Our next visitors were Grandma Prather (Todd's mom) and Calvin (Our nephew). They made a quick trip to visit us and for Todd and Calvin to have some "man time." The boys went with Aaron (practically a member of our fam) to the Missouri High School Basketball Championship Games. The boys watched the games and had a good time. We also gained wisdom from Kathy (Todd's mom) on our landscaping plans - that you saw were recently finished! It was a fun short trip and great to see them both. Calvin is growing so fast and we can't wait to see him and the rest of the family soon when we celebrate Nanny's (Todd's grandma) 90th birthday!

Our last visitors of the last two weeks were my brother and sister (Alicia and Alex). They were on spring break and for some reason decided they would spend it with us! It was a lot of fun to have them here (it always is) and a great help. They played with their niece and nephew while I worked on spring cleaning projects (a blog-post to come about this soon). We also managed to fit in some fun why they were here - "Awesome Aaron" (as Alex calls him) spent some "man time" with Alex going out to eat, getting hair cuts, and most fun of all playing in the mud. One day the "man time" was suppose to be spent kicking soccer balls but turned into a mudfest (must see pictures below). After they returned I sent Alicia and Eliana to play in the mud but Eliana refused to get dirty! Instead she decided it would be more fun to clean Aaron's muddy car when they returned. She is totally my daughter - rather be cleaning than getting messy! We had good family time with them and they are such good kids. My mom (nanna) came this weekend to pick them up and of coarse we did some shopping and then had some movie and popcorn time. The kids were ready to go home and not have so many "daily chores" but overall we had a great visit!

We LOVE LOVE LOVE having family visit and can't wait to have more family time again soon!!!!!!
Love to all our family - thank you for supporting us and loving us!
