We just had the most wonderful visit with my parents this week. We had not seen each other since CHRISTMAS. That is the longest we have ever gone without seeing each other and it was really hard! Especially in the first year of a baby’s life. They just change so quickly. So anyway, we were so happy to have them from Tuesday-Monday and the chance to just soak up all of the time we had with them.
The visit started off a little rocky because they arrived at our home before I had even gotten back from taking BOTH girls to the pediatrician for high fevers, hurting ears, and the like. Abigail came home with a strep throat dx and Mabel with a viral infection of her own. Not a great start to our visit! But after a day or two of pumping meds, the girls finally got back to feeling like their usual happy selves and then it was back to normal!
Grammy helped the girls dye and decorate Easter eggs, did Resurrection Eggs, made our Easter meal…and put together their Easter baskets. So yeah. Grammy basically dominated this holiday.
They had marvelous fancy tea parties that involved copious amounts of sugar water and milk.
And played with all of Abigail and Mabel’s toys. On the floor!
They also played and played outside. Jailbreak, swinging, roller coaster dream, the pound game, and any other outside activity Abigail could coerce them into.
We always enjoy special treats when my parents are in town. Five guys being one of them this time around!
We got to watch lots and lots of March Madness and got to teach Miss Mabel allll about it.
One morning my Mom needed a few things from the store, so my Dad took Abigail with him to go get them. They came home with a dozen donuts, four boxes of Frozen themed gelatin(for jello jigglers, Mom!), and of course- photographic evidence of a Dumbo ride.
On their last day we played at our park, visited in my living room, and just enjoyed being together. The next time they are here it will be for Mabel’s 1st birthday. (Which I can hardly speak of, so let’s not talk about it)
While they were here Jim and I had the chance to go on a morning date, I got to go to Target! by myself!, and I got to take Abigail on a special one on one pajama drive thru picnic(her request) to CFA. All special things that never get to happen without them in town- so we just really, really appreciate and love my parents and are so thankful that they were here!
Until next time!
