Family Fun

I'm spending this week with family and friends and thought I'd share a few pictures of past fun.  I'm thankful to be able to hang out with people I love all of the time.  I'm thankful for an amazing family and wonderful friends too.  :-)  God has blessed me richly.

This was a Christmas gift - recommended by a friend.  Its been a fun new activity.  Its a slackline.  Its basically a huge stretchy line that you try to balance on and walk across.  (And if you get really good, you can bounce, and sit and to tricks.  We aren't anywhere close to doing that!)  Its much harder than it looks.  
Dress up and pretending have always been something my children enjoyed.  It makes for great photos too.  This is our little princess.
Batman.  Love the creativity my boys displayed in making this costume.  For those that know my boys, can you tell who this is?
Game time is a treat.  I'm glad that my children all enjoy playing - some more than others though.  Its always fun to be with friends.
Recently tried fingerpainting with Eliana and she was so tentative at first.  Just one finger in the paint.  She enjoyed it though.  Can't you just see it in her face?  She also tried it with her whole hand in the paint too.  It was just fun to see her doing this - and several of her brothers joined in too.  Reminded me that I need to take more time to get out craft supplies and give them opportunities to create and get messy.

What has your family been doing for fun lately?
