this week we had some visitors. visitors that we have missed dearly over the last year since we have been in utah and they have been in germany. you might remember them from some of our good times posts in mississippi. but anyway, our good friends, the olsens, are currently in the states for a dental conference and to visit family. we were lucky enough to earn a couple of evenings of their time and we made the best of it!

July 2011 - Getting Close

on friday night they came down to bountiful and together we all enjoyed bountiful's days of '47 fireworks extravaganza. then, tonight they came down and we all went down to gateway to shop a little and let the kids run wild in the fountains.
A little closer
being all boy, william got right in the mix, clothes and all and got soaking wet. he loved the fountain. sadie and london were a little more "dainty" in their rendezvous with the water. so, as you can see in the pictures from today, will is dripping wet and london is perfectly dry. but even with will being so wet, it didn't keep her far from his side . . . these two reconnected after a year like it was nothing. and they REALLY reconnected. good thing their parents were there to supervise . . .

we love you, olsens! come live by us so we can hang out all the time!
Boom! The First Kiss.

dad's weekend in bountiful

this weekend my dad came to visit us while my mom is off galavanting in switzerland with my brother's family. since he arrived in SL at 4:30pm yesterday afternoon, we have gone on two 22 mile bike rides. the first one started at 10pm last night and it was awesome. we rode antelope island by the light of the full moon (and our by our lights on our bikes and our awesome glow sticks, necklaces and bracelets).

then we woke up this morning and hit the legacy parkway trail. fun times and matching jerseys. we are pretty awesome. or at least we think we are :)
