Montana! Part 2

On Thursday, some of Tom's family were nice enough to drive up to Billings, from Wyoming, to see us. It has been a year and half since we have seen almost all of them! You can't imagine how much bigger all of the kids are since we've seen them! Ninny (Tom's mom - the grandkids call her Ninny) treated everyone to Chuck E. Cheese for lunch and the kids played for a long time. Then we headed over to their hotel and the kids swam for the afternoon. After that, we went to my parents, fed everyone, and visited for awhile. Then Friday morning, the cousins came back to play for awhile before they had to head home. Those who came up were Ninny (aka Glenda - Tom's mom), Linda - Tom's sister and her two boys Clay and Cole, Misti (wife to Chae - Tom's brother) with her kids Ryan, Caleb, Joseph, and Megan. We also got a chance to see Kayla, Tom's 2nd cousin who is living in Billings for the summer and Trent (who also lives in Billings), Linda's nephew. We had such a great time and I loved that Evan, Jordyn, and Carter got to see their cousins. I wish we could see them more often! Maybe some day soon we'll live closer to everyone. I'm so lucky to have such great in-laws! I also can't wait to hear Tom's reaction to the pictures of all the cousins! We all wished Tom could have been here to see everyone.

It sounds like you guys are having fun and staying very busy. Loos like the kids had a great time at Chuck E. Cheese. We love Chuck E. Cheese !! We just went back to Spokane and our kids saw their cousins (it's been 10 months). It makes me sad that we arent closer to our family but makes it so fun when we do get to see them, so I know how you feel. I hope you are getting lots of help with the kids, since Tom isnt there but I am sure you are. Carter is probably being fought over :) We'll have to do a playdate when you guys get home. Enjoy the rest of your stay!! Lori
