Meanwhile, Ali has learned to do some aerobics to try to help mom get back in shape.
She even trys to help Aubrey by encouraging her to get up out of her bouncy chair, and offering to sit in it for her.But all in all, Ali and Aubrey love each other.
And that makes Aubrey happy.
So Dave and Candace and Courtney came down to visit. We went to Excalibur, but found out they turned the famous free family magic show stage into a huge bar. So we had to go downstairs and play games instead. Danielle beat Brian in the horse racing game and won a toy elephant for Ali.
On Sunday, we had the blessing and had fun trying to get Danielle's family and our's in the picture. Dan just made it in.
Granny was thrilled to be able to be there with us and hold her 73rd grandchild...or somesing like 'dat.Grandpa was hungry, so Ali helped feed him.
Then on Monday, we followed our Bollard family tradition and went to the park to feed the ducks.
And with Dan working full time and going to school, he enjoys his sleep more than ever before. As you can see, however, he still finds time to help with the kids.
