Nieces and Nephews!

Immediately following the concert last Friday, we headed out of town to see family! Melissa, my oldest sister, and her family were visiting from Prague! I don’t get to see her all that often (you can read about the last time I saw her in June here), but we have a great time when we do see each other! This was my first time to meet my newest nephew and oh my gracious… he was precious! Love his chubby little cheeks!

Four of my six nieces and nephews! Aren’t they all just so precious? Love ’em!

We took the kids to the park so they could all play. They had such a great time! Check out Uncle Christopher taking turns swinging the kids back and forth in the top left picture. And also the shot of Christopher with my dad and two of my nieces.

Speaking of Uncle Christopher… I captured a few video seconds of the kiddos playing with him at the park. This jump-into-his-arms game lasted for ages. It wasn’t until a good bit after other kids from the park (that we didn’t even know!) joined the line that Christopher finally had to call it quits before his arms gave out.

Please note: despite Makenzie’s squeals, no children were hurt in the making of this clip. πŸ˜‰

They’re all so cute even when they are silly!

Haha! I love the shot of Katka sitting on Kenzie… too funny!

Christopher & I with Melissa & Matus and their two kiddos Marek & Katka (Melissa is holding Marek and I’ve got Katka) plus Wesley & Kenzie (my sister, Holly’s kiddos).

I would’ve loved it if my other two sisters, my brother-in-law, my brother, and my other niece and nephew could’ve made it, but getting so many schedules to match up is really difficult. The last time all five of us kids were together was in 2008 and we’ve had two new baby additions since then! πŸ™‚ Anyway, it was a super short, but super great weekend! Looking forward to her next trip here!

  3. Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance

    That’s so sweet you had an opportunity to spend time with your family, even if a couple people couldn’t make it. My family is pretty small so it’s fairly easy to get us all together at once, but sometimes I wish I had more members! haha

  5. This sounds like a great day!! I love the photos, and I literally laughed out loud watching that video and thinking about random children jumping into Christopher’s arms.

  22. I hope I have nieces and nephews one day! I like the idea of spoiling them then giving the back πŸ˜›

  23. Aww this is adorable! I love spending time with my niece and I have a nephew on the way, can’t wait to meet him.

  24. How adorable!! Ya my sister moves to texas about a year and a half ago so I havent seen my nephew in what seems like FOREVER! Its driving me nuts. But they are coming out here in June and I couldnt be more excited!! πŸ™‚

  28. Looks like such a fun time! And yes, those chubby cheeks seriously made me melt…! I can’t imagine only seeing family so seldom ~ it must be extra special every time you do see them, but I feel like it would be hard as well. I’m really spoiled to live relatively close to pretty much all of my family!

  29. Oh they are all so adorable!! What a wonderful family you have! Maybe before to long all of you will be able to get together again.

  30. Soooo adorable! Children are amazing and so precious!
