When Your Aunt Is Only 10

My youngest sister, Bekah,  is 10 years old.  
That makes her just 20 months older than my Gavin, her nephew! 
It is pretty neat when your aunt is also one of your best friends.

Bekah spent this hot, sunny day at our house.  
It began with a demure dip in the pool.

Don't let the plastic smiles fool you.
By afternoon, the pool was old news and we had moved on to the bigger guns...
sailing down the super-slippery playground slide.  

Stumbling.  Laughing.

Falling. Giggling.

And tearing up the grass just a bit (much to Brian's chagrin)!

(What is a hot day without a drink from the hose?!
Several of the kids had to sample the rubbery goodness.) 

Everyone was worn out by dinner time.  
One even fell asleep at the table. 
The rest managed to eat their dinner and their 4th of July cake...
but ALL were sound asleep by 9 o'clock!


Oh, happy day!

  1. Awww...looks like GREAT times, the times of which memories are made! Thanks for hosting the first sleepover of the summer. (Looks like I'll have my work cut out for me to match this one!)
