grandma palmer came out last wednesday to help us for a few days. it was so nice to have her around!
bryan, annie, julia and audrey even made it up to meet their new cousin. the hotel they were staying in had an indoor pool that was as warm as a bathtub (or so i was told...) so we all headed over there and had a pool party.
since almost all of us have a birthday sometime in the next month or two we had a joint birthday party. james and i have been looking for an excuse to purchase this gigantic chocolate cake from costco and this was the perfect event! (for whatever reason the cake looks really tiny in this picture... trust me, it is AnYtHiNg but tiny.)
fun family in town, pool party, birthday cake... what more could a kid ask for?
the next day we all went to the movie theater to see Gnomeo and Juliet. Unfortunately it was sold out so we went to Rango instead. It was kind of a weird show but the kids seemed to enjoy it... and so far scott hasn't seemed to have any of the nightmares that i was concerned he would have (or that i would have) from the movie, so thats good.
before taking grandma palmer to the airport we stopped in at Five Guys Burger and Fries since she had never been there before. it was truly a delicious experience.
and naturally i had to get another shot of brother and sister together.
scott's expression pretty much says it all.
