A DeGraw Visit

Doug's brother Matt gets to come to Phoenix every so often for work, and the last time he came he brought his kids, Payton and Macy, wife, Deanne, and mom Nancy. It was SO fun to have them visit for their spring break. Averi always loves a good visit from "Nammy", and having Matt, Deane, Payton, and Macy there too made her week even awesomer!! Since Matt's work paid for his hotel, they stayed there and the kids and Nammy stayed with us. Averi was in Heaven getting to share a room with Macy (who insisted she sleep on the floor next to Averi's bed). Their hotel had a heated pool so we spent a LOT of time there soaking up the sun while the girls swam their little hearts out! They seriously could have swam from dawn til dusk if we let them!

Here's the kiddos on their first day here. Payton and Macy gave Kadence and Averi super cute Easter presents with little stuffed animals and candy in them.

It was Dougs birthday the day they arrived so we celebrated with cake, then two of doug's friend's came over seperately to give him cake as well... so we had a LOT of cake!

Now, it really doesn't get much cuter than this, am I right?!
I had to go help out at a funeral one day while they all went shopping. Apparently Kadence was quite infatuated with Payton :)
Some yummy Easter treats we made together:

 We went to Estrella Mountain Ranch one afternoon and ate,walked around the lak,e and fed the ducks.
The ducks attacking Averi for a taste of bread.
 Leave it to Payton to actually PICK UP one of them! Still not sure how or why she did but it was hilarious!
Averi's friend Kaige secretly hid a bunch of Easter eggs in our front yard one night, so they got to go hunt for them in the morning. Such a cute and fun idea!!
Their findings:
 Kadence seemed to  really like Payton the whole time so here they are just chillin' on the couch together :)
Eating pizza and ice cream on the patio
Payton and Macy tried really hard to get Kadence to walk while they were here but unfortunately they werent successful. I think they actually did get her to take ONE step that I saw from the corner of my eye but I probably shouldn't count it since that was 3 weeks ago and she hasnt taken another one since then. Boo.

I think if Kenley had the chance, she would leave us and go live there where she could swim year round. That surprise Kaige did was SO cute! I want to remember that too. The treats you made look so cute and yummy! And I agree that little Kadence in her swimsuit is as cute as it gets! Such cute cousins too!
