Last weekend B's sister and her husband and children came to visit from Oregon. We had SO much fun! Here are some (a LOT) of pics.
My sweet niece Isla (who just turned 2) at our neighborhood splashpad:
My sweet nephew Oscar (almost 4) enjoying N's watering can:
Uncle Chris spraying N (sorry this one is blurry as Chris's expression is priceless):
My swimmer, J:
Isla LOVED the splashpad:
On Friday, we went to the Dallas Zoo.
N checking out the Galapagos tortoises and a squirrel:
N picked out his own outfit today. He said he wanted to be a rainbow. :)
We checked out SOAR, the new bird show at the zoo. It was really fun.
Chris, Isla and N watching the penguins:
A hawk! One of the many birds who soared right over our heads:
Chris and Isla watching the children's favorite bird--the parrot who sang Old MacDonald:
We actually got a decent photo of all four children!:

N checking out a lion outside of the Serengeti Grill:
Isla and the lions:

On Friday night, we went to Randy White's Barbecue (actually really good and very family friendly) and DQ for ice cream.
N and J:
Can you tell that I am a little smitten with Isla? She was just so photogenic this weekend.
We are so thankful that our family ventured all this way just to spend a long weekend with us. SO MUCH FUN!
