It has been great to have my parents with us this week. My children have loved all of the attention and to be on vacation with them. It worked out perfect that we finished up school a couple of days before they arrived. Hello Summer!
I was hoping Silas and Callie would "warm up" to them quickly. Sometimes they can be a little shy around people they don't know very well. Well, I shouldn't have worried. Within minutes Callie was my Dad's Buddy. And Silas hasn't stopped talking in since Saturday!
I haven't been able to quite be the hostess I would like to be with my parents this time. I've slept quite a bit and have had to take it easy. But, as Patrick put it this morning, the Lord knew that our children needed this time with their Grandparents and worked out the timing perfectly. My parents are so understanding and of course a little worried about me, they have taken care of everything!
Patrick has loved visiting with my Dad. These two have so much in common and love to be together.
And my Dad is loving going to the bakery everyday for some french bread!
We've gone on some walks in our neighborhood. The beach is just around the corner, you know! :o)
My Elisabeth is not real crazy about the beach. Neither is my Dad. My Mom said they started hiking along the coast next to the beach they were enjoying. They loved the hike and climbed over rocks. What a great memory for the two of them! Can you spot them?
Such a great time with my parents. I love you both!
