp. Andrew was going to get to work at the Nashville Dell part of the time and the kids were going to get to spend some time with their Grani and Papa and Aunt Christy and Uncle Daniel and Cousins Hannah and Benjamin.

The first project was T-shirts.

Then we spent some time at a Jump zone called Monkey Joes. They REALLY liked that.

We had a picnic that afternoon. The kids loved Grani's special fruit kabobs and hot dog kabobs.

Every night was movie night. Haven loves seeing her cousin Hannah.

Here are the little boys with their Papa and a few group shots from the zoo.

We had so much fun.

We get to see them again real soon for Aunt Annaliese's wedding.

Gibson's tap recital

Gibson's first tap recital.

He takes tap from my friend Becky. She lets him take for free. In exchange I help her when I can, like for the recital. The FOUR hour recital!!

He did so good! She is planning on an all boy class next year.
