Part 1 - Indiana Visitors
For the past week we have had Grandma Ellen, Aunt Natalie, Scout, Rigby and Baby Tennyson staying with us. Aunt Megan also came for a few days in the middle!
We really enjoyed spending time with our family and playing, playing, playing.
Joseph was so proud to have his mama and aunts walk him to school one morning.
And Denbigh got her first pig tails while they were here!
The last morning the cousins lined up for a final good-bye.
Jake & Scout are five months apart in age and the best of friends. They will miss each other.
(As a follow up - here is my Facebook Status from this morning: My kids are so hung over from a week of playing with cousins. One is crying because his big brother ate the last of the cereal. (He could have had some if he had eaten his eggs instead of messing around). One is crying because I took the dog outside without her. She also burst into tears when I handed her some milk this morning and threw it at me. One is being awarded Mathematician of the Month this morning at Flag Salute, is ready for school and is quietly reading. So far today he's my favorite. Don't tell the others."
Part Two - Grandma Ellen's birthday
For Grandma's birthday we had brunch at home and then we enjoyed lunch and pedis at La Costa Omni Spa (my favorite!)
It was a gorgeous day and we were able to eat outside with a beautiful view of the golf course.
And then pedis! Scout really enjoyed hanging out with the big girls. She was pretty worn out from skipping her nap and was happy to snuggle against me and watch a movie on the iPad while I got my pedi.
In the evening we surprised her with with close to 70 birthday cards from family and friends and then enjoyed her birthday cake.
