Filipino Family Fun

This weekend, we had a pleasure of having Steve's Mom and his Aunt Noemi out to visit us from New Jersey. To say we had fun would be an understatement. We had such a good time with them. We didn't do anything special, just ate a lot of delicious meals, played a lot of family games and spent a lot of time playing with the kids. The kids made out like bandits while their Grandma and Aunt Noemi were here. They got a lot of new toys and clothes and didn't mind one bit!

On their last day, we went out for family photos in the Bluebonnets.

Here is Mom Koper with her two sons and their families.
(Jack's face is blocked by a big bluebonnet!)

We made S'mores in the backyard that night.

Nolan with his Lola

We spent Saturday afternoon at Holly and Jr's house. Gabby swam in her shorts and Steven in his underwear. Neither were fans of the big pool - still too cold. But they enjoyed Nolan's little Crab pool!

Somehow we got into a hool-a-hooping kind of mood. Everyone was hool-a-hooping by the end of the day. Here's Aunt Noemi showing us how it's done.

Nolan was sceptical of this whole crabby-pool-thing but he sure looked cute in his sun hat and speedo!

Gabby wanted to hold her cousin. She just loves him.

Steve and his mom

We had brunch at Cracker Barrel on Friday and Jack had some lemon. He would make this face, then go back for more. It was so cute.

Mom and Aunt Noemi participated in one of Steve and his brother's favorite pastimes: shooting targets in the backyard with BB guns. Steven likes to pretend he's shooting, as well.

We had a great time with them and we hope they will visit again, soon. We love you, Mom and Aunt Noemi!
