Family Reunion in KC

From NY we went to visit my other side of the family in Kansas City. Fortunately our camera met us there.
Hey Mom, why is everyone calling this a birdie
Ah hah! I caught my cousin Sarah with my birdie.
A game of volley ball is evidently traditional at the reunion. They said I could be the ball, but I passed on that one.
Oh my, are we related?
These are the good genes in the family. Obviously I got these.
No dad, you did not get the good genes, I did.
We decided to head down to the lake to check out the fishing.
Mom says I can fish next time, but for now I can only be the bait. I passed on that one too.
Soon the paparazzi showed up. Hey check out the matching jerseys
Uhh, those don't match so much. Everyone gets their group photo, but again dad was slacking on the camera duty so this is the only one we have.
Then all the 1st cousins get together. Wow there sure are a lot.
Then all the 2nd cousins get together. Why am I the youngest. Obviously mom and dad are late bloomers.
Then there are 3rd cousins. There sure are a lot of cousins!
After the reunion we went swimming.
I don't think that is how you wear that?
Dad was afraid I would get burned so they lathered me in sun tan lotion. Umm, a bit over done don't you think.
I was NOT happy about that.
What on earth have you done to my hair.
I practiced my kick board with grandma.
Then off to the showers.
Oooooo. This sure was a fun trip.

My Trip to NY

Mom and dad took me to NY to see my family. Of course they forgot to bring the camera, but dad's phone ended working out OK.

We stopped off on our way to Bear Mountain to look at the Hudson River.
Here we are at the bridge we crossed to get to the park.

We then detoured to West Point. Wow, now that is one big truck. What's that funny thing on the front?

Boy travelling is hard work. I had no idea.
We spent another day at the Bronx Zoo. Hey, I know this guy, aren't you from Peru?

Ummm, I don't think this guy is from Peru. I wouldn't want to get to close to him, he looks mean.
HEY! What did I say about getting too close!

Here I am hanging out with my cousins. We had a great trip...next time don't forget the camera dad.
