A Tale of Four Cousins

We made a quick trip to Houston recently to visit some of our favorite cousins.  Since Stella had been in the car since 6 a.m. by the time we got there, we had to find a place to let off some steam.  Here's Savanah, ready for action...
What's it gonna take? TEAMWORK!  Damon and the kids ganged up on this whack-a-mole game...
Cheesy smiles and cheesy pizza...
Is this a good looking mother-son duo or what? 
Good genes just run in our family...
Cille got her first picture with Jamie...
And Jessica...
Stella learned early...just give the tickets to Savanah...
They are so happy together!  Let's move to Houston and do this all the time!
Darren has outgrown the space rocket already, but still dreams of being an astronaut...(actually, I made that up, but maybe)
Giddy-up! Savanah gives Stella some riding lessons, Texas style...
While all this fun was going on, Cille was busy, too...
As our mothers did before me, I forced the four kids to pose for a group photo.  The one that can't walk and the older two were much more cooperative than Stella...
Darren is thinking, "Yup.  It's a baby."
I can't remember what bribe I used to get Stella in the shot...
Savanah: still loving the lense.  Darren, Cille, and Stella: OVER IT...
By the time we made it to the hotel room these three were all tuckered out...
If you count REALLY big kids, this post should be entitled "A Tale of Seven Cousins," and we could even stretch it to eight if we're not picky about blood.  We had a fabulous time with the family that we were able to see, and don't worry if we missed you...we'll catch you next time!
