Phew! Done with Harry.

So...about our vacation.

We spent another week in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We have been going there for over 10 years. We have always gone up north near Corolla, but this year for reasons I'm not privy to, we went south. to Nags Head. It was nice and convenient, but I think I like the North part of 12 better.

The water was freezing for most of the week, but our house had a pool so the kids we able to swim even if they could only wade into the ocean. The kids have been looking forward to the beach for months now, and already they are counting down to next year. But, I don't know if we'll be able to go next year because my one and only brother is getting married next year! YAY!

So, here is a picture of most of my cousins and some of their spouses/significant others. That's Granny in the chair and me on the floor next to her.

This a pic of the babies in our group. That's Colby (9mos), Taylor (6mos), and Ladybug (10mos) Next year we will have at least two new babies including a baby brother for Colby! YAY!

This is a pic of me and some of my cousins. I'm on the right in the blue Tshirt.

This is Chowder and Chris, my cousin's husband. Otherwise know as "The Boyfriends" or "The Annoying Twins." When they may or may not have been drinking, Chowder challenged him to a footrace at about 1:00am. Sadly, Chowder lost. But, this inspired other "overserved" cousins to strap on their running shoes and vie for the title of "Fastest Drunken Man."

This is my cousin Lauren holding Ladybug.

And this is Skaterboy with my brother teaching him to dive. He is a certified Master Blackbelt Scuba Guide Instructor Guy. (among his other titles.) I'm still waiting for the underwater pics he took. I'll post them when I get them. They are pretty cool. Skaterboy loved it! He wants to look into scuba lessons here in town, but says he is way too chicken to ever dive in the ocean. We'll see about that.

These are my favorite pics of the kids...I just can't get enough of the little white butts! I can't help it! They are so damn cute! Yes, they will kill me when they are teenagers and I pull this picture out to show their prom dates.

Those are the cutest pictures EVER. Yea, verily, even cuter than the ones of my own kids.

I love. love. LOVE the little white butts as well. And the 3 babies. And your (maybe or maybe not) drunken husband (he is so adorable)! And skaterboy scuba-ing! I want to learn! At first I thought your brother had some major chest hair going on, but then I realized that it was just the reflection of his head in the water. Yeah. I'm quick that way.

Your children are all so stinking beautiful, but how surprising is that with the most gorgeous parents on earth?
