We were all invited over to Shea’s parents’ house one evening. We all refer to Shea’s mom as “Grandma Dar” and are always thrilled to see her, as she too is one of our China travel-mates from 2007.
Caia was in her glory at her Grandma’s house, especially because her many cousins were there too! What a fun household it was for the five-and-under set that day! The girls all got along famously, playing dressup and some sort of three muskateers game (even though there were a lot more girls than three!). Their screams as they ran from anyone wielding a camera could be heard from far and wide.
Meanwhile, the two young boys claimed the couch in the basement:
Check out Beckett’s hockey gloves!
Outside, the kids had a blast in the little pool:
And little Scarlett demonstrated just how absorbent swimmer diapers are:
Here, Caia enjoys a moment with her cousin Ayven and friend Ava:
And then, after dinner, we were treated to dessert by Carly Cupcake! Shea’s sister makes the best cupcakes ever!
With full bellies, the three foster sisters (Claire, Kennedy and Maeve) took control of the couch and zoned out. The boys wisely vacated the couch without complaint.
