our house is filled with cute boys

What could be more fun than spending a few days with these cute boys? Dave's nephew and his little family were in town to visit for a few days. We went over to Encanto Park today. I had forgotten about the "Enchanted Island" Amusement park there. It's definitely geared to young, small, short people. I remember my grandma taking me there when I was small. It was much more "enchanting" when I was small. But Joshua enjoyed the magic and wonder of the helicopter ride and the dragon rollercoaster. Doesn't he look like he's having fun? Good thing the camera wasn't pointed on Chelsea and I. The temperatures were near 100. And it was muggy. And it was near the middle of the day. Ughh. But really, it's always fun to be around kids who are having fun. Besides the little boys being at our house, our girls are bringing some bigger boys over to the house to visit lately. Both Rachel and Roxanne have boyfriends that have been fun to have around the house.
Dave is a natural with a baby on his lap. He's going to be a fun grandpa. He was telling a wild and convoluted story to Nathan. I think even at age one, Nathan was giving Dave the stink eye because he knew that wasn't the regular story written in his book.
How can this baby be so darn cute?
It's probably because his mom is so darn cute too!Fun weekend, crazy family. (Melanie and Rachel -- we all missed you this week!)
