Leakey, aka... The River!

Last weekend we went to the Pecan Farm in Leakey for our annual Culli/McKay/Camero/Rivera get-a-way!  We had a great time, but Brinley was glued to my hip.  I think it will be fun again once she is older.  For now, she's a home-body! Cayden had so much fun with all of his cousins, and I think we all really enjoyed watching him.  He LOVES being around people and having LOTS of attention.... boy did he get it!!

Brinley started crawling LAST week (at 7 months and 3 weeks).  She was able to show off some of her skills to the family.  That was fun!

Before we went to "the river," we started prepping Cayden.  We talked about Leakey and all of his cousins.  He quickly misunderstood and thought we were talking about the lake... as in LAGO!  We had to start calling it "The River" in order to help him understand a little better.  Our next obstacle was him thinking that this was Gigi & Pop's new home... and why the Gator wasn't there!!

The hat lasted about 3 minutes!!
She looks so comfy here!

Morning coffee/juice on the porch swing!

Cayden is so strong.

It was MY bright idea to tell Cayden to play in the sprinklers. 
He does it ALL the time at home. 
I didn't know he was going to DESTROY it!!
We all gasped and then quickly grabbed our cameras!
water shooting everywhere

Thank God Matt is so handy!!  He fixed it, but got drenched!
Yay Daddy!!!

Cayden LOVES Kennedy!!!  He talks about her all the time!

The Riveras were next door.  It was fun having them so close!
The big group was by the river. 

The twins attacked Kerri... several times!

We laughed about this for a long time. 
How hilarious does this look?!?!  They loved it!

We tried to get all of the kids (minus Brinley), but Cayden was sat on top of an ant pile.
That pretty much ruined the picture!!  :(
