Fun Day with S. and A.!

A. and Paula "Happy to Be Together Again"
A little over a week ago S. and A. came to our house to visit for the first time! We had such a great time with them. It was actually at the end of a long holiday weekend, so Tia and Javier came over and  we made lunch together. We fed S. and A. earlier than the rest of us, so that they could take a nap!

First we gave them a bath and then took lots of pictures of them on Rudi's and my bed. Unfortunately we couldn't get them to sit very still! They actually both slept on our bed for their nap. They settled down really well and I had to wake up S. about three hours later, so that he would sleep that night!
A. and S. all clean and ready for naps!
While the little ones slept Emily and Tia finished up lunch preparations! Check out Paula getting something out of the cupboard in the picture below.  She loves to help herself to nuts in that cupboard and climbs up all by herself!

Javier did an awesome job of barbecuing the chicken and sausages. It was SUPER yummy food!

We all served up outside by the barbecue. Salad from Tia's garden, mashed potatoes, watermelon, and
B.B.Q. Chicken and sausages!
We then ate on the wood deck out behind the house. The house comes with chairs, tables, and umbrellas for the outside. It was a beautiful day to have lunch outside.
 After lunch we had fun playing "Settlers of Catan" with Tia and Javier just like old times. After S. and A. got up from naps the kids had fun playing with them until we took them home around 7:30 in the evening. It had been a great day!!

  1. I am so thankful you can have S. and A. visit you! Your place looks absolutely beautiful, inside and out! The kitchen is so light. :)

    Those greens look so fresh!

    What a nice BBQ--and with a sink nearby. :)

    I wish you many more happy days on the patio!

    Love to each of you!
