Sister visit number one

We are having a lot of visitors this summer. Last weekend, my older sister Johanna and her family came to visit us. Her daughter Meredith is very popular at our house... the littles could barely contain their excitement that she was coming. Meredith is at that convenient age where she is still fun for the littles to play with, and also fun for Emily and Anna to take shopping at the mall. We really enjoyed having them visit and are thankful that Colin and Johanna decided to visit us at the end of their vacation tour of the upper midwest and great plains.

Our sweet and sassy Meredith!

My cousin Crystal, husband Don and their kids joined us for some lake fun. Here the grown-ups are relaxing while the kids swim.

Boatload of kids!

He won, using his creative rules for the game.

As a final disclaimer, I want it to be publicly known that Meredith did indeed drive the jet ski on her own... for some reason I can't find a picture. She did an excellent job, and the absence of photographic evidence should in no way indicate otherwise.
