We had a lot of people come support us
It wasn't until Jarom and Hilaree decided last minute to drive up to Utah that we realized we would have all 12 grandchildren together on the Brand side! The last time we tried to take a picture of all the grandchildren together was at our wedding, and even then for some reason we weren't able to convince Danny to get in the picture.

Our little family:))
My sister Katelyn, her husband, Colton, and their cute two boys visited all the way from Florida for the week. It had been a year and a half since they last were able to visit so we were so happy to see them! It was Jack's 4th birthday and since he likes Curious George, I made him a Curious George birthday cake! I think he liked it:))
We went back to the mothership and set up the brand new volleyball net in the backyard! All the boys had to test it out. Ryan was so cute helping them all play together. Noa and Braxton against Ryan, Danny, and Ollie. Pretty fair, I'd say.
The next morning Ryan surprised me with yet another half day at work!! Which meant we could drive down to American Fork together again and spend another fun afternoon with the family:)) We decided on the nickel arcade with Katelyn, Colton, their boys, and Danika!

There was a little carousel with a zebra that Norah quickly became obsessed with and which also caused a crying fit when we finally had to pry her away.
We won enough tickets from the games for a couple of balls for Norah and Jack
(or "Jacket", as Norah calls him).
We had so much fun! It was a long couple of days for Norah. When we got home she made a little bed for herself on the floor while I rocked Lucy before bedtime. :))
