Grandparent party is over

August 11th, 2009

dsc00415The past week has been rather like a vacation for us. Grandma and Pap-pap were in town. Sabrina think Pap-pap hung the moon and that Grandma is the coolest thing since string cheese. Tessa, who in the past wasn’t a fan of anyone who wasn’t a pre-designated bottle getter (read: mommy or daddy), decided that they were pretty cool too.

dsc004112We went swimming almost every day. (I actually got a little sun.) Steve and I got to go out on a date: dinner (Carrabba’s Chicken Bryan and a pomegranate martini thanks for asking) and a movie (Harry Potter). We all went out to dinner together one night (Applebee’s you are on notice – service sucked and food was borderline – you used to be a decent family restaurant choice). We largely ignored our normal chores and errands to enjoy having family in town.

dsc00450The girls are a little glum today realizing that Grandma and Pap-pap are gone. They are once again stuck with me. No afternoon juice box and cookies poolside. No adults who are willing to read books endlessly (mommy’s limit is usually 4 at a time). No one showing up with a new toy or outfit every day. Even the dog is sad to see them go – they are willing to throw the ball for him way more often than I am.

If I had more time and was more creative, I would create a cheesy photo montage with the song “Memories” playing in the background.



You can’t see Pap-pap’s shirt clearly but it has 3 faces on it. One is Pap-pap. One is labeled Peanut (Sabrina). And one is labeled Scoots (Tessa).


We miss you guys! Thanks for the great visit!

    Awww. Glad you all had such a good visit. Wondering if they are perhaps related to my in-laws… many similarities right down to the shirt! Although – my MIL’s has Griff and Pilar on it – not Sabrina and Tessa. 😉

    FYI – The one and only time (years ago) that I went to Applebee’s was in Nashville – absolutely horrible. Have never had the desire to try one again. (I live in Michigan.)
