One of the highlights of my visit  with the kids was going to Garrison's birthday party (I think he is four), and seeing all the kinfolks from Bobby's side of the family.  There is a second crop of kids now, and we need to get together more often so the little ones can play and have some good memories.  They need bonding time!  Everyone finally got to meet Miss Hattie.

Aunt Rita and Uncle Garry introduced themselves to her.

Haley and cousin Bow.
Rhys loved the blow up thing, and was right at home on it.
It was a beautiful day for a party outside at Stephanie and Cody's party barn.
Robert and Miss Haley--cousin look alikes.
Aunt Rita and Miss Hattie.
Graden already needs to shave.  No, not really--the theme was "Pirates" and he was playing the part.
Stephanie and Cody had lots of game for the kids to play.
Haley and Rylan.
Robert putting Rhys' shoe back on.
Here they are, cousins and friends, ready for the next event.
Walking the plank. " Ok," Stephanie says to Rhys, "we start on this end to walk the plank!"
After walking the plank, and finding treasures,  they got to throw water balloons at the pirate ship, and here is Rhys letting one fly.
Rylan is trying to salvage a water balloon to throw again.
The ship is down but there are still balloons airborne.  Someone is going to get wet.
At last, they get to take a crack at the piñata, and here is Rhys doing his part to "bust" it open.
Gathering up the prizes.  They looked like ants on a piece of bread and honey!
Robert and Stephanie.
Rhys putting on his pirate face and growling like a mean old sea dog.  That is Garrett's dog in the back ground.
Garrison got lots of presents to round out the day.  Happy birthday, big boy!
 And last but not least, we see Averie lolling around waiting to get her senior pictures made.
If your want to see the pictures, go to Rita's FB page and take a look.  I can't believe we have another kid on the verge of college.  The first thing we know all those babies throwing water balloons will be getting senior pictures made, and deciding where to go the school.  Well, I could go on reminiscing, but will end it here.  It was great to see everyone again before I went back to PA.  Love y'all!  Thanks for the good time.
