Grandmas, grandmas, and more grandmas!

And we can't leave out an aunt! For the last week, we have had family visiting!! My mom and sister came last Tuesday and left Sunday morning. That same weekend (on Saturday) Christian's mom and grandma arrived at our house and stayed until Tuesday! We have had a house full, but loved every minute of it!! On Wednesday, we enjoyed a day at the pool with the boys. We watched them swim while we caught some rays and then enjoyed a refreshing sno cone! Thursday, we made a trip to Kearney, Ne to do some much needed shopping. Friday, we spent the day lounging around and that night made our way to our county fair to see the animals eat yummy food, and go on rides, followed by some game playing at home. Saturday we had a picnic in the park where we fed the ducks and waited for the arrival of Christian's mom and grandma that night. The rest of our activities with Grandma Asay and Grandma Dorthy will have to be another post!

Swimming away!

Playing with sidewalk chalk. We had the most colorful sidewalk and driveway in the neighborhood!!

Enjoying some hop scotch

Fun at the Redwillow County Fair!

The boys enjoying a drink from the lovely community drinking fountain! It was quite gross because people would come and cover up the other spouts with their fingers to make it so that they would have more pressure for their spout...gross!

As we were leaving the fair, we saw the mechanical bull and my sister and Christian decided they needed to see who could ride the longest/best. They ended up getting a deal and Carson got to ride too! He loved it and the man running the bull did a great job of making it just right for Carson.

Ever wonder that happens when a guy with really hairy legs rides a mechanical bull? Well, this is what happens...the hair on your legs gets knotted up into tiny balls! Really funny!!

Afternoon picnic in the park!

It was fun to have you here mom and Megan! We love you guys!

Family visits are the best! I have to agree that the picture of Christian's leg is pretty funny! Glad you had a fun few days with your mom and sister!

So exciting to have family come! Love the bull riding shots.

The hairy legs picture made us crack up. Adam says that he may have to look into playing hop scotch in nothing but a diaper because it may help improve his skills.

Stacey said...

Grandma Arlene said...
