Our Special Labor Day Weekend Visitors!

We were sooo excited when my sister, Julie, called to tell us that her and Keith and the kids were coming to OH (about an 8 hour drive) over Labor Day weekend and that they would stop in Ashland and spend all day Monday with us.!!! We had so much fun with them...We all went downtown for the Labor Day parade, & Uncle Mike's magic show intro...We had a picnic with super duper sundaes for dessert...and lots of fun moments intermingled throughout the day in our apartment, around campus and on the playground...
  • Josiah really liked the super duper sundaes (Julie, I see why you wanted small bowls for the kids...I see what a little sugar can do!). Josiah also enjoyed playing along in the grown up games but he is still full of lots of energy and so much fun...
  • Katelyn was so excited because our playground "has threeee sliiides!" and it was entertaining to watch her chase after Josiah and Uncle Mike on the playground saying, as fast as the words would come out, "Unckle Ike, Unckle Ike, Unckle Ike, Unckle Ike, Unckle Ike..."
  • Caleb is such a cutey and he hardly cried after he got over the initial intimidation of being in a strange place. We have some really cute clips of him on the video, including him showing us "strong" and "cheeeese" (standing on the picnic table bench), imitating Uncle Mike doing the floating dollar bill trick and breaking into dance moves at the sound of music...
My very first amateur video captures our day...
(We have more video of Caleb than the others because he got all the attention while Josiah and Katelyn were down for naps. Also, can you guess you was taking the pictures since I'm hardly in any?)

Can you believe that we did all that in one day?!? Each of you are so precious to us and we are so glad that you spent the day with us! Come back and visit us anytime!!!! We love you!!!

That was cute! Caleb is such a ham! Josiah was pretty good at that game...throwing the frisbee....I don't think I could throw one like that at 5!! Katelyn's adorable as ever!

That slide looked alittle rough though for an adult...looked like it'd hurt the hips! OUCH! :)

Glad you could fit so much into one day and enjoyed the time!!

The video was so cool Jen! Thanks for putting it together! I never knew Mike had "teaching time" with Caleb & the hand clapping thing. That was neat to see. And I'm glad you didn't have the audio on me going down the slide ;) I loved how he enjoyed Mike so much... he was his buddy wasn't he! Thanks again for hosting us! It was great!
