I am so amazed at how creative these kids were. The girls found a site that showed you how to re-fashion old t-shirts into new outfits. They spent a night with a bag of "rag" clothes that I gave my daughters for their creative endevors and made some amazing things. Unfortunately, I have no pictures of that because Eric and I were out. This inspired the boys to have a fashion show, too, which I did immortalize in pictures:
A lot of fun involved swimming and playing games. Banagrams is currently the most popular. Think of it as Speed Scrabble without the board where the winner is the one who uses the last tile first. The kids were great at playing together. My oldest son and nephew really developed their friendship. Nana and Poppa were able to watch Kyle play baseball while I ferried the girls to church activities one night. I was able to spend some quality time with my niece and oldest daughter. Another highlight was taking Poppa and the boys on a hike of Wind Cave Trail at Usury Mountain State Park. The trail takes you near the top of Pass Mountain. I have done the hike at least a half a dozen times. Last time Nana and Poppa visited, they brough my niece with them and I arranged a girl's hike up the mountain. It was great to spend time with the boys, too. The weather while they were visiting was beautiful.
I have some more videos that I created from the few pictures I took. However, I have had some problems loading more than one video for some reason (or Blogger is not behaving itself). So the next post will be mainly pictures of the Wind Cave Trail hike.
