Grandma & Grandpa come for a visit!!!

We had a very nice visit from Grandma and Grandpa (Brandon's parents). We haven't seen Grandpa for over 2 years so it was nice for him to come see the kids again, and meet Lily for the first time. Needless to say Lily wasn't too sure about him for the first couple days but slowly warmed up. By the last day she would touch his hand but sill wasn't thrilled about him holding her. She is a total Ma-ma's girl and doesn't really like anyone else holding her for that matter. Though she did let Grandma hold her and would do her bum-backing up thing to sit on her lap and was very content with her. She isn't a big fan of other men I guess I should say.

Corbin needed some time to warm up as well. He isn't a big people person (like his dad), at least not yet. Rowen had no problems, not surprisingly. He probably remembers them a bit more. We do video chats which helps I'm sure. And Rowen loves to chat anyone's ear off.

Lily isn't too pleased that I'm taking a picture with her boobies exposed, ha ha.
Grandma and Grandpa brought some toys for the kids. Lily got a new book.
The boys (and Lily) got some new play veggies and trucks.

And of course the boys are still into puzzles. They had fun showing them how good they are at them.

We took a trip into the the city to go to the Science and Industry Museum. We were thinking the aquarium but discovered there were train and farm exhibits, so we had to go there.

I'm sure Grandma has some more, if not better pictures, so once I get them I will post some of those as well.

Brandon and I were lucky to have them offer to watch the kids so we could have a kid-free night! We stayed at a nice hotel in the city and were sure to get a room with a 2 person jacuzzi. We hung out in that most of the night and morning. We stopped for lunch on the way in at the Cheesecake Factory and I found my new favorite drink...a Tropical Martini, Deeelish.

We hope that it isn't another year before seeing Grandma and 2 years before seeing Grandpa again. It is nice for the kids to spend time with them but it is also hard since we live so far away. So where are the teleporters already???
