enjoying our visit

We are having a wonderful time here in Flower Mound. We celebrated BIL Chuck's 50th yesterday with friends and family. How lucky that the only available time for us to visit happened to coincide with the party. The kids are LOVING being able to go to the pool. On the 4th, we actually got to SEEEEEEE fireworks - even up close! We had a ton of glow sticks (which is how we celebrated the 4th last year). We were at Jake's old elementary school in the playground area - the kids played and played and then the fireworks started. They were great fun to watch - lots of families there, some neighbors, all fun.

Rhys is most especially delighted to be with his big cousins Jake and Ben. Big Cousin Jake is exactly 10 years older than Rhys. I don't know for sure how much Jake is enjoying all the extra attention, but he's being pretty good about it.

Today is going to be Jake's first time (FIRST TIME!) seeing Raiders of the Lost Ark. Rhys is HUGELY OVER THE TOP excited about the fact that Jake will be seeing it. We've talked about it several times since before our trip even started.

So -- I'm going to go because lunch is happening and it's leftover Red Hot & Blue.
