Sunday Fun Day and a Game of Croquet

All of my little cousins {minus one} were around this weekend. So just like the "good old days" we spent Sunday afternoon at Grandpa and Grandma's house.

My cousins...well, you have to understand this about them, they're the most competitive and loud group on earth.

When we got there, they were playing Monopoly.
The Little Lady quickly jumped right into the middle of the action.

After lunch, it was time for an afternoon of croquet.
Croquet...a nice game made very interesting with all of the loud, competitive, cheating personalities.

Jake's the ring leader.
His mission is to prime the Little Lady to be just like him.
They're well on their way.

The Little Lady...
With a mallet...


How many big cousins can we fit in the pool?!?

I'll admit, I'm ultra-competitive {and maybe just a little bit loud}, but I pretty much watched from the sidelines yesterday.  I had my prodigy to fill my shoes : )

It sure was a fun day!  Made me miss the times when this Sunday afternoon was the norm, rather than a special occasion.
