A Visit from my Nieces

Last week, my sister-in-law Kimberly and her three girls came to visit. They, along with Todd's brother Tim, were in Canada for an extended visit while the kids were off school for the summer. Unfortunately, Tim had to return to England for work, but we had the great pleasure of having the girls at our house for a few days.

Kate had a great time playing with Lily-Ann and Alexandra, above. The girls went swimming together and enjoyed the new dinosaur exhibit at the museum. Julia was happy to take care of the littlest cousin, Teaghen. They even got matching bears when we went for an outing at Build-a-Bear. We got the opportunity to wish Teaghen a belated happy birthday. She'd turned four just a few weeks ago.

Julia and Kate were glad to also have the time with their Aunt Kimberly, who always lavishes lots of attention on them. All the girls were so well behaved that Todd, Kimberly and I managed to have some time off on our own too. We sadly said farewell after a too-short visit but look forward to seeing them again soon.
