We had so much fun and it went waaay too fast, but I am just overcome with gratefulness that they took the time to come all this way and see us in our new home!
When they showed up, we all matched! =)
Since Rebekah's birthday was only a few days before they came, we did a little birthday surprise for her =)
Mark playing with the Lego train with the kids
(we later found out that most of it had been destroyed by the kids... not cool when it had been assembled for the last 20 years or so...) =0/
Moriah recently learned how to make pinwheels, so she got to "teach" Auntie Bekah =)
Mark and I found lego building plans online and the reconstruction began...
The completed station!
Finished pinwheels =)
A friend had told me about a new park (one of the largest in Wichita) called OJ Watson park, so we checked it out on Monday:
We took a fun train ride around the whole park!
Cute couple behind me
...and the cute kids in front
Going through a covered bridge
The front of the train
They also had pony rides (this one looked happy to be free of his saddle!)
At one of the playgrounds...

That night we had dinner at Spangles...
Caleb and Uncle Mark
This was just supposed to be Mark and Rebekah...
...but everyone wanted in!
A story with Auntie Bekah (she gave him this book for Christmas and he LOVES it)
Moriah (who hadn't napped) was SO tired at bedtime
We took Mark and Rebekah for a short tour of the base on Tuesday morning and went to the fun base pool for a couple hours as well.
The kids ate lunch out on the patio yesterday and after Keenan came in, I looked out and didn't see the other two, so I went to the door and saw this:
Just kicking back in the sun =)
Playing a game on Uncle Mark's phone
Mark babysat during nap time yesterday while Rebekah and I did some fun shopping, thanks Mark!
Last night went to Botanica and I got to do an actual shoot of Mark and Rebekah, so fun!
They looked great and their colors went so well with the lush backdrops!
I Love this one
Mark pointed this guy out
We went to the butterfly house this time..
This was super cool! It's a temperature controlled case, full of chrysalis, just waiting to turn into beautiful butterflies!
Rebekah suggested they imitate this sculpture. I love it =)
This was her idea, too =)
... as was this =) (It's nice to have someone else take pictures for us!)
Cuties in the tree
I LOVE this one so much! They are both so handsome!
Me and my girl
With my love
Cute little stinker
They're too cute for me
Our girly girl =)
Our firstborn is growing up!
This grassy area was so awesome
I love this one of them!
Love this girl
...even when she tries to throw me in the fountain! =)
Mark and I matching
I love this one!
(Thanks Rebekah for these last two!)
After we finished at Botanica, we went to Braum's for ice cream and then to the Keeper of the Plains to see it lit up...
The fire through the grass on the river bank
We went to a bunch of places today (photo coverage by Rebekah), including the Donut Whole, the Nifty Nut House, downtown, and to see Philip at work.
The kids with their treats from Uncle Mark and Auntie Bekah from the candy store
She also got this for Philip and I - YUM!!!
They left this evening (after an AMAZING visit!) and I was So sad to see them go.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Mark and Rebekah for coming - we love you!!!
