a couple weeks ago my parents braved the flooding detours and headed our way for a much needed visit. it had officially been over 6 months since we’d seen them. it’s definitely fun to have the biggers to get super excited with me as we anticipate their coming two or three times a year. although i didn’t have a thousand things planned this time around we still seemed to be on the go quite a bit. i was super thankful for my mom’s help in some of my sewing projects i’d been stalled out on. we also made our obligatory trip to a flower nursery. mom and i spent a couple of hours at the zoo with the kids which is always fun. we also did a first and got a baby sitter while they were here so just brad, myself, mom, and dad could go out to dinner together. why we hadn’t done this on any previous trips is beyond me because it was a lot of fun to get out with just them.
