…or having your Grandpa around to run by your side while you ride your bike to the bus stop and on a Saturday when you decide to wear your pj’s all day:
Nothing like bringing your mom along to pack and drive for the organization you volunteer for each month…
And having them both meet your children at school for lunch:
They got to watch Elle and Grace play tennis:
Have some fun discussions around the dinner table:
I loved that my Dad made his famous popcorn with Claire and her friends one night:
(He likes loads of butter on it which the girls thought was quite exceptionally delicious.)
I loved having my mom share my passion for painting Easter eggs:
And we played a little tennis and got together with our great family friends.
I think this is our new tradition with these guys since it seems to be the same drill each time.
Love catching up with them!
We got to go get sushi with some of our sweet friends who recently moved close-by:
It was “Eddie the Eagle,” has anyone out there seen that?
We LOVED it.
There was one part I thought they definitely should have left out, but other than that I would totally recommend this movie for a family movie.
I love when a movie can have everyone on the edge of their seats and create tangible emotion.
We went to the Easter pageant:
…and last but not least, celebrated Easter together (all about that back HERE).
A couple of the things not pictured that I want to remember: 1) a grand bike ride my Dad and I took while discussing the world, 2) a nice conversation sitting with both my parents basking in the sun by the pool, 3) my children adoring every second with my parents and thinking up any new way they could get them one-on-one.
Yep, I know I’m biased but I think I must have the best parents on the whole planet (right up there with Dave’s:)
Love this funny picture Claire took from the car when I was dropping them off at the airport.
