We arrived a little after noon and immediately went to Mom and Dads house. Karen and her boys stopped in a few minutes later. It gave Mom and Dad a little time to acclimate with our kids. Emma took to Mom pretty quick after a few tickles and giggles. After a few hours, we went over and got checked in at the Best Wetsern, where Mom had set us up in rooms with Kenny and his kids next door and Karen and her boys in the next room. It had an outside pool and a diner right there, so we were set.
The kids went in the pool that night and swam with their cousins. It still took some time to get them down that night, they were so hyped-up.
Jacob and his cousin Madison (Maddy), they are like brother and sister.
Real-life brother and sister Maddy and John Tyler (Kenny's kids).
