grandy came to visit!!

we just dropped my mom (grandy) off at the airport and it was so sad to say goodbye. she came to visit us here in iowa for the past few days and we had such a fun time! scott was thrilled to have her around to play with. and james and i loved visiting with her. it was amazing to have grandy time with no work, school, phone calls, newsletter writing, program making... to get in the way!!
it was a really relaxed and nice time for all of us (well, james was studying most the time) but the rest of us were on vacation. naturally, scott and i took grandy to our local beach. okay, so its just a tiny fishing lake, but it has sand and water so its a beach!
mom took me shopping and got me this new dress and soes and the jewlrey i
m wearing! she got me something else too, but tjat's our little secret.

grandy slept on an air mattress in our family room (what a trooper!) and scotty loved snuggling with her in the morning.
and of course bath time is one of scott and grandy's favorite activities together. grandy has a way of taking bathtime to a new and exciting level.
and last, but not least, a very glamerous picture of mom and i in our pajamas while making pancakes!
thanks for coming grandy! we hope you come back soon!

You guys have had more visitors in a few months than we did like the first two years in Ohio! Isn't it the best when you get visitors!? I hope all is going well and that little Scotty boy is such a cutie!

I could have my mom stay forever (I don't know if Ryan could say the same). Momma time is the best time. It's sad when they have to go home. I hope things are going well in Ohio. We need to chat!

Wow, I love making memories with the Palmers -- time with them is truly a Broadway hit!! Now when I view their cute family pictures, I not only see it but I can smell it, hear it, feel it, and even touch it with the sweet memories of my mind. I had a wonderful time playing, burping, and cuddling with Scotty; philosophizing with James on Freudian theories and scrabble words; and walking, talking, shopping, eating, feeding, laughing, coaching, and blogging with Natalie. What a wonderful way to spend the last days of summer!!

What are you talking about...I love your hair. You are such a cute fun mommy. You look so good. I just think there is one problem with granny going to visit you....you won't feel the need to come to Utah to visit her. Make sure it happens soon.

Mimi said...

Yeah grandy! We can't wait until she comes to visit us too. And Scott looks so big and like he has a personality. Are you guys going out to UT after Christmas? I'm hoping....
