My boys were soooo excited because their Uncle T. and his girlfriend Laura were coming for a quick weekend with us on their way to her family's cabin. They drove here from Oklahoma and got in on Friday night.
The boys were anxiously awaiting their arrival. When they got here we had a yummy taco dinner and chatted and then the boys had a blast playing with them in their room before bed time. They sure are great playmates!
On Saturday, we headed over to Belleview Park for some fun.
We checked out the animals at the petting zoo.
Nolan was a drive by petter this day. He would give each animal a pat and then move on to the next.
These little baby ducks were my favorite!
Nolan really liked this pig!
Heath kept laughing and saying, "stinky pig, stinky pig"! Sometimes he thinks he is so funny! It's super cute!

A strange sight...some people REALLY love animals!
After the petting zoo, we took a ride on the train. I HEART this picture!
Nolan wanted to ride in the caboose. It was a fun little ride!
We spent a few minutes at the park before heading to drop the older boys off for naps at Oma's.
We had a fun filled afternoon planned at the Coors Brewery. Too bad when we got there, the wait to just get in was 2 hours! So we made other plans instead...
we went mini golfing! Tyler and I grew up mini golfing a lot. I hadn't gone in awhile so it was super fun!
We finished just before the rain started. So we picked up the boys and came home for a little Lego fun! They bought Nolan this Star Wars Lego set. Tyler built it and Nolan supervised. He has played with it non stop since and has even gotten pretty good at putting parts of it back together when it gets broken.
Showing off their masterpiece! C3PO and R2D2!
Tyler bought Heath some little Star Wars action figures that have also been all the rage around here!
Brooks got an OKC Thunder t-shirt and they all got this little soccer ball to share. It actually has similar colors to the Thunder. Brooks likes holding it, rolling with it, and slobbering on it!
When Tyler asked Nolan where he wanted to have dinner, he of course replied, "Pancake World!" But he had to make due with Pasquini's. We all had pizza except for Nolan. He had penne pasta. And he found the "Magic Noodle"(a piece of spaghetti mixed into his penne)! He thought it meant he was the winner at dinner!
And a visit from some very special people just wouldn't be complete if we didn't go to Fro Yo with them! We were stuffed after a delicious evening!
So we came home to lounge around and we actually watched some parts of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. The boys had never seen it before, but they LOVED it! They were glued to the T.V.
Sunday morning we woke up and I made pancakes for breakfast. We hung out for a bit but then it was time for Tyler and Laura to leave to drive to South Fork to be with her family at their cabin for the week.
I attempted to take some photos of the boys and Tyler sporting t-shirts with all the different Chicago teams on them. Well, it didn't go quite as planned...
Heath, as usual, was not cooperative! Ha! Laura said it was because he had the t-shirt representing the worst sport. I agree! A bribe of candy at 9 a.m. didn't even work!
So we'll settle with these cute pics! Cubs, Bulls, and Bears! Tyler and I will be Chicago fans for life, and so will my boys!
Thanks "T and Lawa" (as Heath calls them!) for taking the time to visit with us!! We had a great time and can't wait to see you at Christmas! LOVE YOU!
