When Steve and I got married, our families all came out to Texas for the week of our wedding. During that time, my sister Holly and Steve’s brother Stan met. A little over a year later, they got married. Fast forward another 8 years. There are now 6 kids between us and far too little time spent together. Thankfully the Other Kopers were able to come out to see us for 10 fun-filled days last month. And here's the proof:
McKenna was a pretty big fan of her littlest cousin.
The four big kids were inseparable.
Jack and Nolan had an intense super-hero battle on the kitchen stool one morning.
When Stan and Steve are together, they are 12-year-olds again. Remote control helicopters were purchased. They were flown, crashed and rigged to carry things. And don’t even get me started on the fart jokes and video games.
Holly and I got laughing one evening about the fact that when the guys are together they do the things they did as children – ride bikes, play with toys and video games… and when Holly and I are together, we do the things we did as children, also. Only now our dolls are real, our pots and pans are preparing actual food and the dishes are nowhere near as fun to wash.
Holly and Stan were here at just the right time to witness Las Vegas’ monsoon season with record flooding near our neighborhood (this street is still all torn up a month later and I have to go a little out of my way to get to the grocery store. It rained for about a week. Hopefully this street will be fixed before it rains again next year!)
We spent two beautiful (rain free!) days at Cancun Resort. The pool was beautiful and the jetted tub was pretty fun for these kids!
We were sad to see The Kopers leave but it is nice to know that the countdown to Christmas is on and our tickets to Dallas have been booked. Can’t wait to spend another week with some of our very favorite people!
….and now you’re all caught up!
