I have wanted to have company come and visit us at our new home. After all, for the next 11 1/2 months we are living right on the ocean. What better time to visit? I was beginning to worry that no one would take me up on my offer, but Tami and Jared finally relented to my constant invitations. They have been here for the last week and we have had a lot of fun together. It was nice to finally meet my nephew (Dallin) and see Madison with her cochlear implant. Matthew loved baby Dallin. He ALWAYS wanting to hold "bebe", unfortunately even when Dallin was asleep. Matthew also seemed in constant battle with Maddie- imagine him biting and her grabbing his hair. When they weren't fighting, they were quite cute together. The only sad part was Peter was working like a dog this week. One of his new hires didn't get her CT license in time and guess who got to pick up the shifts she had scheduled? I'll give you a hint, he worked 16 hours today- 10 originally scheduled for him and finishing off the 6 he couldn't find anyone else to cover- and will probably be doing the same tomorrow. Oh yeah, the older two boys were at cub scout day camp the whole week from 8:30 - 5:00 and I was gone every day from 3:30-5 picking them up, but despite those two things, we still found plenty of time to enjoy each others company.
Here are some highlights of our week with visitors:
Swimming at beach
Covering in sand at the beach
Sitting in the yard looking at beach
Kayaking at beach (this was Jared and Madison's favorite I think. Thanks for letting us borrow it Channing!)
Chili's (remember the keys!)
Settlers of Catan game- Tami kicked our butts, even though they had never played the knights expansion before
Tami went to CVS 30 times I think
Borders & Toys 'R' Us
Date night to see the Dark Knight (at the opening for those young, spry kiddos and Saturday at 7 for the older, more brittle couple)
I was very sad to see them go. But on the flip side, if anyone is planning to come to the Northeast anytime soon . . . We let you stay in our master bedroom with the ocean view. You'll have to ask Tami and Jared, it is incredible!
