We watched Andrew and Mallory this week while Malachi and Layne went up to Canada for a vacation. They were here Sunday evening, through until late Wednesday.
We had a lot of fun doing all kinds of activities and getting to spend time together.
The big thing they wanted to do was go fishing. So one morning before Andrew's baseball camp we went fishing. It started out really neat when the kids found a big turtle up on the shore trying to get some sun.
We fished at Bradley Lake Park out on the dock. At first Mallory said she wasn't touching any squirmy worms, but before we were done she did stick one on a hook.
We didn't catch any fish but we saw some in the water and they got some nibbles. However the sun was out and the weather was sunny and the lake was gorgeous. It was a great start to the morning.
They did want to play some games on the computer while they were here.
But not too much.
Can't forget to mention Bruce. He was here too.
One day Doranda came up with her children so they could play with their cousins.
We went to the park by the library.
Leon and Penelope doing gymnastics on the grassy fields.
Scarlett and Penelope.
Then later in the week James and Ashton flew into town and we had some overlap where we had all four.
Of course Caleb had a lot of fun playing with the children.
Ashton made us a dinner one night. He took cooking lessons and made an Italian meal with Alfredo noodles and buttery bread rolls. It was delicious.
Mallory was the first to want to shoot arrows. She learned quick.
Andrew had no trouble at all and took it right up. He's very athletic.
James got a dead center bullseye on one shot.
Then later in the week Tianna came up also. Ashton made us cinnamon rolls.
