A Visit from the Out-of-towners

Spencer enjoyed his cake.
I know, totally goofy title, but it was the best I could do.  Hyrum's mom and sisters came to visit and two are currently from Texas and the other is living in Utah so everything else I could think of excluded someone.  We were so happy to have Grandma, Sarah and Rachel here.   They all enjoyed our castle suite, complete with mural.  They wrestled, played, read stories and generally entertained the kids for several days.  It was nice to have an extra set of hands to get Spencer of out drawers, out of the bathroom, and generally out of something he wasn't suppose to be in.  We missed them when they left.  Grandma though is quite tricky and this past week we had a treasure hunt with clues she left for us.  Hannah ran around looking for the little squares of paper.  They finally found a bag full of popcorn, and treats, a book, and, Jonathan's favorite, pickled beets. 

We had a birthday party for Sarah, Grandpa, Margaret, Hannah, Jonathan and Charlotte.  We wished all those people could have been with us but at least their names were on our cake.

Thanks, Grandma, Rachel and Sarah.

Rachel is really good to entertain the kids.  They love her.

We took them to the Carnegie Science Center.  The kids love it and they wanted to show Grandma and the girls.  this is Charlotte and Spencer on a space work simulation station.  Charlotte just liked the roly chair.
