it’s always such a pleasure to be with family, and now there are grandchildren too. They have changed so much in even the few months since my last visit.
The weekend was busy with everyone home, and the usual chores and errands. Saturday, we had lunch at the house of the other grandparents and then dinner with them here. Her brother, sister, and brother in law were also part of the festivities so it was a great time with really good people.
Sunday was an Costco run, and then playtime and get ready for the week.
I’ve been here enough that the area is familiar, but I still notice the contrast. Everything here is so clean and manicured, and there is so much stuff for sale, all beautifully displayed. The weekend also had beautiful weather with warm sunny days and beautiful blue skies which made getting out a pleasure.
I almost forgot, we also went for a walk in the park. The baby was getting fussy so we figured an outing might be fun for her.
Monday we borrowed my daughter’s car and thanked it for the navigation system while we did a big list of errands. The rain was moving in before we were done, and this morning is cold, wet, and gloomy. It’s a good day to stay in and make chicken soup!
So, this is the story of our US trip so far. There is more to come, especially this weekend when my other daughter and family arrive. Meanwhile we will be hanging out in the cozy house and making ourselves useful until they all return from work and school. Hasta luego 🙂
