Cousins, manual labor and camp fires!

After our visit with Olivia and Grandma and Grandpa, Adam and I headed over to Poppy's for more fun family time!

Auntie Bebe, Uncle Mark and cousins Dave and Kurt were over as well and with the mild temperatures we spent a lot of time outdoors.

The boys spent most of the afternoon helping to re-build the log cabin in the woods (I think Andy is still sore) as well as building a fire pit that we'd enjoy later that evening.

Adam felt he needed to do his fair share, so he helped out by sweeping off the deck. Unsure of the correct way to actually use a broom, Kurt was right there to teach his little cousin how it was done! (Ommy-when you get home from Florida you'll have a very nice and clean deck!)

Before Adam's bedtime he also got to cuddle up with his cousins as they each read to him his Elmo book---he was loving that!

After dinner we all bundled up and headed out to the newly built fire pit and enjoyed a campfire! We all felt like we were on a camping trip even though we were merely 50 yards from the house. We even roasted marshmallows and everyone took turns keeping Poppy company in the hammock.

Not a bad little Saturday! :)
