We have had a great time these past few weeks with family. Chris's sister Nicole and niece Daisy came to visit September 7th - 14th. I really enjoyed getting to know them better without the hustle and bustle of a wedding. Last time they were in town Chris and I were getting married. YIKES !!!! Time goes by way to quick. We all hung out Monday night after they flew in. Nicole had plans on Tuesday so we ate breakfast and dinner together. I went to Seattle Wednesday afternoon (it was suppose to be in the morning but I was running late and got lost so morning turned into afternoon). Then Toph and I hung out with Daisy for the rest of the day while Nicole enjoyed a girls night in Seattle. Thursday the 4 of us and one of Nicoles friends spent the day together. We first tried out a new cupcake shop in Seattle, Yellow Leaf Cafe. super cute. I didn't actually try the cupcakes but they looked really good and everyone else said they tasted great.

We then went to the Point Defience Zoo in Tacoma. We just missed the popular time so there weren't very many animals, but the kids playground was awesome. Friday Nicole, Renae, and me spent some girl time together to celebrate Renaes birthday. Nicole treated us to pedecures and asian treats. I learned that I do not like coconut milk, especially with chunks of coconut. Saturday night we continued our celebration of Renaes birthday by going to Chuck e cheese. We sat by the singing animals. I hadn't been to Chuck e cheese for years but I do remember the singing animals. Woooohoooo.

The pizza was pretty good, the rootbeer was great (we don't buy soda very often so when I get around it I tend to go overboard), and the arcade was fun. Toph loved the singing animals, managed to take a nap with all the arcade noise, I was less than a second away from beating Chris at the racing game, and it was really fun watching Chris and Renae play Dance Dance.

Sunday night we went to Chris's dads house for dinner and had chicken. Chris said it was just chicken from Albertsons but I thought it was the best chicken ever. I think I was really hungry.
It was sad to see the week come to an end. I was really enjoying having more family around. Toph and Daisy really hit it off. Daisy would play with Toph all day long. She loved to bring him toys, read to him, sing to him, talk to him, pat his bumb and back like we do, and I think her favorite thing was to hold him. Toph is lucky to have such a loving cousin. Here is a few pictures of our fun week.
