a long weekend

It seems like it was a whole week of a weekend around here... it's kind of nice to have a quiet, normal days this week. ;)

Last Thursday Amie and the kids came down for a quick visit and we had so much fun with them! We hadn't seen them all since February (?!) and that was way too long since we only live a couple of hours away. So, so great to see them, to have some kid play time, some girlie chat time (we missed you David!) and of course, the traditional kids on the stairs pictures!:

On Friday, the Robertsons stuck around to see the Laughlins who were coming down for the holiday weekend. We got a quick couple of shots of all the kids

whoops! only seven here...

ah, there's all of them...

before the Robertsons took off and we settled into a busy but relaxing long weekend with the Laughlins.
We took them to the zoo on Saturday, we spent a couple of afternoons at the pool, we grilled out a lot, we played a few dozen rounds of beer frisbee in the backyard, and spent an evening playing games with our neighbors who also had family in town.

Sawyer got Kasey hooked on Doodlejump. :)

We did a little mini-abbreviated 4th of July celebration on Sunday evening for the kids. Yes, these are boring pictures because we're lame and made them do sparklers in the daylight. Smoke balls and sparklers flame and smoke-lers were enough to satisfy them!

Thanks for spending time with us Friends!!
