A Nice Surprise

Friday night is movie night. We make homemade pizza and watch a movie together. It's our little family tradition. This week though, our little family tradition turned into big family fun when we got a surprise visit from Andy's brother Curtis (Kleinman brother #3) and his family. They were passing through Utah from Arizona, en route to Idaho to visit Courtney's (our sister-in-law) family. How lucky for us that our house isn't too far from the freeway and they were able to hop off and spend several hours with us.

As we ate BBQ chicken pizza, the kids watched "Robots" and the grown-ups chatted. Andy and Curtis talked school, work and random things that only the Kleinman boys talk about, while Court and I shared favorite craft blogs and talked about things that only moms talk about. Ava was in heaven having baby Bracken around to dote on and Jax just couldn't get enough of his big boy cousin Nathan.

Watching "Robots"

The I am a Child of God Museum in the Church History Museum
Saturday we met Curtis/Courtney and the kids up in Salt Lake for some fun on Temple Square followed by (FINALLY) some yummy Mexican food. That's right, I said it, after two years and with just two months left in the great state of Utah, we found a worthy Mexican food restaurant. It's called the Red Iguana. I had seen it on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" on The Food Network (love that show) and have been wanting to try it since. So glad we did! We all loved it, the kids enjoyed their bean burritos and we all enjoyed some quality time together! Thanks for the fun Curtis, Courtney, Nathan and Bracken!!!

so fun! I love surprises like that! And the "I am a child of God" play museum is so great for kids. We went there one Sunday and the kids had a lot of fun.
