Even though Mom's flight got in at 10 pm, I let the kids decorate a sign and stay up and come to the airport... they were SO excited!!!
Impatiently waiting for her to arrive!
The next morning they got some presents!
Awesome books from Aunt Heather!
A cool book and some fun bins from Grandma
Playing cars on Friday =)
This was only the beginning of books that Grandma would read to them!!!
After they dropped us at the airport on Saturday morning, they headed to the zoo for a few hours with a picnic lunch!
In the Tropical Rainforest
Just the girls
Thanks for taking these, Keenan! So glad to have her in some!
The kids peeking from behind the waterfall
Keenan and Moriah in front of the leopard enclosure
At the park
The lions were quite active (and not just sleeping like usual)
Proud male, looking very handsome
Moriah bought this pretty parasoul in the zoo giftshop
The rest of these are after we got back...
Mom and the kids met us at the airport on Thursday afternoon (after a busy day of CC for all of them!) We were SO glad to see them all! They had lots to tell us about their week together (they had so much fun and my mom did such a wonderful job juggling our crazy schedule!) We showed them all our trip pictures on the big screen downstairs before bed..
Friday morning we all went out for breakfast at Jimmy's Egg! So fun!
From there, Philip went to work and the rest of us drove to Cox Farm pumpkin patch and met up with a bunch of friends from CC!
The kids loved playing on these bales (Keenan ended up covered in scratches but said it was worth it!)
Heading into the corn maze. Our group got horribly lost...
...and we ended up taking a "shortcut" out (Mom was a great sport!)
Caleb on the "cow train"
Moriah and some friends
Keenan milking the cow =)
Caleb loved feeding the goats

I love this picture of all of us!
My three punkin's
Moriah's last picture before losing another bottom tooth!
Mom bought Mexican Train for the kids and taught them how to play - they are addicted and we played 15 games of it before she left! =)
To me, her visit seemed short because I really only got 2.5 days with her, but she was here for 8.5 days and I know my dad missed her.... Still, it was soo hard to say goodbye today (Sat). Mom, we LOVED having you here, what a blessing your visit was to all of us! We love you!
