Meagan's Visit!

Meagan came to meet Connor with her two girls. Wow, they have grown up so much! The cutest part about their trip (Besides the "Got Candy?" shirt montage below), was when they sang primary songs to Connor -- he lit up like a pumpkin! It was so cute, he was smiling and almost laughing while they were singing. So cute!!!

The first day we went to the park that is two blocks down from our house. It's a small park, but hey! it's new to them. :) And Connor just likes to go on walks.

Friday, we went to the zoo. It was kind of rainy, so I didn't take my camera with me. :( bummer. Maybe meagan can forward some pics from her iphone? :) (iphone's are cool. someday I'll join the technilogical revolution, too).

Saturday we went to the "special park". Ron and I call it that because it's so HUGE! anyone with kids can understand its allure. Anna and Miguel used to LOVE this park. It was always a motivator. :)

Abby and Avery loved it, too.

Out of ~20 pics of the swings, I got two that were in focus. (Even with a fast camera, it's hard to get those swings when the girls are swinging so fast!). Luckily, they were swinging in-sync. sweet! :)

This was Avery's first day down the pole by herself. She was so proud that she had to show me! multiple times... but I got some cute shots. of her and Abby, too!

This double-slide was dubbed "best friends' slide" by Abby for obvious reasons.

And, Connor just likes to be outside. So alert! (OK, yes, I had a cuter hat than that, but I forgot it at home... luckily I had this one in the diaper bag).

Sunday we watched Conference, and Wendel and Ashley came down to see Meag and the girls and brought some YUMMY bbq. We learned the distinction between bbq and grilling. apparently, it's a matter of time. (grilling = quick and easy, bbq = long and difficult).

Abby and Avery did surprisingly well for a 3 year old and 6 year old. by the fourth session, Avery zonked out on Meagan's lap (with a little help from the back-scratching).

Meagan had bought these cute "Got Candy?" shirts for the girls. We found a T-shirt for Connor and had to get pics of everyone. Avery was a bit tired, so she was only in the last few shots. She did smile for us, though! so cute!

Thanks, Meag for coming out!! It was really great to see you and the girls. (And thanks for keeping my kitchen clean, too! unecessary, but much appreciated! :)).
