Family time...

The crazy whirlwind began Friday evening... the first carload with Brian and Laura and Jack arrived.  Mysteriously only leaving about 15 min. ahead of their parents snuck in more than 30 min. ahead of them (I won't say how much more).
It was the first time we have seen Jack Garrett since he returned from his mission in Brazil.  It was really really good to see him in person.  He was so sick, we prayed sooo much for his safe return and recovery.  A very sweet moment!

It was also the first time we have seen Laura and Brian since their wedding.  They are adorable and we are so excited to watch their little family grow.

Lucille, Tom, Wayne and Fred came to visit... I get so upset to think we only see them when someone comes from far away.
Life just keeps getting in the way, but we will keep trying to make that different, life is also very short and we have to make the most of every moment.

We were stuffed into our little house and instead of providing a cool oasis for their first stop, we faught to try and keep the heat at bay.  It was a hot day and not cooling down fast enough for me.
Could Chloe get any more beautiful??

Yay!  Hailey played for us... I LOVE hearing her play.
It wasn't enough for me... I need a CD!!!!
Or just some alone time with Hailey!!!
I might have to go kidnap her (shhhh).

Of course "Uncle Jim" wanted to show his new tv and we watched Megamind in 3D.  Not as fun with only two glasses, we will have to work on that so we can have a real movie night and invite friends.

This morning we got up early and Jim fixed his famous mountain man breakfast for them so they could get on the road early.
Trent didn't want to leave (a BIG tug at my heartstrings) he and Taylor made close friends quickly.  But I know as soon as he re-focuses on the final destination on the Oregon Coast we will be in his dust!  

It was a whirlwind, but soooo wonderful to see all of them.  I have a special place in my heart for this family and we love them to pieces.
Seaside or Bust!!
