Camping With the Extended Family

I have to admit that I was not especially looking forward to toting a not-quite-two-year-old to the woods and spending a night in a tent without electricity in July in Arkansas. But I was looking forward to seeing Greg’s family, so we came up with an escape plan just in case the toddler thing didn’t work out. ;-)
It really was great seeing everyone. I loved watching the cousins play together. We enjoyed swimming in the lake. Greg’s brother-in-law, Jimmy, cooked a fine fried chicken dinner with the works. We even wound up staying the night in the tent, though we slept very little.

Juju really took to his cousin MM! She toted him around like a baby doll.

I think Caveman tried to monopolize Aunt Catie’s time as usual.

Juju also went with Uncle Steve for a walk…he was persuaded by Uncle Steve letting him hold the doggie leash.

And he let his cousin T hold him. When MM saw, she said “Hey! That’s MY baby!” lol
Of course Gem stuck to Reesie like glue.
