Visiting Grandparents

Friday and naptime we traveled to Grandma and Grandpa's for a long visit. Mike went back to California and I drove to Utah alone. Next week he has work meetings. I didn't want to be alone while he was gone so we went to my parents for the week.

Aunty Rori had so much fun combing Jaileigh's hair. Here she is with her first pigtails.

Anthony with his sad puppy dog eyes

Great-grandma Kolleen flew in from Idaho to visit us. She is my grandmother and the kids great grandma. The quads called them Grandma 1 and Grandma 2. Grandma 1 was whichever grandma was home or in the room, Grandma 2 was the other Grandma. By the end of Grandma Kolleen's visit they were calling her Gama Keen.

They discovered Grandpa's 4-wheeler.

Jake loved "dribing"!

Jaileigh was NOT impressed.

Rori got their shades for them. I don't know if she wanted them to look cool or if the sun was just really bright.

Rori and Annie.

Annie loved her glasses. She just grinned the whole time she had them on.

I think Jake looks pretty worn out.

The die hards wouldn't get off the 4-wheeler. They loved playing on it.

Jaileigh and one of her rare smiles.

Annie found a box to play in.

Hanging out with Grandma and Grandpa

Can you tell they love her?

Annie discovered TV. At our house the TV's hang on the wall. This was a whole new world for my kids.

Viva Las Vegas

On Thursday we headed out of town. We went to Vegas and stayed with Grandpa/Uncle Joe and Kathy. The kids always call Joe "Gampa" even though he is really their uncle. I think he really likes it but he pretends that he doesn't.

Thursday we ate at the buffet again and then went to a park by Joe's house. Our friend Kristen met us there. I didn't get any pictures though.

The boys after a long day of traveling and playing.

We went to the park again on Friday morning.

Joe and the boys

Annie and Jake. She loves slides and tries to climb up them.



"Mommy we found a chicken" I was scared to death it was a dead bird and sent Mike running down to check on them. It was a dead baseball. The had the best time throwing the "chicken" around. They thought it was hilarious.

After Jake fell in the mud and removed his clothes, they ended the park session by chasing the birds. You would think after all the running they did that they would sleep for days.

On Monday the weather was so nice that I let the kids play in the water outside.

Michael joined the other two boys and they all decided to take off their wet clothes.

Jaileigh joined in the fun too but she didn't like getting wet.

Annie didn't like getting wet either but liked playing with the shovels.

Annie showing her new teeth.

Jaileigh giving a funny look to someone.

Eating her mac n cheese and corn in style. I love how she puts her foot up.

Jaileigh was so excited I was going to turn the jumper on.

Jake was excited too!
