Where's Aimee?

Steve's sister and her family were headed to Disneyland this week, and on their way they stopped by for a visit and left Aimee with us for a week. YAY!!! We had some fun times before they headed to CA, including swimming, going to see the Conservatory at the Bellagio, and the lions at MGM. Oh, and the girls got in dinner and a movie (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants...I liked the first one better). We had a houseful for a couple of nights but it was a lot of fun spending time with them.

Easton LOVED having aunt Aimee here for a week, and SO DID I! I am reminded at just how sick of me Easton gets whenever we have visitors...he is just overjoyed to have someone new (and in most cases, cooler) to hang out with. Aimee played with him, read him stories, taught him new tricks, and helped me so much while she was here. We also watched a lot of the Olympics and got our books read. Every spare second we had we were reading about vampires. I didn't want her to go home!


Sheridan's DELICIOUS frozen custard.

One of the reasons I wish Aimee and I lived closer is so we could go hiking together more often. She loves it too. We braved Red Rock even though it was so hot. We had a great time, but man, Easton is getting heavy. I made Aimee give me a break.

My parents got into town the day before Aimee left. Here we are playing a Jolley favorite...rummy. Obviously Aimee and I are the only ones taking it seriously.

Thanks for coming Aimee, and thanks Ryan for lending your wife to us for a whole week! When I was putting Easton to bed he said, "Where's Aimee?" We miss you already!

Glad you had so much fun with your SIL, and your parents. I'm jealous- I wish my family would come visit me and help entertain Nathan. I just count on the TV to do that these days. We need to get together this week!

How much fun is that? I'm sad that there was no time for a stop in Grantsville to see the "old" aunt. Oh well, I'll just have to head north one of these days......and south too.

Love ya tons, as always!!!!

I'm glad you all had fun. It was hard not having Aimee around for a little over a week but i made it. Easton is getting so big. Next time I'll have to take the time off work and just come down to see you all too. Thanks for taking good care of Aimee. she kept saying how much fun it was to be there with you guys and to play with Easton.

Aimee said...

You're going to make me cry all over again!!! I miss you guys so much and it makes it harder when I have to leave, but holy crap we had FUN! Thanks for letting me come crash for such a long time. I wish we lived closer so we can have fun like that all the time...maybe some day. Give E kisses for me and a great BIG HUG too and post the video of him playing baseball, its soooo cute. And Em, Um its green!

Emily said...

I know Aim, what am I going to do without you?! Not only will I not know when the light is green, but I will continue believing that all Olympic athletes are swimmers.

There's just so damn many of them!

Lani said...

Let the good times roll! I am so jealous! This whole week was sooooo WEIRD I kept thinking ...oh my last week before school Aim and I should do lunch...Aim and I should go shopping...Aim and I should....But NOOO Aim she was too far away with E-squared and Steve. I love Red Rock Canyon, but I don't think I could do it in August You've got to be Crazy!! Cool pics! Love you all.Tell Carol and Bruce I'm jeolous of them too!

Mary said...

Visitors make the littlest thing smore fun--especially if she's all about reading vampires and hiking in the blistering heat! Yeah for Aunties!

Lindsay said...

No WAY Easton could get tired of you, you are the coolest person on the planet! I started noticing the same thing with Allie though, she cries her eyes out when she leaves nursary. Most kids cry when their parents leave, she cries when her parents come back. Lovely.

Ilene said...

Of course you guys took your game seriously... you both were trained at the world famous Eugene Bunko club.

Brynne, Aaron and Cade said...

Holy cow! Sounds like a ton of fun!!! And that boy of yours is gonna be a heartbreaker! What a looker you have there!!! You're lookin' pretty hot yourself (as always! :)
