Ben and Coopers weekend with Gramma and Papa (and cousins)

The best thing about Mom's new job is the flying privileges.  When she needed a sitter for the boys, it is just a couple of flights to get to Gramma's house.  Since they had to fly unaccompanied, their dad had to fly with them from Bethel to Anchorage. They were able to fly from Anchorage to Seattle and Papa picked them up at the airport. We had a great weekend and saw most of the cousins.  Sadly, I did not get all of the pictures I wanted to.  I headed out with my camera once on Saturday to catch some of the action with Gae cousins but was distracted and did not get back out.  They will be back for a longer visit in June, hopefully, and we will get to spend more cousin time together and get more pictures.  Cooper was so anxious to go to the beach, but I told him we would save it for a warmer summer day.  Just because it was warm to this little Alaskan, we down here just did not think it was warm enough for a dip in the lake!
The shoes came off and stayed off until it was time to put them back on and head to the airport.
If Coop did not have to wear them, than neither did Olivia.

They could hardly wait until

They could head off to Brystan's house 

Bry lives just two blocks from Gramma

This is a rock pile in the common area of our neighborhood.
Olivia is not allowed down there alone.   She was so happy to have a cousin here and have her reigns lengthened a  little.

Mom was in training most of the week, but took a few days to go to Vegas with some friends from their old hometown.
A week is a long time, no matter how old you are.

Yep, Coop missed his mom too.

Bye, Gramma will see you in a couple of weeks

I really like that picture of Coop and Livvy. I think he needs a paper copy of it to put in a frame in his room.
