This past weekend we were blessed to have family come to visit. Matt's mom, Nan and cousin Amber drove down Wednesday afternoon to visit for a few days. Amber was on her Spring Break, and the kids LOVED that she was there. I don't think there was a moment that they didn't want her to play with them. I really thought that Amber would be ready to leave the next day. But she was a real trooper and had a blast with them. She has been prayed for ever since (by name, not just included in the "family"). We played outside as much as we could. We blew bubbles, rode bikes and played basketball. We also went to the Rain Forest Cafe. Everyone loved it exept Riley. When the lightening storm came and the gorillas went bonkers she freaked. She was not to sure about the Hippo out front when it grunted, but was ok with the moving, non-noise making butterflies. :) What a difference a year makes. She loved it at 6 months- oh well maybe she will have come around by our next trip there.
