Family Week

We had some visitors this week!  My Sister-in-law braved the long-long drive (12 hours), with no co-pilot, with all 4 kids, to stay with us for the week.  I'm so glad she did though!

'The Kid' loves having kids, especially cousins, around.  Lady Chan loves it too as 'The Kid' spends less time following Mommy around whining and more time playing and happily distracted.

Lady M had a good time watching Downton Abby.  Hahaha!  I've suckered another one into it.  (The MB is half-way through).  She managed to get to the beach a couple of times and fly kites.  Sadly 'The Kid' came down with a bad fever...etc., so we didn't go with them.

But we DID do some other fun things while they were here.

The pictures:

I love seeing kids playing in the yard.  They seemed to put the swing-set to good use.  It goes un-used for too long.

Playing 'Spider' on the swing...

BBQ Night!  I love firin' up the 'ol Bar-B.  

...and S'MORES!!!!

Santa Barbara Zoo!  Always a good time.

A great week.  A very ACTIVE week.  So happy to have family come and visit.  Come one come all.  Just not right away.  Let me get the sheets done first!


  1. Doug was jealous that gramma went with ya'll to the zoo - he wanted to be in on that party! Looks like fun. : )

  2. The Zoo day was perfect too. And the lions which normally keep a low-pro were front and center.
