Steve's parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Friday. All of Steve's brothers, sisters-in-law, neices, and nephews came out for the day on Saturday. We grilled steaks and ate corn-on-the-cob and homemade ice cream and had a good time, although it's a tight fit with 18 for dinner! Katherine and her cousin Bethanne (7 months older than Kate) were best pals and ran around shrieking and giggling. They built Lincoln Log houses, read books on the porch, and threw a teddy bear down the laundry chute over and over. Rachel tagged along for a while, but then decided that the older cousins were more interesting. Several cousins are in their 20's and happily dote on her. And they have cell phones! Rae would snuggle close and inquire "Cell phone?" When a cell phone or video game was produced, she would grab it and start pushing buttons, fiercely guarding her new treasure. It was pretty funny to watch!
