|Grandpa and a lot of luggage.
So thankful the grandparents were willing to bring us so much stuff,
including salt that doesn't smell like nail polish remover.
After the worst set of travel delays ever, we were so happy they arrived safely.
|One of the many things Grandma Sharla helped out with while she was here was giving
all the boys haircuts.
Shirts Grandma Sharla made and thrift store finds from Aunt Kathy.
|Abigail especially loves all of the princess dresses
|Oh the things that happen while we have guests.
Here a watermelon literally just exploded all over the cabinet and floor.
We also had plumbing problems that are not worth picturing.
|All the playing
|Trying to pack a year's worth of playing into 15 days
|Reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
|We had a Chocolate Factory Party
|I made fudge mallow bars, like Charlie's winning chocolate bar in the book
|Invention room game,
where each kid had to figure out what to make with
marshmallows, toothpicks, and straws
|Golden ticket treasure hunt
|Grandma Sharla and the boys made a huge Chocolate Factory board game
that we all played.
After that we watched the classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Movie.
|So this was a cute thing the kids came up with all on their own.
This was the comity to cuteify the cuteification.
They were trying to convince the higher-ups to allow this action to pass.
There was high level corruption that had to be addressed and
under cover infiltration of important groups that had
to be accomplished before the motion passed.
Our kids are so funny.
|KFC and shopping fun
|There was more flags up this year for October 1st than we've ever seen before.
|Our Walmart is underground 1 level
|You can buy live crabs there
|And something we actually bought was red carrots
|Grandma and Grandpa played tons of games,
including Forbidden Jungle that Aaron and Andrew made all by themselves.
