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.|
|Andrew saying goodbye to his papa and grandma right before they left for the airport.|
Thank you mom and dad for coming to visit us and spoiling us while you were here.
We sure love you.
