Family Visit

Sabrina's parents and older sister (and family) came to visit for a week. We had a great time, and the kids had a blast. They were here for Easter, and so we had a picnic in the park and even had an egg hunt and snowball fight. (stuffed snowballs) The boys played really well with their cousins, and Alemitu played really well with Aunt Tina. She talks nonstop about Aunt Tina now. She pretends to call her on the phone, asks me if we can go to her house, asks me if I am talking to her on the phone, asks if she is in the airplane in the sky, etc. Aunt Tina, Aunt Tina, Aunt Tina.

Here are some highlights from their visit:
We went to a spring training game, but it was really hot sitting in the stands. So Grandpa started a baseball game with the kids in the cool, grassy area.

Alemitu's first "big kid" ride.
She LOVED it!
Alemitu's second "big kid" ride. (She is sitting with Grandpa.)
She HATED IT! Look closely to see her crying into grandpa's chest. Unfortunately, this ride goes twice -- so she had to go again. After that, she was done with big kid rides. Done.

The boys LOVE going to Castle n Coasters with my dad. You can see why! I think he likes to take them just as much!

Everyone else was done riding roller coasters except for Wes. He told me he was brave enough to go by himself so I walked him up there and away he went. He was so proud of himself, and I was so proud of him.
Kissing cousins. They kiss and hug .. all of the time. Seriously. All. The. Time. (At least they aren't blood related???)

Alemitu is learning to give judgmental, questioning looks from her other cousin Chloe.

Fun in the Jeep with the hard top off.

Lots of playground time.
