This past week we had the girls oldest cousin Ray with us for a few days. We took him on a few adventures and he was bossed around for 2 days straight by two little girls that love him. Olivia demanded she be carried only by Ray (I was no longer the favorite-my back thanks him) and Abby had fun playing with somebody older who could keep up (or is faster) with her vs. her little baby sister.
What I learned while he was visiting-I saw a glimpse of what is to come in the future as my kids get older. 1. Older kids don't take naps = NO break during the day 2.

What my girls learned while Ray was visiting. 1. How to hold your breath in the car as we drive past a cemetery. 2. Punch buggy red no punches back! 3. If I scream loud enough and cry- Ray will do anything we want him to do.
