We actually had an evening of not-110-degree-weather and so we all (Amy & Jim's family, ours, and G. Cyndee) ventured out to the nearby park for some good old-fashioned fun: baseball. Most of the kids preferred running around like maniacs or rolling down the hill (Princess Bride style), but we got a few to participate. . .
I can't begin to tell how much fun these cousins
had together that week! The park was especially fun, but maybe that's because Megan and I were in our own little M&M world (that's what mom called us as children) as our high school silliness overcame us. We often get that way when we are together -- silly.
Me trying to "help" Megan do her back bend. Finally we realized (better yet remembered) that I am a weakling and could not possibly catch her if she fell. So she resorted to starting on the ground and did fabulous on her own without my help.
I can do a cartwheel, but I will not even try this!
Megan does lots of yoga and pilates. I have just started yoga so I don't think my body would agree with this position very well, but maybe some day...
...then again, maybe not.
Megan convinced me to do this. It would not be a good idea to post the picture of me actually hanging upside down because my shirt came untucked and I do not edit photos very well. So, I will spare you all the underclothing peep show. Nate was close by (I think it made him nervous), ready and poised to save the day in case I fell. I didn't, but it was nice to have a knight in shining armour at hand.
Possibly the best picture I have ever seen of Megan!
I love it!
So, here's to you, Megan -- You're a great sister!
