My sister Saren and her family came for a visit over MLK weekend. She and her husband have five kids who were all born in a five year span. Man oh man have they had a busy few years, but their cute twins are now three and are starting to do well on road trips so they came to see us. (Dave wasn't about to go on a road trip with Lucy screaming all the way to see them...I mean, he loves them and all, but there's only so far that love can stretch when it means dealing in an enclosed area for hours with a crazy two-year-old screaming and kicking your seat.)
Anyway, our kids were over the moon about it. (Well, I have to admit, Dave and I sure had a great time with them too).
Among other things, Saren and I took the younger ones to this awesome new children's museum downtown while the dads took the older kids to the rec. center. We also got to spend some time with my brother who teaches school at this place close to where we live. It's a charter school that deals with agriculture stuff so it was like going to a petting zoo for the kids. They were in Heaven.Nanny McPhee:I know I've mentioned this before, but boy howdy is my brother ever a great teacher. The kids were loving his reading place for his kids in his room:
He also hosted a great indoor "drive-in" movie on his new big screen tv for the kids complete with home-made cookies fresh out of the oven...and the kids loved exploring his house. Thanks Josh!
FHE on Sunday:Man I am so darn lucky to be sandwiched in between these two in my family.
They have both taught me so much. Thanks for making it such a great weekend, guys!
