A gaggle of Gatchel's!

 Grandpa Gary and Uncle Keith visited this weekend and we all had a blast!  They arrived Friday night to two very excited kiddos delight.  On Saturday morning everyone headed over to Home Depot for the kids build, then to the park for some play time and back to the house for some lunch.  Then Grandpa Gary, Mikayla and I headed out to do some special shopping.  Mikayla came home with new sheets, the prettiest princess blanket, a Cinderella pillow (Aunt Sarah you would be so jealous!) and a princess movie.  After we got back, Noah got his special time with Grandpa - a trip to his first Tigers game!  The boys (decked out in gear to support their teams - Grant and Noah in Tigers, Gary in Brewers and Keith in Cubs) had a great time watching the Tigers shut out the Twins 8-0.  Noah even got to ride on his first ferris wheel at the park.  They came back and we all watched my beloved Wolverines get beat by the Irish.  Let's be honest, ND didn't beat us - we beat ourselves.  6 turnovers boys, really?  Anyway...  This morning we got up and Grandpa Gary showed off his mad skills making Mickey Mouse pancakes!  Then everyone set up the tent Grandpa Gary brought us in the playroom.  I may never get Noah and Kayla out of it again.  Phew - what a weekend!  We were glad that they came for a visit and look forward to seeing them again soon :)
