this month we've had two super house guests of Russ' - his brother Mitch and his step-dad Tim.
they came for very different reasons, and Mitch's stay can be summed up in this picture:
1. Cafe Rio. he was here for 16 days and they ate Cafe Rio 11 times.
Russ has been quoted by all our couple friends as saying some version of "let's go to Cafe Rio, i mean why go anywhere else? i can get some poo-poo chicken for $15 or Rio is always good for $8" when deciding where our date meals will be.
but even Russ, Rio's most die hard loyalist, told Mitch the last day
"I dont' think I can do Rio again, bro." Mitch loves it more than Russ, officially.
2. trudging in after a 10+ hour work day looking like they just got the whistle at a coal mine. so filthy.
picture evidence lacking, we were nonetheless grateful to have Mitch here to color with Hayes for hours and hours, (Hayes still says "Mama, I want Meech.") for carrying 22+ pounds of Cal and his heavier than lead carseat around for me.
and for taking a huge workload off of Russ. he's been busting a move as a general contractor / worker on his buddy's house and needed all the help he could get!
Russ' stepdad Tim however, came for one reason:
to enjoy himself. i never appreciated the term Staycation (the cheesiest) until now.
having your husband off work with a guest who wants to see/eat all Utah has to offer is the bomb! the calorie tracking app on my phone literally froze Saturday night when i tried to log everything i ate that day.
here's a quick sneaker at the agenda:
Tim is an expert mechanic and so of course Russ had him working on the Bronco every spare minute. it's looking so so good since the last Bronco update TWO YEARS ago!
more with Papa T to come.
