An Unexpected FUN Weekend

I got a call from Joe's sister, Esther, on Wednesday letting me know that they were going to be in town over the weekend for a reunion for her husband's family. Apparently, Joe already knew about this and failed to mention it. But who cares?! I was so EXCITED!!!! We always have so much fun when Esther comes to town. And this weekend was no exception. =) They came late Saturday evening to stay with us thru Tuesday. Sunday after Church we took the boys to Silver Lake up Big Cottonwood

Canyon. There is a boardwalk around this marshy lake. We put Zachary
and Peter in the wagon and Ben was happy to run around. We actually
saw a moose! Joe and I go up there quite often and we have never seen

a moose. They are the oddest looking creatures. But the best part was when Ben wanted so badly to touch the water. Esther hung him upside down by his feet. I thought for sure she was going to drop him. The little boys thought it was so funny.
I'm so GLAD that they came to stay with us for a few days. Zachary and Peter continue to share everything...food, cups, and toys. And Ben is full of whys...why this and why that. He never seemed satisfied with an answer he just always responded with another why. He was alot of fun. Here is a little conversation we had:

Me: Ben, I'm going to miss you when you are gone.
Ben: Why?
Me: Because you are so much fun and I love you.
Ben: Why?
Me: Ummmm...just because.
Ben: Ok, I'm gonna miss you when you're gone too.
Thanks for playing with us guys! We love and miss you already!
