Busy week, part three: The visit (revised)

This past weekend was Drill for Justin so Dayna, Zak and Caycee came to visit. John will be starting his part-time job in a few days and won't be able to visit for a while so he, Sarah and Cooper came for the weekend. Adam had Drill also so he wasn't able to join the fun.

We had beef roast and potatoes and carrots but for some reason I usually think spaghetti is a good idea when the kids are here, so we had that too. The moms thought to take the kids' shirts off to avoid spaghetti sauce stains - smart moms. Here is the before picture.

And here is Zak's after picture - not much difference. He's getting pretty good about handling that fork!

And the other two . . .

It was John's birthday so then there was cake. He said it wasn't necessary to have candles and singing, but I didn't hear anything about the cake not being necessary. I heard "mmmm, cake".

Cooper hurt his foot a few days ago. Sarah and John were worried that he would want to be running with the other kids and put too much strain on the injury but that's not how things worked out . . .

This chair seemed to be a popular spot. There was some jostling for territory and a few spills and lots of laughs. Also a singing lesson from Zak: the ABC song and Tinkle, Tinkle Little Star.

Lots of applause for Zak when he finished. Yeah, Zak!

The dark marks on Zak's & Caycee's arms are temporary tattoos. Their other grandpa has lots of tattoos so they are big fans. And, yes, the kids did wear clothes - they weren't running around in just diapers all weekend!
All in all it was a great weekend but it went by too fast. Before we knew it Zak was having an earnest conversation with Grandpa. "You don't want me to go?" "But I have to." Too sweet.
