More friends from Kansas City came to visit us this past weekend. The Austins - Brian, Courtney, Emma (turning 3 this week) and Annabel (9 months) - were our neighbors in Prairie Village and we miss them dearly. This is their second trip to see us and we are so glad they came! What a busy weekend we planned, too. Good thing the kids were excited to go to bed Friday night because we had a busy Saturday!
Here they are all nestled into the bunk beds!
Saturday the airport had their Hays Regional Fly-In. There were all sorts of planes on display, helicopters, and even a C-130. Isaac also loved the firetrucks.
Below is Isaac on the Eagle Med helicopter. Chloe joins him in the third picture.
This was probably Isaac's favorite--the airport firetruck.
He knew exactly what it was as soon as we saw it and I'm glad he got to go inside.
Emma was a little intimidated but she did get inside for a picture!
My All-American boy. Love him.
And of course, we ran into the Hughes family while we were there! It's fun that our families do the same activities so we can see each other at the events. This is the kids on the C-130.
Funny faces all around!
This shows Chloe & Isaac in charge of the K-State plane.
There were even games for the kids to play and get prizes.
We also went to Pottery Works on Saturday. With Emma's birthday being this week I thought it would be a fun present for her to paint some pottery, knowing all the kids would have a great time. I think all the parents were impressed with everything also and were glad the kids had fun INSIDE. Whew, it was a hot weekend!
Here is Isaac painting his helicopter.
Chloe painting her dog.
Even Annabel got in on the action doing a lovely finger-painting background before she and Emma put their hand-prints on the tile.
I'll try to post pictures of the finished masterpieces when I pick them up after they are fired in the kiln. This was a great activity for everyone.
