when the zurchers come to town–part 1

My in-laws rented the cutest yellow house in Provo for their three week vacation here. 4 out of the 5 Zurcher boys and their families were here for the trip! (All the way from New York and Norway!) I won’t lie, I was a little apprehensive about three weeks of straight family time (haha 🙂 but it was a blast! Every day was crazy busy, but most of the time it ended with this, everyone on the front lawn hanging out. Perfect way to end a summer day I tell ya, especially if there is ice cream involved! (And with the Zurcher’s around, there is always ice cream 😉


If only you could see how many balls we lost in those bushes. 😉


The “Yellow House” was full of character. I could do a whole post about how cute it is!


Ellie loved all the attention and she LOVED playing with her cousins!


Erik and Ellie, the two “E” name cousins. Anytime Ellie would fuss, Erik would come up to her and say “Oi, Oi, Oi!” and she would settle right down. They had fun jabbering together (I’m pretty sure they were scheming. These two are going to be trouble together!)


Ellie is obsessed with cups and she loves when she can try it herself!


I guess that shows you how much Liesell wants a new camera. She let Ellie the Destructive play with hers 😉


This only lasted for about two seconds, so I’m so glad I caught it. Ellie sure loves her daddy.


Eating a cone (sans ice cream…this time). Grandma and Grandpa spoil her!
