We had taken the boys to the Science Museum on Monday morning and then my mom cooked supper for us that night. My Aunt Nita joined us. We had a fun time eating and visiting.

They also got some more Pop-Its which they love.
On Tuesday we had a mother/ daughter shopping day. We spent all day together shopping, eating, laughing, and having the best time. I miss these days when we are gone.

On Wednesday morning we made a visit to the local library. It was the boys first trip there. We spent about two hours there reading books and looking around. My boys are very active but they will sit still and read books any time.

Afterwards we picked up some McDonald's for lunch and headed to Lake Hazle for a picnic and to feed the ducks. It was a beautiful day to be outside enjoying the fresh air and sunshine.

My mom had us over for supper again on Thursday night. We had pizza delivered and I baked one of our favorite desserts Cherry Cheese Coffee Cake to go with it. It is so delicious! The recipe uses crescent rolls which we cannot get in Guatemala so I don't get to bake it unless we are home.
Ben took this photo of us eating supper at Mimi's on Thursday night
She planned us a Welcome Home party with family on Saturday night. That was a lot of fun and I'll share photos from that in another post. I am so glad for all the time we have had to spend together so far. It's been fun!
