Kado is now NINE years old, and Feintsje is now SEVEN.
The two "cousins" from our side of the family, Hertsje and Broeder, are still on a family vacation with their "other" cousins, but there were no shortage of cousins from Son-in-laws side of the family. He is the oldest of six. I think these kids are going to have many cousins to go through life with, which I think is wonderful, as my cousins meant so much to me growing up!
This is Famke with the youngest of her girl cousins. There are three other girl cousins, one who lives in Georgia. They got to see her a few weeks ago.
This guy knows his way around a grill.
There was a TON of great food.
Oh, and he also built a table just the day before the party.
A table that comfortably seats fourteen.
This man has so many fantastic skills, one of them being a terrific father to his four children.
One lives about an hour north of me, and the other about an hour south, so it is always great when we get to see them and their families.
I cannot begin to tell you how excited her three sons were to finally have a BOY cousin on that side of the family.
I love this dog so much.
He is a sweetheart.
|THE BIRTHDAY BOYS!|
But he certainly did perk up for the party!
Even he knows a good party when he sees one.
I had two bites.
|Cousins AND Best Friends!|
The cake was so good!
In the back ground you can see my brother-in-law and his grandson, Great Nephew. He was excited to see Kado, now that they are BOTH nine.
It used to bother Kado that Great Nephew ALWAYS got to be a year older before he did.
One year, Kado even decided that it would be more fair if HE got to have his birthday first
By now though, Kado has figured out how that all works.
Son-in-law's Brother with his son.
It was fun to zoom in on these cuties without having them stick their hands in front of their faces!
They come from about an hour east of us.
See what I mean about Son-in-law and Daughter hosting great parties?
People truly come from all over just to go to their parties!
She is Great Nephews mom.
She also came from about an hour north of us.
We shall be having two more summer birthday parties for grandchildren.
Broeder, who is now FIVE, and Famke who will be ELEVEN in one month!
