Celebrating together

Road trip! We went to Highland, Ill., which is about three hours from our house, to celebrate our niece's second birthday. Happy 2nd birthday, Mae Rose! We had a fun day on the road, at the birthday party, hanging out, watching a parade, and eating dinner before we headed home.

My husband led the charge to make up this game that involved hitting a ball with plastic bowling pins. 

I lost count of how many times Ben told Mae "Happy birthday!" But doesn't he look sweet doing so?

These two are mischievous, so there is no telling what they're planning. Only seven months apart, Ben and Evelyn are buddies ... and super sweet together when they want to be!

These two always have something to say and like to sit next to each other at any family function. Cousins make good friends, and I'm thankful my kids' relationships with these cousins and the other side.

Highland may rival Murray as a town that loves parades. This was part of some festival honoring the town's Swiss heritage. The parade was about an hour long and my kids have bags full {literally!} of Tootsie Rolls and other candy to prove it. And this isn't the first time we've been to a parade in Highland.

Elvis was there! Actually, that's my brother-in-law promoting a local play. Good stuff, huh?
