Uncle Dave and Aunt Katie

My brother, Dave and his wife, Katie came to visit us on Friday and we had a great time. Thanks for coming to visit!! Friday we took them to Old Town Spring to walk around and check out the shops. It was fun and we were able to make it out of there just as the rain was pouring down. Katie and I were on our way to the car (Paul and Dave wanted to look in the pepper shop before we left) as the rain started to fall. We ran to the van and drove back to pick up Dave and Paul from the pepper shop. While we were quite wet, Dave and Paul were a little wet. After we picked up Nathan and Kayla from school, we came home to go for a swim in the pool. Once we arrived at the pool and we were all getting ready to jump in the water the lifeguards informed us that there was thunder so we would have to wait 20 minutes before we were allowed in the water. While we waited we chatted with the lifeguards and harassed them about when we could get in the pool. We were like six 4 years olds on a long car ride continuously asking, "Are we there yet?" After waiting for what seemed like forever we were allowed in the water. WE swam for a little over an hour and I think that all of the harassment hat they received worked because while we were in the water they never made us get out even when there was thunder. After the pool we headed back to teh house to get cleaned up and eat dinner and play for a little longer. Once the kids were in bed we played some Rummikub and talked of Big Foot.

Waiting and waiting...

Saturday morning began at 7:30 and we were all so ready to play. Uncle Dave fell asleep on the sofa with Madeline at 7:35 while the rest of us got ready for the day and made breakfast. After breakfast we sat around played, painted toe nails and discussed what to do with the rest of the day. We decided to go to the Children's Museum downtown for the day. This was our first time there and had a good time. it was really clean and the toys were kept cleaned up and tidy. I can safely say that everyone had a good time even the adults enjoyed playing on the toys. It is definitely somewhere we will go back to, someday!! After the museum we headed to get some lunch and do some shopping, then it was off to the house to relax and play some more games.

Sunday morning we went to church and came home for breakfast. After breakfast we went to the pool where we played for a couple of hours and there was no thunder which was a good thing. After the pool everyone was exhausted. Well, everyone except Nathan. Nathan talked Uncle Dave into playing guns with him and there were Nerf bullets flying all over the house. While they had a gun fight Kayla and Emily napped Katie cuddled with Madeline and eventually fell asleep with her. There is just something about babies, they pull out all of your energy and make you want to sleep. Then it was dinner and ice cream and one last game of Hi-Ho Cheerio, in which Aunt Katie finally won a game!! Then it was time to say good-bye and take them to the airport. We had a great time with you both and look forward to seeing you two again, soon!!!
