Cousin Visit

We had our Texas cousins (David and Jen family) visit the week of conference! We had so much fun with them while they were in Utah.

We got to meet out newest nephew Cameron who was born in December.

Between conference sessions on Saturday we all went to Lone Star Taqueria in Salt Lake. The kids all wanted to ride together in our car. Every time we went under an overpass the kids would all yell that we were going under a bridge. Robert said he didn't think he could handle having five kids. And I said..."huh, did you say something?" Mom's just learn to tune it out, especially in the car! Driving the kids around in the car is my most relaxing time of the day, they are all strapped in and can't get into any trouble.

Waiting for lunch to come out.

Yes, they were pretty crazy.

It was also Easter that weekend so we dyed eggs.

 Watching conference in the basement and eating snacks.

And celebrating Grandpa Wheat's birthday with ice cream sundaes.

Later that week we went to Hogle Zoo.

Micah was excited to ride the train at the zoo. Nate is sitting next to him, but he turned.

Wednesday we had a super rainy day so we went to Scheels and rode the Ferris Wheel. Micah and Nate were just barely tall enough to ride, poor short Wheat boys.

Then that night Robert got tickets to a Jazz game for six people from work, so we took the oldest two cousins and sent the younger kids to their respective grandparent's homes for babysitting. We rode the Trax since it passes right by our house and goes directly to the basketball arena. The kids were super excited for that.

Julia proved to be a great cheerleader. Everyone around us turned and looked at her at the beginning of the game because she was so vocal with her cheers. Hopefully it added to their experience and wasn't annoying.

We all got Jazz blankets which came in handy while waiting for the Trax.

 The kids pretended to sleep on the train on the way home.

 The cousins going crazy with playdough.

Keeping busy in our backyard on their last day here.
