My step sister and her husband came into town a week or so ago and we got to spend some time with them but not nearly enough.

We went to my mom and step dads house last Sunday and we spent the day with family.  We played Frisbee Golf and had a nice Chinese Dinner.  It was our first time ( Chad and Me ) playing frisbee golf and Chad did great and I sucked but still had a good time.

We decided that Sunday wasn't enough time with them so we went back to my parents house on Tuesday to hang out and have dinner.

I am so glad we decided to go back and spend more time with them.  Alex has so much fun with all her Aunts and Uncles and she doesn't get to see Lauren and Joey nearly enough as they live in California.  

They played and played and played with Alex. 

Joey was such a great sport playing cars, ball and just interacting with her.  She loved it and she loved Joeys hat he is wearing in these pictures.  Because we told Alex they had to get on a plane a few days ago she said, "mom when I go on a plane I am going to ask Joey where he got his hat!", I thought that was so cute.  

Lauren got to spend some good time with Avin, holding her and talking/playing with her.  

We also got to see this crazy storm go through.  In Cali they don't see storms like these so they where super excited.  We sat outside and talked while we watched the storm go through.  

We got a little wet but we enjoyed watching the storm. 

We had a ton of fun and Alex even got to spend the night at Grandma and Grandpas house and say goodbye to Lauren and Joey before they headed back home.

Thanks for spending that extra time with our family Lauren and Joey, it really meant a lot to us and to Alex!  We can not wait for Christmas and we can not wait to hopefully come out to Cali and spend some more time with you guys.

PS. Don't forget about the giveaways I have going on right now!!

Glod you got to see your step-sister! Looks like you had a lot of fun. :) That looked like a good storm!

I wish I could see my step brothers more. One is busy being 21 and the other lives in DC

Have a great rest of the weekend!
