Family, Day 2

The kids started out the day playing with the new gifts that the family brought.  Finn played with his new fire station from Plan City.


Elizabeth created bracelets with a glass bead set.


Philip built a Lego Star Wars ship.



Later, when the family arrived back at our house from their hotel.  The kids were thrilled to engage them in various activities.  Elizabeth explained the in-and-outs of the Ugly World to Dr. Joe (Paul's brother).


And David (Paul's brother-in-law) and Uncle Joe (Paul's uncle) helped Paulie build a bottle launcher.



They decided to send Moxy, Elizabeth's Ugly Doll, up for a ride.



Then Elizabeth decided to get in on the gravity-defying action
 by making a parachuting basket.



The evening saw Tara (Paul's sister) helping Finn with his wooden puzzles,


while the big kids learned to play Sequence with Aunt Karen (Paul's aunt).
