The annual corn roast

One highlight of the summer is the annual corn roast that my mother-in-law's family has every year. It's great to see extended family that we don't see on a regular basis. And Brent and his brother have a standing corn-eating competition which dates back to their teen years when they actually ate more than two or three ears of corn at the corn roast. (Now they just gather up all the corn cobs of those sitting at their respective tables and claim that they ate that many ears of corn!)

Lael and Jaden love seeing their cousins (actually, they are children of Brent's cousins -- so that may make them all second cousins? I guess it doesn't really matter . . . it's easier to just say "cousins".) The kids had so much fun running around and playing together; it took alot to get them to stop and grab a picture:
