Last Tuesday, after Steve got home from work, we headed out to Indiana to see Steve’s brother and his family. We drove halfway on Tuesday night, and halfway on Wednesday, which was the perfect solution for the craziness of driving with two little guys. Nolan was so excited to spend a few days with his girl cousins!
Our days were full with visiting the library, trekking around the zoo, singing karaoke, playing with Play-Doh, and eating Swedish Fish. One of our nieces danced around in her bright green Tinkerbell dress every day. The other loved to sing us endless songs that I can’t believe a two-year-old has the memory for!
My sister-in-law, Dana is expecting a new baby in two weeks—so it was wonderful to spend some time with them while they’re still a family of four. (Though I wish the timing had worked out with fall break so that we could meet the baby!)
This craft was so fun! Dana mixed food coloring with vinegar in little bowls. Then she poured baking soda all over a tray. She gave the kids little medicine squirters to shoot vinegar onto the baking soda, and make colored fizz! They loved it!
At one point, Ephraim walked across the living room floor pushing this table!
Meanwhile, the guys went for runs and worked on projects around the house.
Checking out the little lady bug she caught outside.
I have more photos (mostly of the zoo) from my other camera to follow tomorrow!
