While Jim was gone for the week in London recently, my Mom came and stayed with us the entire time! We were also lucky enough for my Dad to come join us for the end of her stay as well.
It was such a fantastic visit(as always) but this time in particular left me begging my Mom not to go home to Phoenix and to just stay with me instead. Unfortunately, my parents are super young and cool so they actually have a life that they had to get back to. Ha!
We did so many fun things while they were here. Nothing huge, just lots of special little things, so I thought I would put together some of the pictures from their time here!
Grammy took the girls to play a few different times while I had various appointments or errands to run sans kiddos. One night I hosted a big pinterest party at the house, so the girls went and played at the mall for a while and Mom took some of the cutest pictures of them! They had a blast.
And even though it was June/July they braved the weather and made it to the park! We also made it over to the splash pad while Grammy was here too!
They read so, so many books and played with so many toys! It has been really fun watching both of my parents navigate TWO grandbabies!
And this guy here. He is 1000% wrapped around this little girls finger. He is her very favorite person in all of the world and all she has to say is some sort of Mabel version of jump and Pappy asks “how high?”
They made it out for breakfast and checkers at Cracker Barrel one morning. Breakfast foods are both my girls favorites, so that was a major hit!
Apparently Abigail totally crushed my Dad in checkers so she was pretty thrilled about that, and talked about it quite a lot.
We also got to take Grammy and Pappy swimming one afternoon! Abigail got to show them all of her favorite slides and Mabel got to get in on the action too. It was so much fun.
And a shout out to my Mom for patiently hanging out on our staircase all week as she helped Mabel learn the in’s and out’s of stair climbing. She was a true champ. Bless her.
They hung out for fireworks and it was so much fun to have them here! We don’t usually get to celebrate the 4th together, so this was a real treat!
We also hit up a few more restaurants while they were here, they took Abigail to see Finding Dory, I didn’t have to fix breakfast for an entire week(glory), Jim and I got to go out on a date night, my Mom and I got to have in person heart to hearts, and both girls just absolutely loved having Grammy and Pappy here to play with them.
We were so sad to see them go but we’re all already looking forward to our next visit. Our beach vacation in August! Woohoo!!
