Cousins Weekend in Kalispell
Since there are three birthdays within 5 days in April, we decided to head down to Kalispell to celebrate with the Montana cousins. Grandma and Grandpa joined us, turning it into a mini-reunion weekend.
We had a little birthday party with three sets of candles on the cake. We also managed to heave a good number of rocks into Echo Lake. Scott followed older cousin C around like a shadow, but also had a lot of fun playing with those closer to his age. In the occasional instance when there was noone immediately available to play with him, he experienced a certain amount of panic. Fortunately, Beez would usually step in and help him out by volunteering to watch him play a computer game or something like that.
Beez was also Katie's good buddy during the visit. Katie could often be found by herself, just going up and down the stairs or opening and closing the door. However, at least as often, you could find her playing with Beez, who seemed to have limitless patience and enthusiasm for the things that interest a 2-year-old.
Uncle C disappeared Sunday evening for over an hour and noone was quite sure where he went. Finally he emerged from one of the bedrooms. Apparently, he had crawled between the bed and the wall to get a pillow off the floor and had fallen asleep there.
Cousin C brought out his arsenal of AirSoft weapons, hoping to have a war of some kind. Unfortunately, none of us have any guns and there were very few zombies in the region to defend against, so he had to settle for some dramatic photos with his biggest gun. This boy's interest in military hardware reminds me of a guy I knew when I was a kid...
