July 4th at the Aquarium

We went to the Texas State Aquarium for the 4th of July fireworks display.  It's a front row seat as the fireworks are launched from the deck of the Lexington. This year all the kids and grandkids were able to go.  It is quite a spectacle, lots of people, but as usual the McQueens made everything easy with their planning and saving enough space for all of us.  A great time was had by all!

Cheese puffs for everyone!

First Birthday for #5

#5 had his Birthday party Saturday.  Can't believe it has been a year already.  He is walking and is very independant about where he wants to go, wanting no help or guidance in his path.  Pretty soon he'll be running with the herd of cousins.  Here are some photos from the party.  Cousin Kaylee's slide show is also included.

Nice party

Cousin from Houston.

We have not figured out the taxonomy for cousins but are working on it.  We don't like to put names on the blog, unless of course, they are experienced bloggers like Kaylee.

Father's Day at G & B

We suprised Booger and Grannny on Father's day by moving the "resort" to their yard.  There were strong bonds formed between cousins when G&B had a pool in their yard.  We are hoping for the same closeness in this generation of cousins as the last.  G&B's pool is long gone, but the memories last forever.  Even though the "resort" is smaller than the old pool, right now the cousins are also, but the fun is still big.

Pool to pool action!

Chillin' out!
