Vicky's Visit

Ok I know I have been talking about July for forever now, but it was a super busy month, which I realize has just been my life now that there are more of us. But, I have finally made it and this is my final July post.

We were lucky enough to have Aaron's mom come and visit us for a few days. Ashton LOVES it when grandma comes to play. Grandma always comes bearing gifts and Ashton loved getting more cars. He got so many cars we had to go buy another car container and the hot wheels city to go along with them. Of course she brought presents for all of us, but watching Ashton open his things is the best part. We truly appreciate all the many wonderful things that mom brings/sends us.

Although her trip went by very fast, we were able to do lots of fun things. The first day we went down to Town Square. Ashton loves going there because there is an awesome park in the middle of all the shops. He and Vicky played, while I fed Kaylynn, and then we went shopping and bought some clothes for the kids. The next day we went up to the mountains to hike around. We packed a picnic lunch and had fun escaping the heat and spending time outside. The last day we went to church, then to lunch, and then to the airport.
It was a really fun weekend and I'm glad that she was able to come down and spend time with the kids. I know Ashton loved having someone to play with all the time and I enjoyed the help. We love her very much and was glad that she could make the long trip down to spend time with us.
