Wilder can't get enough of the cousins. He hasn't napped in 2 days and goes to bed at 7pm because he's just too busy playing with the kids. I love seeing our kids grow and witnessing relationships blossoming.
Like a boxer, Wilder would ask Brian for juice or milk between rounds of trampoline bouncing with the cousins. Satiated, he'd bound back up the steps to have another go at it.
Kaeli, the dramatist of the King family. Watch out, folks, this girl may be a future President -or cruiseline activities coordinator.
Wesley, contemplative as he awaits Wilder and the bouncing balls. I could take this kid home.
Watch out, Aravis is in hog heaven! This serious little girl is such a unique character -as are all of my sister's beautiful children. I am amazed at how different each of the 6 are -completely unique and totally different, but all a beautiful bundle of joy.
Uncle Bebo is an excellent kid watcher, helper and all around fun guy.
We took a trip to the San Diego Wild Animal Park where we fit right in. The tortoise gave Aravis a fright and she ran to Crystal, "Turtle, scary! Mama, turtle scary!"
Wesley and the flamingos.
Life is real.
See that lady with the six kids, bravely and happily jaunting through the park? That's my sister. She's AMAZING. And this sort of adventure doesn't phase her, not one bit.
I love her.
Waiting to see the acrobats from Tanzania.
Wesley came over and sat next to me during the show. "Those guys are amazing! But they can do that stuff because they're robots."
"No, they're real people -they're not robots."
"No, they're robots. Real people can't do that."
There was no convincing him, but I thought it was pretty darn funny.
Crystal and Zaccai, who have spent some time in Malawi, spoke a bit with this performer in his native language. Cultcha, Cultcha!
Who's the master of his own destiny?
We had loads of fun!
