On our way back to IL, we stopped in IN to visit my friend Tina and her family.
Tina and I go WAY back, as witnessed by these photos. ;-)
And as witnessed by the following photo, we have both been busy over the past few years - we now have TEN children between the two of us, all ages six and under - and eight of them are boys! So, as you can imagine, it was a wild and exciting time for us to get our families together. We all enjoyed it *thoroughly*!
The big highlight for the boys was playing in the mud! They all especially enjoyed this amazing game of getting the bike's training wheels stuck in the puddle and spinning out to splash mud on all those around! Other boys would contribute mud piles to the back tire for further distribution. It just doesn't get any better than this!
Of course, the girls were in the house in the meantime, playing dress-up. :)
We can't wait to get together again!
