This week we had my cousin Breeze and her 4 cute kids come down from Montana to stay with us! It was WONDERFUL!! I love Breeze and also wanted to steal her children lol  j/k on the stealing part Breeze ;) It was tons of fun! We went to the beach a couple days -obviously not as good as the real deal but it made our kids pretty happy

 I know that's a lot of Ash pics but she was just being so cute!  She's a water baby for sure :)  We had movie nights hung around the house And visited the zoo! from left to right: Matthew (5), Grey (4), Charlie (2), Law (6), Noah (4), Madilyn (8), and Ashtyn (2) We had our hands full, but it was a great success -not one got lost! :)

Breeze and I also had a chance to party it up at my friend's bachelorette party we went to The Cheesecake Factory and then did some dancing after All-in-all it was a great trip I love getting together with my Montana family I hardly EVER get to see them!
