After touring Kory's campus we came back to the apartment and Kory made an AMAZING Jumbolia for dinner! Anybody that knows Kory knows he is capable of anything in the kitchen, and he did not disappoint, and to top it off we also had artichokes!!!
Everyone chowing down!
Saturday morning we headed out to the "Farmers Market", wanted to show them the amazing food and diverse culture opportunities
Grandma and Maddi looking @ some homemade cards. The first time we attended the farmers market Maddilyn saw these cards and wanted to get one for each grandma, I told her she can make better ones, I love that she is constantly thinking of them.
Norma and Kael shopping, looking for something special! Norma was so fun to have her she played with the girls, brought tons of fun to each adventure, and was fun to shop with!
Then we hoped in the car and headed to Syracuse to eat @ Dinosaur BBQ and shop at the Carousal Mall. The kids were such troopers!
We had heard about this amazing WORLD KNOWN BBQ place, so we typed it in to the GPS and headed there... Heard it was to DIE FOR! We arrived ONE hour after it opened and OH MY GOSH, it was packed, I mean PACKED .... wait time of 2 1/2 hour wait with 3 kids...um NOT!
So on the Mall!
Riding the carousal with Grandma!
JJ on her horse! Maddilyns picture didn't turn out sorry Maddi!
We miss them so much. After riding we were off to shop... and shop!
My mom is NOT A SHOPPER! But she is a trooper, and she was such a good sport, thanks mom!
AND THANKS TO THIS GUY......
He pushed kids, took pictures, and was a bigger trooper than the kids!
After a full day of shopping and playing we headed to a fine dine @ McDonalds!
It wasn't on the schedule but it was perfect, not the best food, but the BEST COMPANY!!
Sunday morning the kids had their Primary Program and my Mom got to come with us!! Maddi had a speaking part and Kael sang her guts out! Thank you Mom!
Then we went SWIMMING!
My kids are fish!
Liam showing off his suit he hasn't wore for 2 months... excited to put it back on!
Headed to the pool!
The water was CHILLI so we spent alot of time in the hot tub!
Back to the room for baths and PIZZA!
Sorry mom, you weren't looking at the camera, but we loved every minute you visited us!
On the last day with our visitors we stopped off @ a costume shop...

Off to Stewart Park! Aunt Norma so so so sweet to keep up with us and play, play, play!

Maddilyn is pretty good with the camera, Kory had class all morning, we missed him!

Taking in a little more of Ithaca's BEAUTY... I am talking about these four beauties!
Lunch @ Panera... yummy soup and pumpkin cookies that were so confusing! The kids loved all the attention and so did I.. I loved having someone to bounce ideas and jokes off of, loved the company. I am a very lucky girl, I have great family! Love you.
