A Visit with the Grandparents
This photo depicts my children and some of their cousins on their dad's side of the family. Grandma Margaret and Grandpa Bill recently finished their second mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and are here visiting. While they were staying with Michael's brother, they made a treasure hunt game with my niece, Nina. Sunday, after church, the whole family came here for dinner and mayhem. The kids all did the treasure hunt and found 2 chests full of trinkets like candy and head wear--princess hats for the girls and feather headbands for the boys. All of the kids proudly put on their hats and we herded them together as best we could for the photo opp.
This morning, I took my little girls (all three of them with Selena) and my mother-in-law and her husband to Brighton Dam. We missed the time when the Azalea Garden was in full bloom, but still had a nice time. Some of the azaleas were still blooming and the weather today is too gorgeous for any outdoor activity to be a total bust.
The girls loved the different colored blossoms (who knew that there are azaleas that have a light-colored center, but are dark purple on the outside?) and looking into the water to see the little fish. They also loved the little gazebo right by the entrance to the garden.
There was a lone goose there--eating fallen flowers and
who knows what else. Mackenna kept trying to call the goose over to her,"Gooskey! Gooskey! Come here, Gooskey Gooskey!" It was really cute. It's definitely somewhere I need to revisit earlier in the spring next year.
