When we woke up on Saturday morning, we all enjoyed some veggie omelets before heading over to our ward building for the annual Spring Cleaning. Dad and Sarah were great helpers vacuuming the pews and scrubbing down the artwork. After the cleaning, my dad even helped the bishop grill all the hamburgers and hot dogs for lunch!
We got home from spring cleaning and got all the kids fed and napped, then headed over to the Children's Museum of Dupage. It was SO much fun to watch Noa and Brooklyn discover new things, and it was also enjoyable to watch my dad enjoy his grandchildren.
Here is Grandpa Uda entertaining the grand kids from his water bubble.
There is a little place in the museum where the kids can use real tools to build something in the wood shop. Sarah helped Noa while Grandpa helped Brooklyn and I took pictures.
Noa loved anything that involved a ball. Here he is in the wind section of the museum watching his ball "float" in the air!
Brooklyn doesn't usually like the wind tunnel, but after she found some windmill toys she had a blast!
The kids played until the adults were officially worn out... and in the process were able to enjoy everything from musical instruments to wind machines, water worlds, and giant bubbles!
When we got home from the museum, Grandpa Uda took Brooklyn to the store to get her a "special treat". She came home with this adorable teddy bear that is now her favorite TV watching partner.
We got home from the store just as Grandma and Grandpa Hanks arrived from Michigan with Uncle Brian, Aunt Janna, Cousin Audrey, and Daddy in tow. They had all been in Ann Arbor for Brian's graduation. We were able to enjoy a few hours of their company before we all went to bed to prepare for Lily's blessing the next morning.
More on that tomorrow!
