A visit from Aunt Whit! (part I)

We were so lucky to have my baby sister come visit us over her Spring Break a couple of weeks ago! Since we live away from both of our families, the kiddos don't get to spend NEARLY as much time as they want with their aunts & uncles... so they were over the moon about Aunt Whit coming to stay with us for a few days. Whitney is hilarious, fun, and insanely talented (did I mention she's going to be in Miss Utah in a couple of months?! So awesome), and we felt so lucky to spend time with her!

We kept things fairly low-key since baby Brighton was so new, but we were still able to get out and do some fun things! Whit was a great sport with the kiddos, and endured tons of kidz bop, silly bedtime stories, and Moana while she was here. Haha! It was pretty awesome.
^Welcome to Kentucky, Whit!^
We had to take her to one of our favorite BBQ joints on her first night here. Because when in Kentucky, yo! I'm all about the brisket and the creamy mac & cheese. Soooo good.
^Oh man, still dreaming about these sweet potato fries with cinnamon and sugar. HOLY YUM.^

The next day, we drove up to Louisville to take Whitney to one of the boys' very favorite places in the entire world... Main Event Fun Center! They seriously die over this place. It's like Disneyland to them. It's filled with arcade games, prizes, laser tag, obstacle courses, etc., and they're obsessed!

Holland got a little bit sleepy on the ride up... and here's pretty much the cutest photo to prove it.
^Totally a crooked angle, but I had to post it!^
Haha!! Kills me every time. I love that kid. 

When he woke up, he was ready to run around with the rest of us at the arcade! He is such a fiery, spunky boy, and I love that more of his personality is coming out these days. He is so fun!
^Ready to party!!^
^The most dangerous game ever with Holland. He's seriously going to break something one of these times! haha^

Such a fun time!

Before we left, the boys took turns picking obscure prizes with their tickets-- like vampire teeth (Boston), a giant neon ball (Holland), and a mini gumball machine (Camden). You've gotta love arcades! Haha. We had a blast though. It's all about the memories.
^Love this crazy crew.^
Then we headed home for some food and some baby-snuggling. Because we just can't get enough of our Brighton boy!! He is just the most precious thing in the world.

We are kind of obsessed with him.
^"Whatchoo lookin' at?"
The next day, we hit up one of the most hoppin' spots in town...the pet store! Haha!

Hey. It was freezing cold outside, and it was the best thing we could come up with. I mean it's basically like a mini-zoo to my kids, so they were thrilled! Plus it's free! Which is always a plus. Whit was a good sport to put up with our crazy, small-town shenanigans. Haha.
^Cute brother bums.^
^"Sishies, momma! Sishies!"^
So fun! We love having visitors. It's the best!
