A week with the Ellico's!!!!

The Ellicos came to visit us this last week. It was a blast!
We have known them since Lizzie was a tiny baby. Their oldest is 6 months older than Liz and all of the rest of our kids fall pretty close in age. Lexi and Katie are 2 weeks or so apart. Cassie and Annika are 2 yrs apart and Racheal and Aleah are about a year apart. It works out perfectly. We have fun playing games and watching movies. This time we planned a bunch of fun things for them to do. Here is a hightlight of the week we had.
We took everyone to the veterans pool in Provo. They have water slides and a nice kids area to play in. Lizzie, Lexi, Anni, Jeff, and Katie were doing spins off the side.

Aleah was playing in the kids pool while Racheal was on the water slide with her dad.

Katie having fun!

Jason coming off the slide with Rachel, she loved it!

This was after bowling at BYU. I had the kids stand in order from oldest to youngest.
Jeff, Liz, Katie, Lexi, Anni, Cassie, Leah, Rachel and Addi.

Not sure what this face is????

Melissa getting ready to strike!

Jef showed us some sweet moves. Incidentaly he won the game with a high score of 123 not bad for a kid who has never bowled before. I was secong with 118 and (My) Jason and Melissa tied for 3rd with 115.
It was fun and the kids were very tired!

This was a contest to see who could stay seated the longest. They all won ice cream from coldstone.

We had a birthday party for Racheal. She turned 5

They said if I made a cake they would come and so I jumped all over that deal!

We love u Ellicos!!!!
