Weekend fun - St Patrick's day edition

I want to thank you all for your input and suggestions regarding choosing between Costa Rica and Jamaica. We've decided that we are going to Jamaica, wooohoooo. As some of you pointed out, I don't think that guided tours are for us. In addition, the idea of leaving on Tman's birthday just didn't sit well with us. He might not know but we definitely will. Costa Rica is on our short list and we'll do our best to make it there soon.

As far as the weekend, you know we live for the weekend around here and we love visitors. So when my hubby's cousins told us that they were coming to visit, we were ecstatic. I took Monday off so that we could have more time to hang out. We had so much fun hanging out with them and their 2 boys 9 and 7.

The boys eating lunch, Tman was so proud to be sitting at the counter with the big boys
They had a tiny snake that they got from their travel and they actually let Tman touch it. We are not getting one of those Tman, don't get any ideas
 I love this picture of the boys. the big boys were trying to teach Tman how to write his name
 And of course we got a family picture when my mom came over
The next day we took them on the tour of the city. It was such a cold day that we decided not to take Jbird with us. He stayed at home with my mom while we walked around the city for hours

 The St Patrick's day parade was going on
Boys having fun on their daddy's shoulders as you do
Us and our Tman with the Washington monument and reflecting pool in the background

 The kids at the World war II memorial, they were jumping everywhere
We attempted one of those fun pictures. It looks more like Tman is holding a sword. He was so proud
Well hello there Mr. Lincoln
After hours of walking around in the cold weather we came home and got cosy. The boys went down in the music room and made loads of noise. Don't they look like a legit band?
Jbird and I of course joined in on the fun :). Tman just wanted to play every single instrument we have. He is a future rockstar that one.
The next day was spent relaxing and building things
 We played a very serious game of monopoly after dinner and I discovered that my Tman loves peas
What a great weekend as usual. We love our visitors and always look forward to hosting people. If any of you came to visit, we'd make sure to show you a good time :).
