a visit with my family

My parents, sister Misty, and our nephew Hayden managed to make it up to visit us over the weekend. They came up on Saturday and left yesterday. It was too short of a visit if you ask me. We went to the pool on Saturday and got in the cold tub with the little guy. (for those of you who don't know, our pool has two hot tubs, one is kept hot and the other is known as the cold tub) He seemed to enjoy it once he got used to the water. After swimming we went to grab a bite to eat at Cheddars for dinner. It was delicious as usual. After we got back from eating, I put the new ice cream attachment to our mixer to work and made up some home made cookies and french vanilla ice cream. I was really happy that it turned out so good. Ian and I are going to try a fruit sorbet next time. After the little guy helped his uncle Ian play on the computer we played a new board game we bought called, "Smart Ass" and that was a lot of fun. We laughed so hard, I ended up getting a headache. (Don't worry mom and dad Faas, we will be bringing it with us on the trip because it's that much fun) We played two rounds of it, and then called it a night because at this point it was midnight. We crashed and everyone slept in until about 8:30 the next morning. The family left around noon and I was sad to see them go. I got some cute pictures of Ian and the little man playing computer together so I will post those next.
