weekend and family...

Joy and the kids were down from Vancouver for the weekend. It was SO NICE to see them and spend time with them. On Friday all of us(Denise, Ed, Landon, Joy, Austin, Mel, Brady, Luke and I) went to the Tom Pierce Riffle Park, where they have a nice, mile long nature trail. The idea was to hike it as a family and enjoy the outdoors since it was a nice day. LOL little did we know...the trail was mostly flooding, it was like hiking through a swamp! Landon and Ed turned back pretty quickly, and after i twisted my ankle on a wet rock i soon followed. While the rest of the family finished their swamp treck the 3 of us enjoyed the river, and Ed taught Landon about bee's and pollen. (It was cute to watch him explaining it all to Landon) After everyone was back at the cars we had a little picnic in the grass and the kids played frisbee. That night we all had dinner at Denise and Ed's, and after we watched the kids all play on the wii.
Saturday was Rebecca's shower. It was out in the country a lil ways at Sheril's house. The house and property is beautiful, i understand why they love it! The shower itself was beautiful. Sheril made some amazing food and had a white chocolate fountain, which the kids all loved. Rebecca was so happy to see everyone, and she made sure we all felt welcome. She got alot of wonderful gifts as well. I know some of the famiyl worried about drama, seeing as how half our family hates the other half, but everyone was well behaved and no drama occurred.
After the shower we spent the day at Denise and Ed's, letting 'double trouble" (landon and brady) get a chance to play as much as possible. Denise, joy and i spent the afternoon on the deck soaking up the sun and just talking. At one point double trouble came out, both upset. Brady told joy Landon wasn't his cousin anymore, and Landon told me Brady didn't want to be his cousin anymore. Landon had upset Brady so Brady disowned him(LOL) After a minute we got them to make up. Landon apologized for making Brady mad and Brady apologized for saying Landon wasn't his cousin anymore, and they hugged, made up, and the whole thing was forgiven and forgotten in minutes. i think, especially in our family, that we could learn a lesson from those 2!!!! If only the adults in our family could be as forgiving and loving...All in all we had a wonderful visit, and i got some great pictures, which will be on facebook as soon as i can get my computer to let me load them.

Now, im going to go outside with Landon and blow bubbles and enjoy the beautiful spring weather...the nice spring breeze blowing through my house is beckoning me!
