My littlest sister, Abby, and her 2 boys came for the weekend! :) My girls had such a great time holding her 3 month old baby and just playing with her boys!
Friday before they came, instead of cleaning the house for our company ;) Thomas, Kierra and I went and played at the park with some friends! I was so glad to get out of the house that day, even though I knew we had tons to do. I needed an "it's the weekend...relax!" moment! I sure love these two!
Friday night our family went and did smores with friends. It was late and dark so I didn't get pictures! :( But Abby got into town in time to meet them. We then went home and relaxed for the first part of Saturday morning. Thomas had been up in the night, so Matt decided to stay home with him for the day while the rest of us played! Abby and I went to the temple and out to lunch and then we grabbed the kids and headed to Salt Lake.
The church history museum again!! :) I know I just posted about this place not too long ago, but we love it! We really will take anyone here and to the rest of temple square. Abby and her family seemed to enjoy it! :) The "God's Plan For His Family" video just gets better every time we see it! I can not seem to find online anything about the video, but just go into the North Visitor's Center and ask the sweet sisters to see this video (which is more than a video...you go from the mountains to a baby's room to Grandma's etc....it's so well done)! Anyway, here are a few pictures from the museum.
For our little cousin the highlight of the trip was the "train"! We rode the trax for just a couple of stops and back and that was all this little man needed in life! The rest of the day was fun, but OH the train! :) We had such a great time with Abby and her little boys! We hope it was worth the drive for her to come all that way without her hubby. We sure love them and hope they come again soon!
Abby left Sunday afternoon and later that night we went to Heber to stay the night with cousins and visit Grandma and Grandpa. We played some "Foisy" Rook and then the boys got out the guitars. We all slept in our tent which I should have taken a picture of because that might be our only "camping" experience this year. Sad, but true. We did other fun things, but next summer we will be better at making camping a priority!
Does three times make a tradition? This is our third year going to the Sheepdog Championships at Soldier Hollow and it is such a great day! The kids come with us Monday morning and run around to pet the animals and get free toys and candy. At lunch time we take them back into Heber and then the adults come back to watch for the rest of the afternoon! The whole thing is amazing! The way the sheep flock together, the way the dog and his handler communicate! It never gets old! We are all more amazed every year! Hopefully next year we'll have lots of friends watching it with us! We keep trying to recruit! ;)
It was a great Labor Day weekend and also a small reminder that summer is really done.
So many friends and family started school today and we've been in for a couple of weeks so that means that fall is here...wait! We officially have until the 23rd! Nevermind! We'll still go to the park today and play! :)
