A Visit with Auntie, Day 1

Erin is visiting us this weekend! She flew in Thursday night and we had a fun-filled day with her yesterday. She spent lots of time hanging out with the girls reading and doing puzzles and games.

Lila and I made a new recipe for Pink Lemonade Cookies which are good if you don't mind eating a scoop of powdered lemonade mix... Here's Lila sampling the dough.

While the girls were napping Chris, Ian and Erin went mini golfing. Here's Ian being Ian. He apparently lost very, very badly but had fun anyway.

Erin wanted to go to 2 Toots for dinner so after the girls' naps we headed to the train station so Erin could have the whole experience of riding the train to the train restaurant.

Cara's first train ride!

At the restaurant with the train in the background. Not sure why Ian looks so pained... After dinner we had about 45 minutes to kill before our train back home and I discovered a fantastic store across the street from the restaurant. I will definitely be making a trip back there!

I had taken the kids to the toy store yesterday to pick out one thing each and Lila opted for an umbrella instead of a toy. Luckily for her there was a thunderstorm warning yesterday so she got to bring her new umbrella along and we even had a few sprinkles while we were waiting for the train back home.
