4th of July Visitors

We were pleased to have some visitors this week! My brother and his family came out to DC for the week of the 4th of July. What a great way to celebrate my birthday! Again! (They also visited us in Ohio over my birthday). We had so much fun seeing the sights and having late night conversations.

The kids got along great! I seriously think our house was calmer with them here since their girls helped mellow out our boys. There weren't nearly as many kung fu fights as normal. Thanks Sarah and Whitney!

We enjoyed the temple grounds.... caught in a storm...
...and, of course, ate yummy cake courtesy of Paul, Tim, Liz, and the kids.
Thanks for coming guys. We had so much fun with you! Thank you for making my birthday special. We love you!

Brothers are Great

I recently spent some time in the boy's bedroom cleaning and sorting and such. I put Isaac on the bed just like in the picture below...

When I looked over to check on him, this is what I found...

Aaron had "tucked Isaac in." He even shared his own blankie and his favorite stuffed lion. I thought that was just the sweetest thing, so I caught in on camera.

This is our "tummy time" spot. Under our coffee table. It keeps him from getting stepped on by his big brothers.

Big brothers are the best!
