Grandma, Grandpa, and Uncle Mark Hellen

This past weekend Grandma, Grandpa, and Uncle Mark Hellen came for a visit. They arrived Friday night and played with the kids for a few hours before it was time for bed. Nathan was so excited ALL day to play with Uncle Mark, he would change his mind every 10 minutes with a new game to play with Uncle Mark. Madeline tried to stay awake for them, but she fell asleep about 5 minutes before they arrived, after having been awake for 2 hours.
Saturday was a busy day which started with everyone (except Madeline and myself) going to the pond to fish. Madeline and I took a nap on the sofa while they were gone fishin'. The fishing trip was an uneventful one as they caught perch and not much else. Nathan keeps going with the hope of catching an even bigger catfish or even better, another turtle. After the fishing excursion everyone went to the pool for a dip. I was even able to swim this time!! HOORAY!! Once we were all cleaned up we took off for Goodson's Cafe to celebrate Mark's 29th birthday. Mark ordered the chicken fried steak, which was larger than his plate and he was unable to finish. The rest of the day was spent in the house playing games and just relaxing. Sunday started with church and then home for a LARGE breakfast of biscuits and gravy and eggs for the kids. Then it was a lazy day of just playing in the house until it was time for dinner. Grandma Hellen made dinner, I am unable to recall the name of it, but it was comparable to meatloaf on a loaf of bread. She also made a fruit salsa to go with it. It was very good and I enjoyed not having to have to cook. Thank You for cooking!! After one last bite of birthday cake it was time to go to the airport. It was a very nice visit and would have only been better if Sharla Curt, Amy and Avery had been able to make it as well.
