Since I wrote a blog about our fave girls I thought it is only fair to post a shout out to our fave boys. The Wolfgram boys; Parker, Hamilton, Tate, and Eli. These boys are great at doing "man things" with Brian. Trust me you don't want to know exactly what these "man things" are... They are sweet with Ellie and I am always impressed with how well they listen to their mom, she is good (I am always making mental notes on how my Aunt Linda parents). These boys helped us move into and clean our new house. They took a few breaks for Nerf arrow wars with Brian...By the way Brian just found his airsoft guns and is bringing them on our next visit to the Wolfgrams! So watch out! We love you guys!!!

Brian sister-in-law Shaunna (yes the very one that set us up... and made our happily ever after a reality) came to visit with her girls. Brian's brother Ben and his family live in Seattle but... sinceShaunna's family lives about 2 and a half hours away from us and the closest airport is in CHARLOTTE! This means any time they go to visit her family... which is kind of often (a girl has to see her family) we get to see them. Yet another reason why we love living here!
Anyway they were here for a few days this last week and we had a great time! Debbie and Dave came down, Glenn, Melanie, and Courtney also came over on Friday for dinner. It was so much fun to have everyone over. I love that we have enough space for so many visitors!

Addalyn and I making dinner! YUM!
We rode the train uptown. We went to the Discovery museum. We all LOVE LOVE LOVED the museum! I think Brian liked it more than the girls. he kept saying "come over here look at this!" We laied on a bed of nails... played with percussion... saw lost pirate treasure... created works of art... built towers... crushed a trash can... and so much more. We also had fun with infared (Okay Shaunna and I were the most intrigued by theinfared). We thought we were being sneaky as we tried to see the hottest parts on our bodies, you know, temperature wise...but mostly we were giggling like middle school kids.

He is going to be one HOT dad!

The girls fell in love with aunt Whitney's halfway unpacked closet.. it was Uncle Brian's idea! We played some serious dress up! Hey, in my day I was pretty much a dress-up queen! We made a huge mess... and did some serious accessorizing! Of course they are good at being fancy... HELLO... they were my flower girls! Next time they come it will be even more fun because the "dress up" selection will be organized!
