My aunt and uncle came all the way from Maryland to see us. My parents have been staying with us since the end of January, and it has been a blast having a very full house. Jim and Holly made it even fuller, in a good way. They came bearing gifts for the boys. One of the gifts they brought was a game called Ticket to Ride. It's such a great game. Get it if you're a board game kind of family. I think they played it five times while they were here, and it's not a short game. We just finished reading a book about the transcontinental railroad, so I personally loved them playing a game that was based off that period of history we had just studied.
Love this pic of the boys enjoying them. Jimmy and Maj, I think your little girl is going to have some pretty fine grandparents, you think? :)
We went to the Botanical Gardens one afternoon before lunch. Things are just about to bloom, so it wasn't the prettiest, but the boys still loved running around, enjoying nature.
The obligatory group photo.
Thanks, Jim and Holly, for making the trip, laughing with us, loving on the boys, and for leaving us with the best present... Season 3 of Downton Abbey :) Let's do it again soon!
