Labor Day Weekend 2015

We went to Ohio to celebrate Great-Grandma's 90th birthday this weekend!  Isn't she adorable? 


I have about 30 cousins on that side of the family, and many of them have started reproducing, so D family gatherings are now loud, chaotic, and the children love them.


 After awhile, the chaos got to me, so I organized a round of duck, duck, goose.  It didn't last long since the 3 and under crowd couldn't quite grasp the concept, but it contained them for a bit.

We went to Lake Erie with my brother's family.  Love getting the cousins together.

 Spork is concerned about mermaid anatomy.  He couldn't stay away from Ariel, but every time he picked her up, he wore this expression of admiration tinged with disgust.

 The Nugget loved the sea walls.
The Nugget rounded up the cousins and some new beach friends to help with his vision for a giant rock pile.
This weekend was brought to you by Paw Patrol.  If you need a video to satisfy multiple children on a long car ride, Paw Patrol is it.  It's got adorable puppies, car chases, goofy adults, competent children, songs that will get stuck in your head, and awesome transforming vehicles, so I think it hits all the demographics. 

******************
This trip was one of the easiest we've had with the trio to date, but upon returning home, the Nugget immediately got sick, and today we had a toilet flood that dripped down into the master bedroom, so I'd say things are back to normal.
