Here are a few photos from the last little bit:
Nikki and Fia spider swinging - fun!
Mia's loving the licorice. By the time she was done both her AND papa were covered in red drool. :)
Mia walking with the help of Sara and Fia.
Sara loves to push Mia everywhere we go. She's such a good little mama!
This one of all of us girls was taken right after we picked them up from the airport. Man, we are going to miss them!!!
On Sunday we went on the Austin Duck Adventure. It's this bus/boat contraption that drives you on a tour around town and then drives into the lake and putters around the water as well. I'd gotten a great deal on Groupon before they'd come and so we were in a scramble to find a date that would work for all of us. I was a little worried how much the kids would enjoy it, but it was so fun. They gave us all these duck bill whistles that were a big hit with the three girls and I SO wish we could have captured the look on the girls faces when the big bus made a HUGE splash down as it drove into the water. Too too fun!!!
Our classy bus/boat ride looked like this. (from www.austinducks.com)
All aboard the boat/bus!
Almost everyone sporting their cool complimentary duck bill whistles (can you spot the party pooper?!?!).
Cheese! ...or should I say, "Quack?"
Mia was very relieved to find that mama was willing to share her duck whistle.
Mia LOVED the duck whistle, even though she couldn't make it quack, and pretty much chewed on it the entire ride. lol
My beautiful nieces taking in the water view after splashdown.
Man are we going to miss the Lindgrens! Thankfully we still have three more sleeps before they head home!!!
