The cousins are coming!

Our California cousins are coming to visit us for a week and we are excited!

I need some creative ideas, bloggy friends. What fun things can I do to keep 5 boys and 1 girl busy for a week??? Here's what we've come up with so far:
-air soft gun wars
-video games (of course, but not too much)
-jamming on instruments together (the CA cousins are very talented)
-strawberry picking

Any ideas to share? Just leave a comment. : )

I think Joy may need a 'girls day out' sometime during this week, bless her heart!!! (5 boys!)

We definitely won't be going to Ci Ci's Pizza while they are here. I might have nightmares!
There were so many of us when we were together last year that we actually 'left a man behind' and it was one of my 'men'! And thankfully we'd only driven across the parking lot when we figured it out. I didn't wait to be driven back across the parking lot either. I'm told that I ran like the Bionic Woman. : ) Oh my goodness! I still shudder thinking about it.

Now, I know how Mary felt. Everyone said Jesus was with his cousins!
-She and I will have something in common in Heaven. ; )

LOL! I love your blog, Becky. I was laughing at your "man left behind." Yes, you sure will have something to chat about with Mary.

Maybe you and Joy could have a baking session together for all those "men." Also, do you live in a neighborhood? Are there neighbors you could trust for a scavenger hunt? Tie dye shirts that each can sign for the other with a permanent marker after? (or assign each their own paint color to make a handprint on each shirt, then sign the handprint later).

Sounds fun (and exhausting). Enjoy!
