Weekend of Fun

 The long anticipated visit from Sora's grandma and papa Barney and cousin Dylan is now, sadly, over. We all had a great time while they were here. Sora and Dylan got along well and there was relatively little fighting for two 3 year olds spending 3.5 days together. Here are a few highlights of the trip:

The girls went sledding and exploring in the snow (as seen in the last post). Dylan also went ice skating for the first time! Sora chose to watch - I think she's a little skated out. My hopes of turning her into an Olympic skater will have to wait until next winter since this was really the last weekend to skate outside.

The girls played at home a lot. Sora has a ridiculous amount of toys for an only child, and Dylan was excited to explore them all. Here they are making up rules to a game. Apparently one rule is that you must only wear panties and one sock.
 The girls had a tea party, complete with fancy cucumber sandwiches, cream puffs, and of course real tea, sugar and cream! This was adorable and the girls loved playing with the playdough cupcakes and blowing out their birthday candles at the end of the party. In true opposite cousin style, Sora chose to "dress up" by wearing pajamas (rather than just panties as most of her around-the-house time is spent) and Dylan chose to wear a fancy dress.

 Of course, both girls loved playing with Kyle. Here is is giving them both a helicopter ride.

 All this playing wore them both out! Sora even napped 2 of the days they were here!

There were other adventures as well: restaurants for Friday Fish Fry, breakfast, lunch, and coffee - all the major eating times of the day. The girls each got to pick out a toy at the toy store courtesy of great grandma (Dylan chose a pink doll and Sora chose a kick ball). There was a visit to the candy store (where both girls were extremely well behaved) as well as a playground.

Overall, it was a great visit - Sora had a hard time last night knowing everyone was leaving today. Dylan was a lot of fun and her and Sora wore all of us adults out with all of their running and screaming!
