in-laws

lando's parents came to visit! tim had some business in salt lake so lori joined in and they headed up our direction. our first visitors! we were so excited! we showed them a good time. frontier pies, cocoa bean and a rexburg tour that lasted all of 10 minutes. (rexburgs the place to be, i tell ya.) tim and landon talked about engineering all through dinner while lori and i looked at eachother every now and then to shrug our shoulders and make the "that went right over my head" hand signal.
^one civil engineer one someday mechanical engineer... two very smart guys. don't they look so much alike? tim is the best father-in-law, he is always so interested in our lives and has the best advice. i'm convinced tim is the most in-tune person i've met. any time we've needed something tim has offered it before we've asked, called at the right time, or sent a really nice text on a day i really needed it. i have been so homesick the past few weeks and of course, tim calls to tell me they are coming! these boys have so many similar interests they could talk for hours.
^my mother-in-law. you know the horrible mother-in-law stereo type? this DOES NOT apply to lori. i couldn't have asked for a better one, honestly. she is the sweetest, funniest, most loving, light-hearted, laid back person (i could go on....) every time i'm with her we are usually just giggling about something. from the day i met her she's welcomed me with open arms. landon says his biggest memory of his mom growing up was her down on the ground playing with him, outside playing games, building a sand castle or coloring with him, i love that.  um, she let me marry her only son and she bakes the best cakes, i think she's alright.

thank you, thank you tim & lori! it was so good to see you. we love you!

UM... I LOVE your hair/bangs/outfit. You look gorgeous!

Kate, you are so pretty. And I love that shirt!

Brother Lines is so great. I remember him taking all of our friends to the lake just a few hours before Lando got set apart as a missionary. He was even patient enough to pull them behind the boat on a surfboard (they'd end up falling off after a few seconds) He's the nicest.

Kate, you are STRIKING in that picture of you and your mother-in-law. Seriously gorgeous. And I know this sounds redundant (due to the comments above), but your hair is beautifully long. Yay for wonderful MIL's! So glad I got lucky too, and I don't have to deal with any of that crazy in-law drama...
