Aunt Taryl & Grandma Vicky's Visit!!

Taryl and her mom have been on the East Coast for the last 10 days- they flew out to see Caleb's graduation from Harvard!  Our family had initially planned on going up to Boston and spending a weekend doing the touristy thing in Boston with Taryl and Vicky but then a little thing called cancer got in the way and messed those plans up.  SO, Taryl and Vicky being the awesome people they are, decided to drive the 4 1/2 hours down to see US for the weekend!!  Isn't that great??

They got in Friday night and had to leave Sunday morning.  It was a short trip but we packed a lot in!  Friday night was pretty laid back- we ate at 5 Guy's Burgers and watched a movie.  Taryl slept on an air mattress and Mykelle was happy as can be to give up her bed to her adopted "Grandma Vicky."

On Saturday Taryl and I hung out with the kids all morning while Vicky and Adam went into the city to see the 9/11 Memorial.  Then we had a neighborhood water balloon fight that was awesome!  The Guardiola's came out to join us as did the two other neighbor kids when they heard us out playing.  Both the funniest AND the worst part of the fight was the 7 year old neighbor girl chucking a heavy metal bowl of water at Adam's head!!  For some reason all the kids thought they were out to get Adam and this poor little girl didn't realize she should only throw the WATER at Adam and not the whole bowl!  He has a gash on the side of his head now that was bleeding!  We did have a good laugh in the end though :)

We went through 150 water balloons in minutes and had to go fill up the other 150 balloons! 

Saturday night Taryl ordered pizza for us and we bought the movie "Rio" to watch with the family.  It was really nice getting to hang out and have such a chill day with Taryl and her mom.

Of course Taryl and I had to be complete dorks and dress alike when we went out!  We were going for the twin sister look but it's a little hard when I'm so short, white, and bald and Taryl is kind of the opposite...  We had fun though getting weird looks and in general just acting like children.  :)
