Aspen Grove

So....you know how when you don't blog forever and then you try to catch up and your writing really...well...sucks. Yeah, that's probably going to be my writing for the next few posts (not to mention the last few) about our summer. I have a lot of catching up to do. I'll try to be brief, but sometimes I have a hard time doing that, so feel free to ignore my writing and look through the bagillion pictures I'm going to post with this one. :)

We went to Aspen Grove again this year, and it was, as always, AWESOME. I do have to admit, it's not quite as liberating as normal when you're a nursing mom. You're still kind of tied down...if not to your babies than to a pump. Yes, they watched the twins, but I still had to pump, which didn't leave me as much time as I'd like...especially for taking pictures. I took a ton at Aspen Follies, which is probably my favorite part of aspen grove, and a few of the family playing badminton, and just goofing around in general. But that was pretty much it. So here are the bagillion pictures:

Aspen Follies:

Aspen Grove Earth Ball

Aspen Grove Parachute
Ha ha, Okay, I have to interject some commentary here. That kid with his head sticking out of the parachute is my cousin. He's awesome. And let me tell you, Hannah LOVES him. Every time she played with him she would just laugh and laugh and laugh. It was awesome. And I have to say, I think that was one of the best things about this year...some of my extended family was there with us. My Aunt, Uncle, and their family came, and my grandparents came. We had SUCH a blast hanging out and playing games with them. I wish more could have come. It was seriously just awesome. Alright, back to the pictures.

And this picture on the right below is Addison and my cousin...when I was younger, if you had told me that I'd have a kid only a few years after my aunt had a kid, I think I would have thought you were crazy, but I'm SOOOOOOOOO glad I did! Addison had soooooo much fun with my cousin, it was great! She cried when we had to leave. The only way I got her to stop was by promising her that she'd see her in a few weeks at my brother's wedding. And...back to the pictures. :)

Aspen Grove People
Okay, seriously, after seeing the pictures don't you just wan to drop what you're doing right now and go to Aspen Follies? It's Seriously SOOOOO much fun! Ah, I wish I were there instead of in my messy kitchen choosing to blog in an attempt to avoid cleaning.

We did do other things...like Bubbles:

Every time I read your blog I want to sign up for a photography class. You have such a great eye. (And I'm serious. I'm married to an artist. I'm a tad too critical for my own good. But you really are taking some spectacular shots.)

ps. I can't wait to go to Aspen Grove some day. I'll remember to avoid having nursing twins when I go, though.
