My sister in law Maureen and niece Kenzie came to visit last week. We had lots of fun going to the children's discovery museum, going to Great America, shopping, and eating lots of good meals out. Maureen even planted me a beautiful garden.
The children's discovery museum:
Gnome homes at the museum. I am pretty sure the guy who was in charge of this area of the museum was related to Napoleon Dynamite because he looked and sounded just like him and he took his job REALLY seriously. He told me all about being a boy scout and how he knew how to collect things like this:
Kenzie on the walk to Great America:
Kenzie went on the chair lift by herself. She said it wasn't scary because she had been on a plane which goes way higher. She was even brave enough to go on her first roller coaster, however I think that it might also have been her last.
You can barely see her car in this picture.
Orange loves our new garden. Thanks Maureen!
We decided to take a walk to the park the last day they were here. Ignore our very random clothes. We had just gotten out of our church clothes and we hadn't planned on going anywhere or seeing anyone.
A few weeks ago the boys made their first trip to southern California to visit my family. They traveled over 1000 miles in one week and they were so good in the car. They had a hard time being away from home and daddy at first but they got better by the end of the week.
I first visited my siblings and their families in Los Angeles.
Liam, their cousin Tommy, and Reece loving some cousin time!
They were due 2 days apart, however Tommy surprised us all and was born a month before the twins. These boys are going to have so much fun because they have two cousins, one on each side of the family, that are born within a month of them.
What it would look like to have triplets in a minivan.
My 3 year old niece Ella was a great babysitter for Reece.
We then met my mom and drove down to visit my beautiful sister Kim and her boys in San Diego.
My nephew Jake and Reece. He is so good with kids. Jake's good with kids, too.
Next we went to Ventura to visit my parents. Liam thought Grandpa was pretty funny.
My BFF Jennifer and my second family got to meet the boys.
I took the babies to their very first art museum. My friend Megan and I went to the Triton in Santa Clara which was having a printmaking exhibit. I was pretty excited since my emphasis in college was printmaking.
Liam's smug artist face.
Reece takes art very seriously...
I think the old lady sitting at the front dest didn't like the babies laughing so loud but oh well, the museum was pretty much empty. She followed us and gave us dirty looks.
