Fun at Uncle Johns

As we head into a week of drywall texturing, we did take a break and visit Mark's brother, John, and his family in Morgan Hill. Their sister Karen was out for a conference, so it was a nice time for 3 of the 8 kids to visit together.

Mark and John are "Irish twins", meaning they are less than a year apart.



They are very close, and enjoy shooting people together. Of COURSE we wouldn't let our girls watch it though.


Our own twins like to play computer games together too! I loved how this picture shows their big green eyes.


Weather permitting, we always go for a walk in "The Meadow". Aunt Karen was like the Pied Piper.


The whole gang.

The salamanders were out. Mae is always our critter-picker-upper.


She is very clinical and gentle in her examination of the little beastie.


Abigail, on the other hand, shies away from a buckeye with a suspicious looking tentacle.


So you see, even these "identical" twins can be quite different!

We walked a good five miles on our hike, with no complaints, and no requests for piggy back rides (of course, that may be fall-out from last week :-) ) . But we were all impressed with how the girls hung in there. All in all, a wonderful weekend!

Oh, was there a football game of some sort? No wonder the park wasn't very crowded!
