Eva started the whole marathon two Thursdays ago. She came to Snyder a couple of days early to help with the birthday party and she stayed until Monday morning. Of course we had lots of friends and family here for the party and then Sunday afternoon, Elizabeth flew in from North Carolina! She came in October last year right after Eli and Landon were born, so this was her 2nd Annual Texas Trip (it's going to be a tradition from now on). We LOVED having her here. Here are a few pictures from her stay:
We went to the zoo on Wednesday with the Boyd gang and had a lot of fun even though it was almost 100 degrees.
Elizabeth was quite impressed with this "Texan" at the zoo, so we took a picture of him. (I apologize if this is you or someone you know)
She went to Eli and Landon's doctor appointment with us on Thursday before we had to take her to the airport. (I promise I dress my children when we go in public - we have to take their clothes off to be weighed)
Thank you so much for coming to see us. We loved having you here! And a happy late birthday to Elizabeth! Remember this last year? It's not quite as easy anymore to have them hold a sign.
Saturday morning my dad and Andrew got up at 5:00 to drive to Snyder and spend a couple of days with us. We had a great time. We ate lots of good food, watched a lot of football, played with Eli and Landon, and had several rousing games of 42 (Dustin and I won by the way).
For reasons unknown to me...Grandpa decided that Eli and Landon needed a new TV, so this was "their" birthday present from him.Talk about a gift that keeps on giving. I'm sure Eli and Landon will watch their share of Pixar movies in years to come, but for the moment, I'm pretty sure mom and dad will get the most enjoyment out of this one. Thanks Dad for this outrageous gift. You really, really shouldn't have :)
They did, however, enjoy eating the box.
It was a short visit, but we packed a lot of fun into it.
Thank you for coming all the way out here to see us. We loved it!
