Catching Up

We've had a fun week! Ali and David are visiting and we've been out and about, and have done a large amount of eating and hanging around. Here are the highlights...

Science Museum!!

This place is a lot of fun. We found a fish tank for Fiona to be excited about...


We checked out the human body section, where we discovered that Ali does have a heart, and she used her doctor knowledge to try to outsmart the 'diagnose the disease' game.

After a brief ice cream break we visited the dinosaurs, but mostly Fiona wanted to crawl inside a large tube which represented the stomach of a brontosaurus.


Then we made some tornadoes, and looked at some lights. After all that excitement it was time to be going home.

That evening we had thai food for dinner. It was very delicious, and David introduced a new game involving fortune cookies. When you read your fortune, you add 'in bed' to the end of your fortune to get an even more accurate representation of your personality. Here's what we had...


We had a fun game night with Cathy, Erik and Carol. We played guesstures... you have to act out words while your team guesses. Can you tell what Ben's doing?


Another day we had some fun hiding in baskets...



On Friday we went to a birthday party for Andrew and Leo, and then on Saturday we had dinner with Tanya and Boyd, and then went downtown to watch the fireworks and celebrate 4th of July.

Fiona mostly just wanted to climb on her stroller...


But she did enjoy the fireworks too after she got over the surprise.


And despite not going to bed until midnight, she still woke up at 6.10 this morning. Awesome.

Today the weather is beautiful, and after we doused ourselves in sunblock, we went for a walk around lake Calhoun. Very serious business.


And now we're just waiting for Fiona to wake up from her nap so we can take Ali and David to Outback (where we take all our visitors).

So it's been a very fun week so far! They'll be here until Thursday, so there will be more adventures to come...

What is Ben trying to act out? I thought it might be poison oak, or maybe starting a lawn mower?? :)
