We were sad to say goodbye to the Showalters this morning. They arrived last Wednesday which was also Tyler's last day of school.
Thursday while I was at work, I got this picture of them playing at the park. It made me happy. :)
Friday was my last day of work. Meanwhile, the rest of the crew went to Tanganika. Looks like they had a good time!
Feeding to lorikeets.
And a giraffe.
Sweet Reid kisses.
Evenings, Ted and Sue joined us for dinner. Friday was our traditional trip to Red Lobster. Luckily, we were all healthy this year so we could all enjoy it. And the kids are all getting old enough to mostly stay seated during our meal. We're growing up! :)
Saturday, I got to join them for a trip to Exploration Place, lunch at Old Chicago and a walk by the Keeper of the Plains.
Wright Brothers flight simulator. A.k.a. let's crash and laugh.
Erosion display. Whatever, it's a sand and water table. :)
Tornado simulator = fun!
Our renaissance princesses riding their noble steed. Likely Elsa and Anna on their way to the coronation ball.
Yes, riding horses is painful, Hollins. ;)
Our little jester.
Sunday was spent in Hesston.
Lunch at Pizza Hut.
Enjoying the cool water at the Arboretum.
Then Hollins and I were off to the splash pad and playground with the kids while Ted, Sue, Wayne and Rachel went to watch the Cotton Patch Gospel one-man show.
Tyler talking Reid into trying out the water.
Aaaannnnddd, they were worn out. After dinner, Reid and Aubrey fell asleep watching Frozen on Grandma's bed.
Memorial Day was laid back.
Ahhhhh, a happy start to Summer!
