The G-Ma's Visit

A few peeks at our visit with my Mom...AKA The G-Ma & GG-Ma. 
It was a very busy, very happy, very fun week!!!
 
This is how I found my Mom when I arrived home from work last Wednesday. 
Straight from the airport to the baby!

Relaxing with her granddaughters...had to snap this one!
It made me laugh when I saw all these feet up on the table!!

A trip to the Cheesecake Factory...it was the first time Bill ate there. 
It was also the first time for the butterfly.

Katie's salad.

GG-Ma and the big sister and the little sister.
 
My Mom had to give up Lulu for a little while because her Nana from England arrived on Friday. 
Between the two of them I seldom got to touch Lulu!  : )

Lots of fun family fellowship!!

Caleb's first time in the big pool!

A little bit of down time for the kiddos.  Chloe's Closet was their show of choice.

We had pizza and a yummy homemade salad bar for dinner on Saturday.
Check out these jumbo radishes!!!

We took lots of family photos. Poor Penelope...look at all those big kids taking up
all the space in the playhouse

Yummy French Toast for Sunday breakfast.

These three LOVE the pool...they're just waiting for the "lifeguards" to arrive.
One of the "pool rules" is at least one adult in the pool AND one adult out of the pool
whenever the kiddos want to swim.

Here's the one IN the pool!

Caleb LOVES the pool!

Here he is pulling the pool train!

Charlotte's Nana was kind enough to take a photo of the whole group.

Charlotte and Penelope baked Brownies with Aunt Mandy.

We played a bit of Scrabble....we had two games going on at once.

While the brownies were baking, Mandy joined the game at this end of the table.

My Mom left for home yesterday. Katie brought Lulu over for some last minute hugs.

She seems to like her great grandma...looks like they're having a good conversation.

My Mom had to let Bill hold the baby while she had her Crab Cake lunch.

But she ended the visit just as it began...snuggling with Lulu!

 
We all had a great visit...and we're already looking forward
to the next one!  Love you Mom!!!
