We have started an annual tradition of spending Memorial Day weekend with our good friends from college, the Rowes and the Kreys. This was our 2nd annual get-together at someone’s house and this year the Kreys were our host in Waco. We had such a great time! Between the 3 families, there were 8 kids 5 and under… CRAZY!!!! It’s so fun though to get together with other families with little kids- we just share in the craziness together. :) We did a LOT of laughing during our 3 days together.
The Kreys have an awesome house with an incredible backyard and we spent the majority of our weekend hanging out outside.
Here are Emma, Hazel, Emerson, and Oliver hanging out on the porch swing:
And here are: Haden, Emma, Hazel, and Elliott on the porch swing:
Emma and Emerson got to play with the boys’ Leapsters and Nintendo DS’ and they were fascinated by some of the games.

Trying to get our annual picture of all of the kids:
Foster was WAY cool in his blue shades!
And this picture absolutely cracks me up: this is the adults trying to get 8 kids to smile for a picture!!! Very flattering of Jessica and myself. :)
On Sunday we went to Hawaiian Falls, Waco’s brand new waterpark. The kids had so much fun!

*** The following pictures were taken by Kathy Krey. I’m always so thankful that she captures such awesome memories in such a talented way. I LOVE the close up pictures that she took of my kids.
Here are Robin and Foster “playing basketball.” We were cracking up because Foster kept throwing the basketball over his head backwards. We have a little bit of teaching to do before he plays in the NBA. :)
And he dunks!!!
Love this shot:
