Whit's visit, part II!

We LOVED having Aunt Whit here in Kentucky with us for a few days. (See part I of her visit, here!)

We had fun showing her around our little corner of Kentucky, and showing off our new Brighton boy. I mean, just look at these next few photos. He is the sweetest!!
^Camden ADORES him. It is so precious.^
^Cuddling with Whitty^
Oh man. He's such an angel baby.

The older boys absolutely loooooved playing with Whit while she was here. They all had meltdowns when she left. It was rough! Haha. They just adore her.

Also, she brought her heelies (shoes with wheels on the bottom)...and that definitely won them over. She gave them "rides" on her back everywhere we went, and they giggled and giggled. It was pretty cute.
^Trying on Whit's glasses^

One day while she was here, we drove her out to see the Abraham Lincoln birthplace monument. (More photos of that place from an earlier visit, here!) It is really cool to see such a neat historical site, so we love taking visitors if we get the chance.

I think the boys' favorite part is running up and down the zillions of stairs as fast as they can. Which, while we're on the subject, can we please just find a way to bottle up kids' energy for adults?? I could really use some of that in my life right about now. Haha. But seriously.

^Favorite picture of the day, hands down! haha^
Such a fun time!

Another day when the weather wasn't as warm, we hit up the local bowling lane.

The boys loooove bowling, and I think they only almost cracked the floor once or twice from chucking the ball at the floor...so I'll call it a win!
^P.S., it was game day for Kentucky basketball. Gotta represent!!^
That night we went to our ward's luau-themed cake auction! The kids sported leis and ran around playing, while we snagged some of our favorite chocolate peanut butter cupcakes from one of the young women in our ward. 

Also, Jord did the Hakka with all of the young men up on stage, and it was awesome! Holland almost started crying because he was so terrified, but other than that, everybody loved it. Haha.
^Hakka time!^
^Terrified Holland. Haha!^
^Seriously. SO GOOD.^
^I am dying over this photo I accidentally snapped of Holland. So hilarious!^
^I love this kid!!^
Before we dropped Whit off at the airport the next day, we stopped to show her the Louisville temple, and then we drove across the Ohio River to hit up our favorite candy store: Schimpffs! Oh man, we love that place so much. With rows and rows of chocolate and pretty much any candy you can think of, it's every kid's (and my) paradise!
^Walking to the candy store with my little man^
^Lego candy!^
^Three boys on the Schimpff's pig. So classic!^
^They love their Aunt Whit.^

We had so much fun with my cute sister.
Thanks for coming, Whitney! We love you!!
