We tried SO hard to get a group picture of all the kiddos – I failed miserably!  I hope that someone managed to get a shot!  Here’s the best I got!

Seamus went down this water slide about 687 times.  No joke.

Wow! You got some really fantastic pics!!! I love the pic of Seamus with his Kiss hat! Too cute! I had to laugh at Pres's face with the World's Largest Chocolate Bar! He looked soooo excited! Great pic of all us mama's too!!! Again, laughing because it totally looks like I'm pinching Kim's behind! Had so much fun with you guys! We definitely have to do this again next year!

Wow, I agree with Melissa. You got some really great photos. Sorry we didn't really get a chance to talk much, but seemed like we were on different sides of the park all day. It was great to actually get a chance to meet you though and we look forward to doing it again next year if not something else sooner!!

What great pictures! The Hershey Kiss hat is awesome! Although my favorite is the last one. So glad that you all had a wonderful time together. Wish that we lived closer to join in on the next POLP weekend, but only a little over a month until Nashville! YAY!! Can't wait to meet you guys!

HOW FUN ~ I have yet to meet any LP's Caden's age near us :0( What a special gift for the boys to be able to spend the weekend together! Hooray for a great checkup for Seamus! Cute family pic at Dutch Wonderland :0)

You did great pictures and even the hard to do - group pictures! Kids are delightful !!! thank you for the picture report from the visit with Dr. MacKenzie! We are going to see him on July 8th so it was nice to see the pictures from DuPoint. Big THANKS!!! Love, K

It was so great seeing you guys again this weekend! It's like no time passes! I just love that picture of Seamus with the Kiss hat! Awesome. The boys had such a great time. I cannot deal with how cute they all are together. Adorable. You look fantastic. Hopw to see you guys again some point this summer. Hopefully we can get a lunch or dinner together if you pass through!

We had a great time this weekend too! It was so great to finally meet all of you and Trace is already wanting to dig in the sand with Seamus at the beach! Hopefully he'll be walking much better by then! The water play area of Dutch Wonderland looks awesome too!
