We had a really fun week with Brendan, my nephew, who flew home tonight to Las Vegas. By the way, we had to have a new hand rail added next to our pool to pass the city inspection, and here it is. I actually like it and didn't think I would. Christopher and Brendan swam a lot.
We took him out for barbecue and he loved it. How can you not?
Christopher is a rib guy.
Brendan is one year younger than Christopher, but he played well with Lindsey too. They made a lot of Shrinky Dinks this week.
Uncle Kelly rocked by filling up Brendan's iPhone with music and videos. Plus we all enjoyed playing Rock Band with him.
The two boys loved staying up late every night and slept in the game room.
We went to the park in River Place one afternoon and they had fun taking pictures of each other being airborne from the swings.
Brendan's one goal for the week was to go to Sea World and ride the roller coasters a ton. We finally checked that off his list yesterday. It has been a rainy week!
It still rained yesterday at Sea World, but after a while the crowd cleared out, which made it better for the kids to ride tons of rides since there were no lines.
We baked some Cinnaman Streusel Muffins today after church. Brendan thought I scooped the batter really well. I told him I was a professional. Years of practice. (Okay, so that professional thing was a stretch.)
Here we are just before I took him to the airport tonight. And since he's such a cutie pie, and literally a professional (model), he struck a few poses for me. I had him pose by one of the many posters I've seen of him in various Old Navy stores--I asked the Lakeline Mall store for this one when it was no longer being used.
He thought this was funny because this was taken more than a year ago and he looked younger.
Brendan was such a pleasant guest. He was so much fun to have visit and we enjoyed his company so much.
He starts fourth grade tomorrow!
As an unaccompanied minor, I got to escort him to the gate until he left. Remember the good old days when anyone could do that?
