Family, Day 1

I finally had a good reason to buy some of the cut flowers I often admire at the farmer's market.  Family came to town!

The kids were thrilled when the RV full of family pulled up in front of the house.  They had the most fun playing hide and seek in and around it.

Finn patiently waited for Blueberry Buttermilk Cake, a family favorite, this morning...or maybe not so patiently, but definitely cute!

What a wonderful treat to eat the Blueberry Buttermilk Cake outside in the beautiful spring morning.

Paul's brother, Joe, brought this experiment kit to do with the older kids.

They had the best time mixing the chemicals and watching the colors change.

Meanwhile, Finn received some assistance building a very tall tower with his tree blocks.

And Paul's Uncle Joe, our hero, solved our conundrum by whittling the very dull twig crayons into something usable once more.  Thanks, Uncle Joe!
