My parents came out to visit us this last week. It was so wonderful to see them. We have not seen them since March, so this visit was much needed.
I loved every minute of having them in our house, and finally having a house to have them in. While they were here we:
*went shopping at The Handbag store I love, Hobby Lobby, The Container Store, Pottery Barn, and an Antique Store (just to name a few) I am so thankful that my mom shares my same interests when it comes to shopping.
*we ate at Waffle House (a tradition when they visit, gotta have a pecan waffle) YUM!!
*went to the river market in downtown Little Rock, and just browsed around the city.
*spent a long day at church. While they were here, I was sustained and set apart as the new first councilor in the Relief Society. I will be over the Enrichment part. The best part is that is my mom's calling too!! We can share ideas. It was nice to have them here to be a part of that.
As a side note: Jonathan was just called to be the executive secretary in our ward. He will do a wonderful job!!
*my wonderful dad, spent two days (while mom and I were shopping) running the heating and the air conditioning to our bonus room above the garage. He also did some other little tinker projects while he was here. He is such a hard worker, I am amazed at how hard he works!!Thanks DAD!!!
*we also got a babysitter, and went to dinner at a great BBQ restaurant. We enjoyed ribs, chicken, catfish, and the best rolls on the planet. My mom loved the onion rings too!! It was nice to be out and enjoy some time just us!!
*we also played some games at night when the kids went to bed, I taught my mom how to digital scrapbook, and we watched movies.
So much fun, crammed in to six short days!! We can't wait until you come again.
Thanks for the great visit Mom and Dad!! We love you guys!!
As many of you know, Isaac's middle name is Mark after my dad. I have been teasing him that Isaac can give a scowl just like him. What do you think?
He also looks a lot like my dad, so I think that it is fitting that we named him after such a wonderful person. Isaac has a lot to live up to with that name. What a great namesake.
