we love visitors

This past weekend we had Mike's little sister and bro-in-law come visit for a few days. They arrived to a home with music blaring and no one being home at the time (Mike was at work and I had quickly left to pick up Sadie from my mom's)... but good thing the weather was nice oh, and the back door was open too haha

It was also Sadie's first time meeting Amanda and Coady. She was so shy at first, crawling in a ball and laying on the floor barely making any eye contact. But not even an hour passing by, she was all over the two. She LOVED them, especially Coady... pretty sure she forgot Mike even existed. Sorry Mike :P

Saturday, we ordered pizza and watched the fights.
Sunday, we lazed around for half the day, Mike took both Amanda and Coady out of the city to try his sled out for a couple hours. After, we went to the movies and watched Drive Angry in 3D -- it was an alright movie but it was a waste watching it in 3D i think... nothing very special about it being in 3D.

2 tickets to watch Drive Angry in 3D - $31.99
Popcorn and drinks - $14.34
Coady running up the escalator with drink and nachos in hand, tripping and trying to save his food therefore ending up with a deep gash in his knee - priceless.

So as we were on our way to the theatre, Mike and I get to the top of the stairs/escalator and as we're walking we a hear a crash. We look back and I see Coady pretty much layin on the escalator comin up with some nacho chips on the floor. He gets up limping towards the table with condiments on it and puts down his nachos and drink and rolls up his right pant leg up and all you can see is blood. He had run up the stairs, somehow lost balance or tripped and fell on the escalator. The edge of the escalator dug into his knee cap and it left a deep gash. It was so bad and so much blood coming out of it. It was nasty. All the while, both Amanda and Mike were laughing pretty hard (ok, I might have had a few laughs in there as well). Mike was totally enjoying it the most out of all of us I think. When we got home Coady cleaned it up and put a band-aid on it but it just wouldn't stop bleeding it. I was pretty disgusted looking it, I couldn't handle seeing all that blood. It left poor Coady gimp for the night and a bit the next day. Coady - now you know not to run up escalators :P

After cleaning up blood, we decided to play Monopoly - till 5 in the morning. It was a fun night tho.

Monday was Coady and Amanda's last day here. Everyone slept in pretty good considering we all went to bed at 5 a.m. We went to South Centre Mall and Chinook to do a little shopping. Sadie loved it, she was running around every where. Thank goodness Coady and Amanda were around cause I was running out of energy chasing her around. She is definitely a handfull, good thing she's cute haha. After we had a late dinner and just relaxed till it was time for bed.

So good having them visit. Mike definitely missed them. We were talking and he was saying how homesick he felt when they left and that if I had asked him if we could move up to Fort Mac, he would say "yes" just like that. We are excited to see the whole family when they come and visit when Mackenzie is born. It will be nice to see everyone again!
