This is Fauneil with our good friend Erin Yonce. She and her children, Dylan and Evan, live in Missoula, Montana. Once in a while, they will take a trip to Zions National Park, and we are always lucky to have them stop for an over-nighter at our house.
Fauneil picked me up from work and said, "We have visitors that will be at our house in 60 minutes. Can you whip up a meal in that time?" The pressure was on, but I was able to make spicy sausage soup and homemade chicken noodle soup in the nick of time. Fauneil finished cleaning the house.
The kids immediately got to work (play, rather). McCann and Evan loved the Geo Trax set.
Dylan built a cabin out of Lincoln Logs.
SIDE NOTE: Dylan has the coolest pair of Converse. She also educated me about how to order custom-made Converse at Converse.com. Pretty cool!
McCann, of course, had to show us his tumbling skills.
We lit a fire and...
roasted marshmallows. This photo is blurry, but it's Dylan blowing out her marshmallows that caught fire.
Here is Evan holding one of his perfectly roasted marshmallows. He makes the BEST roasted marshmallows I have EVER eaten. Perfectly crispy and golden on the outside and gooey on the inside. Mmmm!
Much of the evening, we sat around and "caught up." It was wonderful.
We got up early the next morning, so they could get on their way to Zions Park. You can see through the window that it is still dark outside.
We sent them off after a breakfast of buttermilk biscuits and scrambled eggs. It was great having you over Erin, Dylan and Evan. Hope we get to see you on your way back to Montana.
