California Cousins + Texas Cousins = Lots Of Fun!

The Sanchez family came all the way from California to visit us here in Texas! Amy brought her three kids (Nathan, Tyler, and Mia) all by herself (bless her heart as we say here in the South). Initially I was worried that there wouldn't enough to do or that I had to plan some spectacular activity but that wasn't necessary. We had so much fun just being together. Archer and his cousins all lived within 10 square miles and hardly a week went by that they didn't see each other. They even went to the same Preschool.

 Here is an early picture of the boys together. Back row L-R: Tristan Plummer, Owen Calder, and Nathan Sanchez (who was having a hard time with the fact that his new brother was here to stay). Front Row L-R: Jack Plummer, Archer Calder (looking at Nathan and hoping that the new sibling thing never happens to him), and Tyler Sanchez. Oh, and on the right is the lovely Amy Sanchez...

 These three boys were all born in 2004. L-R Jack Plummer (who looks about 5 minutes old), Archer Calder (who was 7 months and 70 lbs), and Tyler Sanchez (who was 4 months old)...

Archer keeps this picture in his room. L-R Jack Plummer, Archer Calder, and Nathan Sanchez.


Archer not being able to see his cousins was one of the hardest things about moving halfway across the country. When the Sanchez family pulled up to our house it was like no time had passed at all! I did feel bad about one thing, it was so HOT! But the heat made playing in the water a lot more fun.

Mia picking tomatoes. Notice the shoes...






Thank goodness for the pool!

Mia is so cute but she has a killer "pouty" face that will pretty much make you give her what ever she wants. Watch out!

 Tyler explaining to his mom all of the reasons he would prefer not to go in the pool. About one minute after I took this shot his mom pulled him in anyway...

Love this one of Miss Mia...

 This is how you look when you have already had cancer and you feel like the sun is poisonous...



 Tyler said he hates being photographed in the morning...

Della pretty much bossed all the boys around as they played Wii...
 We had so much fun and it was so hard to say goodbye. There were plenty of tears shed by all, especially by the kids. Thanks for visiting Sanchez Family!

Aww... That brought tears to my eyes. The kids bawled all the way to the airport. They were just heart broken! We will be back! Tyler wants to steal the chickens eggs again.
