It's been a week since Shawn's parents came to visit, but I'm finally getting around to posting pictures of their visit. They had a short visit this time because the weather was bad on Thursday when they were supposed to fly in. Who would have thought Kansas and Minnesota would be having snow in May?
We managed to squeeze quite a few activities into our Saturday schedule. Our first stop was the Home Depot Kids Project Day. They have free projects for kids every first Saturday of the month. It was fun to have one helper for each kid!
After Kaylee's dance show we went to the Green Wing Fair put on by the Fergus Falls Fish and Game Club. We had to pay for the kids to get in, but adults were free. They had it at the community arena and both ice rinks were full of fun activities for the kids to do.
mmm...hot dogs for lunch. I'm pretty sure the kids enjoyed them, the adults were hoping for something else. :)
Kassidy loved the blow-up obstacle course.
Karolyn hitting the hoops.
She was a dead eye at the rubber band guns.
Kassidy trying out the rubber band guns with daddy's help.
Kolsen shooting a cork gun.
Shawn helping Kolsen and Karolyn learn to use a bow and arrow. We may have to get some arrows for the bow that Nana Kristi got us this summer.
Papa, Shawn and Kolsen building a hen house. We've built quite a few of these and even put them out on wetlands.
Kassidy was worn out by all the fun.
On Sunday, after church we stuck around the house and had fun playing games and crafting.
Kolsen talked Papa and Shawn into playing Ticket to Ride.
Nana and Karolyn worked on cutting out some horses for a quilt Nana is making for her.
They also got our the ladder golf game. The weather was pretty cold and yucky the whole visit, but we managed to have tons of fun anyways.
Enjoying our first bonfire out back. I'm going to have to stock up on smores stuff.
We were sad when Nana and Papa had to leave to go back home on Monday. Working is overrated!
Karolyn, Kassidy and LT helped me drop Nana and Papa off at the airport. They had to climb in the plane and help push it out the hangar. Since we didn't have enough room in our van for everyone, Kolsen and Kaylee volunteered to stay home to get a head start on schoolwork
Kassidy and LT enjoyed riding in the plane while we pushed it out of the hangar.
That was a fast few days and we can't wait to see them again in July along with Eric's family.
