Back in the beginning of May we had a visit from my brother and his family. How I love those guys. We, sadly, didn't get to spend much time with my sister-in-law Jennifer (they were here so she could attend a professional conference held at the Provo Marriott), but we got to soak up a lot of quality kid time. Isaac adored having Beck, Ainsley, Eli, and Brynn come over every day to play. These kids are some of the funniest people ever, and so sweet to each other and to my two kids.

They all really enjoyed taking turns holding Violet.

Isaac and Eli are finally at an age where they can play together and enjoy it (they have a bit of a rocky past).

Beck is an awesome big brother, and takes care of everyone and made sure everyone was having a good time.

He loved Violet.

And Violet loved him back.


In fact she loved all her cousins.

And she got some love from Brother as well.

Those little red spots around his mouth? Leftovers from our experience with hand-foot-and-mouth the week before. That was fun.

While the kids were here, we mostly played around the house and in the backyard, but we also made a trip to the park (which ended almost as soon as it started when there was an unexpected potty accident), and a trip up to temple square in Salt Lake. We didn't get many pictures of the square or the exhibits. But here are some of the kids goofing off.

The last night they were here, we all went to one of our favorite restaurants in Provo - Terra Mia. Seriously, if you love Italian pizza, you have to try it. It was great fun and delicious, and it really made me with my brother and his family lived closer.

Thanks for visiting us, you guys! We sure love you!
