We were so lucky this weekend to have Tim's sister Ann and her family come visit us in Phoenix! Tim had Friday night off, all day Saturday off and didn't have to go in until 6pm on Sunday so it was an ideal weekend for their visit. Kate was counting down the days for when Ellie would come and for at least 2 weeks leading up to their arrival Kate would ask me daily "if Ellie was coming today?" Ellie is only 5 months younger than Kate so they are good buddies.
We had such a great time showing them around a few of our favorite spots and soaking up the amazing 75 degree weather and sunshine! Friday night we headed over the Scottsdale Quarter, a fancy outdoor shopping area, where our favorite burger place, Zin Burger, is as well as the American Girl Doll Store. Kate really wanted to take Ellie there. We sat outside on the patio for dinner and enjoyed catching up. We enjoyed a Saturday visit to the zoo, Kate getting to have Ellie come to Primary with her, going to the Mesa Temple Visitor Center, having Tim's cousin Tisha (who also lives in Phoenix) and her family over for Sunday dinner and most of all just watching our girls play with their cousins. It was a quick weekend trip but we loved every minute of it. Thanks Ann and Adam for coming to visit!
It was so nice having family come to us!!! The one-on-one time is so fun and Kate loved having her cousins come and see her world! Not even thirty minutes after the Earls left on Monday morning she was asking when Ellie was coming back. When I told her I wasn't sure she asked when her other cousins were coming?! We love visitors! We'd love to have you! And as you can see from the pictures January is a fabulous time to escape the snow and cold!
|Friday night...this picture is blurry but I loved how excited the girls were to just be together. They were spinning in circles holding hands and laughing!|
