Cousins, Cabela's, and the Bunny

On Sunday, my sister Jen brought her daughters, and the cousins got reacquainted.

Alyssa has been talking for weeks about seeing Quincy, but that's because she hadn't met McKenna yet. I still think of Alyssa as my baby, and when I see her with a real baby, I'm amazed how big she is.

Here is Anna with Adrianne and Sera. Everybody is just growing and growing.

And here is the whole crew set out for dinner.

Yesterday Alyssa went to the dentist. She had one tooth pulled and another got a crown. She had a "purple nose" for doing the nitrous oxide. It smells like grape.

The next time I take Alyssa to the dentist, I think I'm going to need the nitrous!

She was excited to go to bed last night. She said the "bunny" was coming. I explained that the Easter Bunny only came at Easter, and she was expecting a visit from the Tooth Fairy.

Tonight we went to Cabela's. After we took our turns at the shooting gallery, I thought it would be fun to look at some of the camping gear. Anna took the opportunity to announce very loudly that she didn't like nature and the outdoors.

At that point security escorted us from the building.

Not really, but I wouldn't have blamed them if they had.
