Fall fun with Grandpa and Grandma Bigler

After my mom flew back with James from LA to Rochester, she stayed with us for over a week. It is always wonderful to have your mom in town. I love that she is so willing to help with the kids, cook, clean, and talk with me while we are together. Now if only she lived a little closer.
One of our favorite days spent together was at Wickham Farms:

A few days later my dad came into town. The boys had so much fun with their papa. 

It was a little rainy, so we decided to make a trip to the museum. My kids never seem to tire of that place.

He read them book after book after book.
And watched Daniel's lacrosse practice

Saturday morning was the Run for Mercy, which is a 5K our church puts on to support  The House of Mercy women's shelter.

Here I am heading towards the finish. I felt so tired that morning, but still enjoyed the run.

I thought the highlight of the morning was the Kid's Fun Run. Daniel had no idea that is was more than 1/4 of a mile and started out in a full sprint.

He kept saying he wanted to quit, but ended up running the whole thing (and at a fast pace).

And he decided minutes before the race to have his entire face painted. It made for some really great post-race photos.

Abby and Daniel are too focused on their medals to smile in this picture. Daniel wanted to wear it to school that Monday, but I was somehow able to convince him to keep it home where it would be 'safe'.

Adam, Daniel, and Isaac.

And since James did not run, he decided to have his very own race with his papa.

The next morning we went all out on breakfast. French Toast made with Brioche bread from Village Bakery in Pittsford and cream, fruit, and sausage.

Thank you mom and dad for coming to visit us and spoiling us while you were here. 
We sure love you.
