July-2 Riggs Come to Town

Again, way back in April we had talked to the Riggs about coming to Utah for a visit. Although Justin and Katrina had come up a couple of times, their kids hadn't ever been to Utah. Due to some extenuating circumstances they ended up needed to come the same time as Sasha and her kids. The more the merrier!! The only real trouble was that our house was just too small, so they stayed at a hotel half a mile away.
The whole Riggs family flew in early in the morning. Ryan and I had been waiting and waiting and waiting for him to get a big check. It finally came through the morning they got here, what a blessing!!! So I was actually gone grocery shopping when they got here. Shopping for three families takes a long time and costs to much! 
So the first day everyone was here we decided to have a big BBQ and get out the water slide.
Welcome to Utah Justin, from Ryan!
The look of price in his face....
Ryan also filled 300 water balloons for the kids. They really liked that!
Sweet Dakota, he was so much more grown up since I had last seen him!
Jack never really wanted to throw the water balloons, he loved them too much.
Gunnar was ready to go!!
Ryan wanted me to take these pictures. What a nice Dad....
They all got him back, over and over and over again. Ryan was just as wet as they were by the end of the day.

Again, Ryan wanted me to take these pictures, although that last one is pretty funny. 

So the fight ended up being between Jack, Gunnar and Dakota against Zach.
Zach won most of the time, but everyone had fun.

They Kylie got really brave and joined the flight!
Mostly just getting Jack.

Again, Jack never wanted to throw/waste his water balloon. Here he's telling me it's his baby and singing it a song.

The whole afternoon we played in the yard and on the slide.
Us Mom's got ready for the BBQ inside.
Lilly thought the watermelon was a really fun ride!
Kendall is such a sweet dolly and was happy all the time, playing with toys in the highchair. 
Later that evening I found Jack and Kylie outside writing with chalk on the sidewalk.
Even though they hadn't seen each other in months and I'm not sure how much they really remembered each other, they became good buddies and played well together.
