Another Visit from Lolo

We were thrilled to see Loraine again last week.  She wasn't planning on visiting UT this trip, but she felt that she needed to meet Holland...  And we were so thrilled to see her again.  We crashed the Knudsen house several days in a row to see her.

We had a giant Costco chocolate cake along with our game of pinochle to celebrate Trishmas...

It's been 2 years already.  Hard to believe.
Nolan had a FANTASTIC time playing with Dane & Jack.  They have the most amazing back yard, and the boys made good use of it.

I saw this photo that Lillie posted on facebook right before Loraine arrived, of them together when Lillie was about 2...
And I forced her to restage it.

13 now!

Jen's kids were totally enamored with Holland.
Luckily, Holland can sleep through ANYTHING once she's out for the night, and she let them love on her while she slept.

Ben was able to take the kids to the zoo with them the next day (I had to work, so I didn't get to join them)  
Apparently I mostly missed a lot of heat and people...
And some ice cream cones.
We managed to snag a fantastic double stroller from KSL classifieds for a STEAL!  I am so glad we have it.  & even more glad that we didn't pay full price for one. Who knows how much longer Nolan will dig the ride vs. the walk...

Luckily, Holland thought it was a pretty sweet way to see the zoo.

 We're so glad Lolo got to visit and meet Tiny.  
& we're hoping it won't be too long before we see her again.

Absolutely fabulous, Mel. The smiles, the ice cream, the sweet love of children on her sleeping Wee Tininess. Love it all. -- and on the Peg... Miss N loves it more and more while the Mr Wiggles is the wild card these days... Go Figure.

Love it all! Especially your sweet smile! And I second Mel's comment on the Peg. Lil Max still surprises me and loves riding in it -- his favorite thing to do is to hold Sam's hand...couldn't do THAT in a tandem! :)

That pic of Lillie and Loraine is cracking me up! So glad we got to see her too.
