Mom and Dad Barnett took Chad and me out to dinner while Amber watched the kids. Thank you guys! Then back to our house for cake and ice cream. We did Chad's birthday cake at my parent's house, too, on General Conference Sunday, but I didn't have the camera with me. My cousins, Michaeline and Melissa and her daughter, Amelia were there, too. Good times.
After getting all sugared-up on cake and ice cream, the boys start showing off wrestling and whatnot and all three of them ended up getting hurt: Colin and Chad bonked heads (ouch!) and Micah got hurt running away from Grandpa, I think.
Ella, Micah, and Mira Catherine really enjoyed the time they got to spend with their cousin, Amelia. She got to stay with us while her mom went to General Conference. They all loved the cat (a little too much maybe) and wouldn't let it go!
Tell me this isn't the most beautiful little dark-haired, dark-eyed girl! And what a character! All the kids were in make-believe world the whole time she was here. Today I overheard Ella tell Mira she missed Amelia because she'd gone back to China, which is up in the clouds. Hm. California, actually. Close enough.
