Kelsi's Homecoming Week with Family Pt. 1/2

Before she arrived my dad made many signs to decorate the house. 
Here I am cutting some.

Opi and many of my cousins stopped by work so we got a quick picture here.

Then Kelsi arrived at the airport (more on that HERE).
Afterwards we hit up Mimi's Cafe in Loveland, Colorado for brunch.
It was Kelsi's birthday the day she returned home from her mission!
Seriously, what are the chances of that?
Here she is with a birthday treat.

After brunch we hung out at my parent's home and Kelsi told us mission stories and showed us some souvenirs she brought home for us.
She brought Katinka this Brazilian outfit.
Unfortunately it was very small for her.
Apparently she thought Katinka was smaller than she really is.
Funny thing, Katinka used to weigh 5 lbs. but has lost 1 lb. over the last year haha and it still didn't fit that well! It was too tight and pissed Katinka off.

She brought home these clacky ball toy things that you are supposed to get to hit each other...hard to explain. Do you know what I am talking about?
They were a big hit with my brothers and Kevin.
Here is Zach trying to master the skills.

Kelsi wore this weird outfit to a ward party once haha...some holiday where Brazilians dress up as 'American hicks/cowboys' and celebrate...

Apparently in Sao Paulo, Brazilians love to make things out of foam.
Here they made Kelsi haha.

During the week the boys often swam in the lake.
Kevin joined them once.
Here is LuKus flipping off the dock!
He is so good at it and especially for being so young!
