We were thrilled when Steve and Micah said that their family was going to come visit us this summer! They have been living in the Philippines, so obviously, we haven't seen too much of them. There were many days of laughing, playing games, Foosball tournaments galore and sight seeing. The nights were super fun for the kids and a little bit grating on the parents. There was a lot, and I mean a lot of giggling late into the night in Lily's room packed with girl cousins. The boys didn't so much giggle, as much as talk and talk and fight, and talk until they couldn't keep their eyes open anymore. It was totally worth it though!

Roasting marshmallows and chatting about this and that on a Sunday evening.
We met Kristi's family and took a special trip into Salt lake and toured the conference center, then we walked around temple square for a while. I realized I hadn't been taking many pictures of their visit, so I tried to catch some that day.
It was hard to get everyone's attention at the reflection pond. There was a lot of talking going on.
These girls are two peas in a pod. Both adorable and irresistible. Eliza was hot and tired and she kept asking me to hold her. How could I turn that down? I could hold her forever. She is a super cuddly little girl....unlike mine.
We also visited the Church history museum where the kids had so much fun.
Cute girly girls

We enjoyed lunch together and basically just had a great time enjoying each others company. Please please please come and visit us again soon!
