Patrick's Family Visits

Last Saturday (yes, almost a week ago...I got a lot goin' on), Patrick's family drove to my parents' house for a visit.  We had such a nice time together.  Here is Damien (husband to Patrick's sister, Brooke) and their daughter, Taylor. 



Adeline giving kisses to her cousin, Madison (3 1/2 months younger, but the same size as Addie).


Pat with his brother, Bob

Bob with Madison (doesn't she look a lot like Adeline?)

We played a rousing game of croquet.  My dad knocked me into the pole at the very end to send me out of the game (and you said I was mean...)

Okay, since my dad rarely comments on this blog he probably won't tell you that I first tried to knock him into the pole and missed.  hmm....it seems I really am mean....

Oh the memories! We had a croquet set when I was young and played all the time. We tease my sister yet about the time she broke a stick because she was mad. We were knocking her ball out all the time (We were meaner than you are!)

How fun to have the family together!

So you have an Addie and a Maddie? Fun! And fun they look so much alike, too.

My cousin Erin and I are only 4 mos apart and we remain close to this day!

you guys sound like you have a great time together and being mean is just a part of healthy family fun. :P i could tell you some stories on my dad's side of the family, the irish side, man, they were mean to each other, but it's so funny to hear about it. do you have irish blood by chance? :)

OK, so I'll say what everyone has already said, but those two cousins look more like sisters! Looks like you all had a great day of visiting.
