Making Dirt Look Good

So here are the kids (Ethan didn't want to pose) after we had gone to a softball game to watch Tim play. The kids did really well until the end of the second game, when they got restless I let them go over the the other field that was open to run the bases. Needless to say that running the bases turned into fake sliding and that turned into drawing in the dirt and that turned into making sand castles with the dirt and then it progressed into a couple attempts to throw the dirt into the air and dance under it. By the time the guys were done playing the kids looked like they had been eating the dirt... they were covered literally from head to toe. Our bathtub had never seen that much action before!

Fun with the Cousins!

Before Seth, Lacey and Weston left us this summer we decided to get all the Jones cousins in the area together. The kids only sat still for the picture because Lacey was off to the side throwing marshmallows. On the top row we have Sydney, Michaela and Mackenzie, the next row is Addison, Tyler and Aidan, and on the bottom we have Weston and Ethan. Ethan and Weston tried their hands at a little drag putting on the girls dress-up shoes, and Tyler managed to get halfway naked by the end of the night. Aidan and Ethan cheesed it up, and here's our new favorite trick... when you ask Ethan where his eye is he'll wink at you! All in all it was a great night, the kids had fun although we grown-ups didn't get to socialize as much as we wanted to. We love our Jones Cousins!!
