Cousins Come to Town

It has been a busy week for us! William's younger brother came to town from Texas and stayed with us for a few days.
They have three adorable kids, all of which we adored playing with. Perry was especially popular. We haven't been around a baby in  a really long time. 

While they were here they wanted to go visit the This is the Place Heritage Park.
The first thing to do when we go there was to go find the Great-great-great grandfather that little Perry is named for.
His name is listed on the monument as being in the first party of Saints to enter the valley. This was really neat for my kids. Plus it gave them something to identify the name Perry with besides a Platypus on the Disney channel.
Little cousins, big monument.
We practiced some pioneer chores. Glad we don't have to do laundry this way anymore.
Audrey was pretty good at it! Plus it helps to be this cute!
Nikolaus was excited for the pony but he was really holding out for the train.
Yeah for the train! Especially if you can get your dad to go too!  I think the kids favorite thing there though was the panning for gold. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures because I was overcome with gold fever and couldn't stop panning myself! It was such a fun day with cousins!
