Our First Visitors!!!

We were so thrilled...Grandma and Grandpa came to visit and we were all over-the-top about it! 

They arrived while kiddos were at school so I had them to myself for a while.  This was nice for me...they are so special to me and I miss them so much.  I showed them our new house and the gardens.  They both liked the house and Mom commented a couple times that the house just feels comfortable.  That makes me feel really good.  We then went to Baba's house so they could visit with her.  Baba's house is so lovely and we had a great time visiting with her.  Her apple cake was just the icing on the cake...Thanks Carolyn!

We then headed to school to get the kiddos...this was the reaction!
It was a really HAPPY moment! 

We got K from her school and headed out to the beach.  Grandma grew up growing to the beach on the Pacific Ocean and had never set foot in the Gulf...I think she felt a little at home when we arrived. 

The shell hunting began!!!

We had a wonderful time!  It was just happiness and joy the entire short-but-sweet visit.  They couldn't stay long as the house in WY still needs some attention before the holidays but we can't wait for them to come back and stay awhile.  They even talked about staying a long while over the cold WY winters...that would be amazing!

This helped remind me how much family means to me.  They have always been wonderful parents and I am so thankful we got to introduce them to our new home.

I saw a saying this morning that said "Friends are the Flowers in a lovely garden"...if that's true then family must be the absolutely need their nutrients they provide in order to live a healthy, happy life. 

I can't wait for the next visit...I love you Mom and Dad!
