Last night we attended a family get together/barbecue at Brad and Jodi’s house. All the kids were there except for Noelle and her family.
Cindy was there with her little boy Kai.
Little Gus was in attendance, just being his mellow little self.
Here’s little Gus with Uncle Jared.
Here are first cousins Dutch and Kai. Kai is older than Dutch by three weeks. Neither of them were particularly thrilled to be “imprisoned” in the play pen.
Here are Mama Susan and Hattie Mae jumping on the trampoline.
Here’s Izac, who has developed a lot of confidence since he took a gymnastics class this spring.
Here he climbs to the top bar of the swing set…
…and throws a leg over to hang by his knees.
Here are three monkey brothers: Jacob, Izac and Anson.
As I said, Izac has developed a lot of confidence since taking that class.
Here are Jared and his two boys Skylar and Dutch mounting up for a ride on Uncle Brad’s motorcycle.
And away they go!
I think Dutch is an aspiring motocross racer like his big brother Skylar. Well, he’ll have to wait three more years before he can race. The youngest riders at the RMR Plaza Cycle Motocross Park are four years old.
Here are Jodi and Brad.
Anson is about 11 months old and not quite walking yet.
He likes his Aunt Cindy.
And sometimes you don’t have to coax him very much to mug for the camera.
I could only coax a bare hint of a smile out of Kai, though.
Here are Mama Mindy and Dutch.
Here they render their version of “Popcorn Poppin’ On the Apricot Tree.”
I was just a little worried he might poke himself with that sucker stick, but no problem.
Here’s Kai with Cousin Dutch and Uncle Jared.
And here’s Hattie, bouncing on the tramp and mugging for the camera.
