One Fun Weekend

Last weekend TJ's older brother Brad and younger sister Janelle and her hubby Kirk came into town to celebrate TJ's Grandmothers 80th birthday. TJ's family are rarely ever in the same state at the same time, so it was really fun to spend time with everybody. Brad and Janelle & Kirk came on Friday night. We had fun that night playing guitar hero- this came is SOO addicting! Thanks to Janelle and Kirk for bringing guitar hero down to was so much fun.

On Saturday TJ, Brad, Craig and Kirk all went golfing. TJ had never been before but after getting a "birdie" he declared golf his new hobby. Later, we all met at Karen's (TJ's mom) house for a open house for Grandma Miller. It was fun to see people I hadn't seen in a while, and some of TJ's cousins (most of whom he hasn't seen in at LEAST 10 years) came too.

After Grandma's open house, a bunch of us went outside and rode four wheelers around Karen and Craig's backyard. I had never ridden on one was pretty fun, I would definitely love to take one of those to Bear Lake and ride around on the beach! Drew LOVED riding on the four wheelers, although he hated going down the hills! He rode a couple of times with Kirk and then with TJ...this boy is ALL boy.

On Sunday, we all sang (by all I mean TJ's siblings and their spouses-and Craig and Karen) in Craig and Karen's ward. Karen is such an AMAZING musician!

She arranged "Reverently, Quietly" and it was so beautiful. I really enjoy singing with them. I'm not very good, but because they sound so incredible, I feel like I can blend in and I love just being in the experience. We spent the rest of Sunday making Chile Verde with TJ's fam (a Stevens family favorite!) and then it was time for the weekend to be over. It is always too short! It's always sad to see Brad and Janelle & Kirk leave...this family has so much fun together. I love you guys! Thanks for a fun weekend!!!

How fun Lindsay! I love when family comes to visit too! Guitar Hero will become an addiction soon, just wait. Sounds like you have a wonderful (2nd) family!

Lindsay - have I told you that you are the coolest?! Seriously. It was so much fun to hang out this last weekend - I just hope that we are able to do it more often. Loved all of the pictures :)

Ahh, long live Guitar Hero! It truly is the most addicting game there is, and I love that you're getting your kids in on the action so early!
