First we had Dave's parents and sister fly in on Friday morning. Sophie went with Dave to pick them up at the airport, and from that moment didn't let grandma out of her sight until they flew back to Texas on Monday. She loved having all the attention! Davey also enjoyed the company and seemed surprised to be put on the ground after they left, since he had pretty much been held by someone for three days straight.
On Friday night we had a surprise retirement party for my dad. He didn't know my mom had planned a dinner, or that my two sisters and their husbands had traveled from Washington and Oregon to be there. It was so fun to have the whole family together! And since the Howes were babysitting, Dave and I went to see Jungle Book afterward at the theater right by our house. I thought it was good; Dave thought it passed time.
On Saturday I had a bridal shower for my future sister-in-law Faye. She and my brother will be getting married in just a few weeks - so exciting! While I was at the shower with Davey, the Howes, Dave and Sophie visited BYU, the new Provo temple, and went to lunch at Brick Oven. Sophie thought their pasta bar was pretty amazing!
On Saturday night I had a dinner down in Orem for my Grandpa and Grandma Lambert's 80th birthday. It was great to hear so many stories and celebrate with them! Before the party we went to the gardens at Thanksgiving Point. I was only able to stay for a short time before I had to continue on, but the rest of the family had a great time. Right now is the Tulip Festival so there are beautiful flowers everywhere. They also had a bouncy castle and slide in the children's garden that Sophie enjoyed.
Video: Sophie wanted to roll down the hill, but didn't like the way grass tickled her so she decided to hitch a ride with Dave :)
Sunday was my mom's birthday, and we also blessed Davey at church. Afterwards, we had a small gathering at our house with some refreshments. It was great to have so much family with us this time. I'm going to do a separate post about his blessing day soon.
On Wednesday, after all our company had left, we went to a baby shower for my cousin's baby due in June. It was fun to spend more time with my grandma and some cousins, and of course Sophie enjoyed having some cake. We also saw Grandma on Thursday at my aunt's house in Orem, and will see her and my grandpa again at the wedding next month.
