Nate's parents came down to visit us for a week. First off, THANK YOU Grandpa and Grandma for a great visit! We wish we could see you more often! Second, sorry about the humidity! At first, they had talked about coming down in August, and Nate advised them not to because the humidity at that time of the year is REALLY bad.....so they came earlier, and had to deal with the horrible humidity anyways (the bad stuff came EARLY this year...can't wait to see what August is like). So we had temps around 94* all week with 90% humidity which = HOT AND DRENCHING. Anyways, we still had fun. There were some new things we wanted to go see, and unfortunately, pretty much all outside, but we braved it and did it. Just look "beyond" all that heat and humidity in the pics! On our first day out, we went over to Warren for the Pink Tomato Festival.
For his birthday, the kids and I got Nate a handheld GPS so he could do some geocaching. Basically, "treasure hunting". He thought it would be fun for him and Lainey (and Corbin when he's older) to do around here. Lainey is all excited about it and they've gone out a few times to find things. So, on our way home from Warren, Nate wanted to go find this one geo...but it was neat because right there in that area it was hidden, was some Mormon history.
Here's the first "treasure" that we've actually found (we've been out a few times, but had yet to be able to actually find the hidden object). And I was the one to actually find our first (hence, Lainey's not so happy face.....she wanted to be the one to find it). The pink hair...that's from the festival, not a normal everyday thing!
More of our other adventures from the week to come......

Finally break down and buy a new printer! But I'm so excited! It's the new Kodak printer that only costs you like $25 for both ink cartridges, and the printer alone was only like $20 more than buying new ink for the old printers...will definitely be worth the purchase! But, I'm so excited because now I can go back and do this....
Scan in all my old photos before we had digital! Here's a few I tested from our wedding. Sorry about the upside down one. I'm still figuring it out! But I swear it said I could scan multiple pics at a time and I could save them as seperate photos...so I've obviously got a lot to figure out still! So Christina and Jaime....paybacks are in the works....I have a lot of old photos myself!
