This weekend was great – Marm and Dad came down to visit before they go on vacation in Peru!
(This snap was taken during their last visit – we are doing the “blind tiger” camera pose! They really love it!)
We mainly hung out and ate – which is just fine with me. I was glad to see them and spend time with all of us together! We did try 2 new restaurants, both that are in “the book”:
Josephine got it for us when we moved here, and it has been a great resource – especially since there are so many restaurants here in H-town! It at least gives us a jumping off point. More snaps from those meals to come.
In prep for their visit, we desperately needed a new vaccuum. So I have become one of those fancy vaccuum owners – I even remember making fun of my sister-in-law for getting one years ago, and now I have joined her ranks. (Does this mean I am officially old and boring?) I really like it – and it is so cute!
I got the littler one, ’cause it was cuter than the larger one and b/c I am gonna have to lug that thing up and down our stairs, so I figured I should get the lighter one so that I am more apt to actually lug it. And it actually does turn on a dime – good stuff.
It really is great being so close to mom and dad. I am loving it. Also am loving seeing Yarbs basically everyday! It is so great! I think in the past I had always taken for granted how important family is. Since I am older and wiser, I now know, and it is so true – family is the most important thing and it is great to know we can always depend on them.
