todd family reunion: hanging out at nana and papa's

for the last month the pictures from our todd family reunion have been hanging over my head, just waiting to be blogged. and while i know there are more pictures than anyone else would care to see, i wanted to document this fantastic week with my family. i loved having them all here so much and it was sad when they eventually left (although i needed a week to rest up after all we did). we had so much fun and it was non-stop playing (and usually non-stop chaos). my mom is an amazing planner and had multiple activities, games and outings planned for everyday (there was an actual spreadsheet detailing who was in charge of dinner, the outing, the game and the craft for the day). in an attempt to make posting a little more manageable, here are just some of the fun things we did while hanging out at my parent's house:

lego creations
the boys built the most incredible things

crafts and eating
always lots of eating!

playing with uncle dave when we were lucky enough to have him around. dang work always gets in the way of fun.

playing in the sandbox
in "hot chocolate" as the kids affectionately called the soupy sand mixture after they dumped tons of water into the box.
logan couldn't decide what he thought of "hot chocolate" (especially how it tasted).


playing in the backyard
sometimes with toys and sometimes eating rocks (he has a guilty look on his face. probably because i had told him not to eat rocks before and he knew he just got caught).

bath time with cousin ava

playing the candy bar game with nana

sno cones
the kids loved my old sno cone machine from way back in the day.


rocket balloons
these balloons were totally cool. once they were blown up you let go of them and they "zoomed" around the yard like a torpedo while they deflated. they provided a good 15-20 minutes of fun!

waterslide

lots of popsicles

lots of family time

logan was loved on by all his cousins. every once in awhile the love got to be a bit much, but overall logan loved getting to know his cousins better and they sure loved him.

rolling down the hill in the backyard (a favorite from my childhood)


family talent show including:
singing (with a guitar and a capella), playing the piano, the macarena, hula hooping, dancing, soccer tricks, first steps
(unfortunately not logan. his cousin ava is showing him up. she's 6 weeks younger)

car wash
there were some cars that drove a long way to get to colorado and they were mighty dirty.
we just drove across town, but our car rex was lucky enough to get a nice scrub down too!
next up: outings around town!

Lets say I had robustness insurance and I developed cancer which the insurance company payed the medical bills to I could get better. Florida is also more vulnerable to strong hurricanes that develop along the Gulf.
