Uncle B comes to visit

My younger brother came for a visit this week. It was so fun to have him here, even if it was only for a couple days! Despite being young and having the energy and ability to get by on little sleep, our kids wore him out! We had a great time with Uncle B (Brenton), and he's welcome back anytime!!!! Here are some of the things we did during his short visit;
Trestin and Uncle B watching Bolt (which he is hooked on lately. While B was here he watched it at least 4 times, and it actually watching it now!) Taking him to Ferdinands for ice cream (made at WSU from the milk from WSU cows!), it's very tastey!

The observatory to watch the making of "Cougar Gold Cheese" which is quite famous

Of course we took him to see the bears! Than said that WSU is one of 2 schools in the states that has bears to do research with! So it's pretty cool! These two where out in the "play area."

These are the cages they are in when not out playing

At Walmart! B knows how to fix bikes, and I was given one for free a loooooong time ago (thanks Dara!) but it desperately needed some help. So here we are getting supplies. Garrick wasn't feeling good, so he's in the front part of B's cart laying down. You can see his blanket.

Poor sick dude! He ran a high temp, and was beat! Luckily that was his only symptoms! Today he's back at school after missing his first 2 days EVER!

Fixin' the bike

Everyone watching or "helping"
While I was cooking dinner, to distract the kids, B got some of his towels and they where "Super Heroes" flying around the house

We had a picnic (meaning we eat dinner on the floor while watching a movie) with Uncle B and watched Coraline. Chicken roll ups and nachos, they were pretty yummy!

Good-bye Uncle B! We will miss you! Come back and see us anytime!!!!

Wait a sec, do you have a single brother? How old is he? Where does he live? I have a sister-in-law who would love to be setup.

It looks like T just adores him. What a fun trip!
