Becca Rankin and her daughters, Karis and Gabby, came for a week of visiting, fun, and complete chaos at times, but it was all worth it on this end! We hope we haven't scared them off for good.
The weather was not cooperating, but tolerable, so we were able to sneak away for lunch one day to my favorite Chinese restaurant. We grilled out a few times and Jared and I worked in the garden after Becca helped me pick out a few perrenials for my flowerbeds. It's like the blind leading the blind, but we had fun anyway. ; )
Saturday night, we fed and bathed a tired bunch of monsters and put them to bed and the three of us were able to sneak away to Chili's for dinner and some adult conversation. Thanks to Faith and Kylie for babysitting!
Sunday was a full day of worship, tacos, naps, and finally, the weather cleared enough to head out to Buffalo State Park for a long hike. We enjoyed the fresh air and came home with only one tick! We stopped at Tasty Freeze and got hamburgers and cones for the kids, and came home to relax a bit while we took in the movie, "Baby Mama. " I think all of us girls made it through... kinda of a chick flick!
Here's some pics of our Sunday morning madness. Hasn't this new baby popped this week?! Or so I'm told anyway... Here's one of the lil' girls playing dress-up. They would go from two peas in a pod to completely forgetting the other was there.
