Poxleitner cousins

After a leisurely morning at Tyler and Laura's house, we drove to the Drake family's home. Wendi is Joe's cousin. She and her husband, John, have an adorable daughter, Taylor, and with both of us having small children, we just don't get to see each other often enough. We last saw them a few Easters ago when Natalie was still Andie and just a bit older than Taylor is now.
 
We spent the entire afternoon visiting, playing and eating pizza. We had so much fun we all skipped afternoon naps. Hey, you have to live it up once in awhile!

Taylor was a charmer. At 15 months, she wasn't quite sure how to engage the big kids. She proved she could hold her own by rolling her arms (as in "Roll it and pat it" from Pattycake) to show them just how cool she was. When we left, Sam and ND wanted to know why Taylor couldn't be "our sister".

John and Wendi still had Halloween candy leftover and Sam was delighted to get this candy eye. He must get that love of eyes from his Grandma Dori.

Henry even snuggled with Wendi a little, who is already missing those sweet days of snuggly babyhood as Taylor is starting to enter toddlerhood. I know my days of fat babyhood are numbered, too!
