Corrie came to town!

My awesome sister Corrie drove from Washington with her friend Nate to come for a quick weekend in Utah to visit family and friends. We first met them at Nielsen's Frozen Custard Thursday evening...and enjoyed some sweet, frozen, deliciousness.
While enjoying our frozen custard in the old school diner, Nate and Adam talked about cars and Corrie and I talked and laughed about all things random.
Goodness that girl can make me laugh like no other.

In the morning we enjoyed some yummy stuffed french toast...I shared how I made them in my last post here :)
Brooks LOVES his Aunt Corrie, and his new friend Nate. They were both so sweet with him. In the picture below, we were all laughing at how Brooks was sipping/biting/heavy breathing as she tried to give him a drink of yummy pineapple orange juice.

And later that afternoon we met Adam for lunch. Such a gorgeous sunny day, perfect for a picnic at the park.
Brooks slept in his car seat while we played a rousing game of Rummikub.
Favorite game of the Stum fam :)
It was Nate's first time playing...and he WON!! :)
Adam had to go back to work, but we stayed a bit longer...Corrie and Nate had a lot fun climbing a couple trees...they are so cute :)
Brooks looking WAY UP HIGH...in the picture below, can you see Nate at the very top!! I was only having a slight panic attack. haha
Then we went to play on the swings...
This was Brooks' first time on the swings, and he was SO SO CUTE laughing and kicking his legs like crazy :)
Corrie got this fun video...I love Brooks' sweet giggles when he swings up, close to the camera, er phone ;)

I can't get enough of my Corrie! We sure love her :)
Thanks so much for coming for the short but SWEET visit sister!

So I TOTALLY second the "there's nothing like a sister" sentiment. So glad you are one of mine ;0)

And, I've got a question. Is there somethin' brewin' between Corey and that cute boy? Is she still planning on a mission or is she considering a misison of another variety? So intersting . . .

P.S. I'll have to try that french toast. I looks divine.

Mand & Rach - You guys are so sweet to remember :) Yes, she's definitely still planning and preparing for her mission to Argentina in May. She just happened to be introduced to Nate (a stellar guy) a week before she received her call in the mail. what are the odds right? ;)

I love your photos! How do you always look so cute?? It's great that you and your sister get along so well and love each other as much as you do! I think it's wonderful to have a sister you can talk to.

I just read your stuffed French Toast post and I cannot wait to test these out on Noah! He'll love them!

Aww. What a fun time. You have a precious family! Nothing can ever compare to the time spent with them. I know you treasured it! My sister makes me laugh like no other too. Sisters are the best.
