Last week

Between New Year's and this past weekend, then, Nathan's parents came to visit and we had a lovely time together. Highlights...

  • Each boy planned an individual outing with grandparents...Micah took them to paint some pottery, Asher took them to brunch and Noah took them to dinner.
  • We all went together to see Beauty and the Beast at the Candlelight Dinner Playhouse (where they serve dinner ahead of time and dessert during the intermission)...which was awesome! Beyond the great show itself, the highlight of the show for the boys and me was when one of the "silly girls" who fawns over Gaston actually came into the crowd and hugged Noah! Plus, I got to clink mugs with one of the other silly girls (who was also our server for the night). 
  • Nathan and I enjoyed a delicious dinner out with John & Nancy, followed by some shopping and gelato.
  • Many, many games were played. :)
  • We took a lovely walk around the neighborhood to enjoy some sunshine.
  • And when the sunshine went away, we headed back to the pottery place altogether to paint some bowls for their Empty Bowls project (where people volunteer to paint bowls for the Food Bank)...

It was such a fun time and a great opportunity to practice with painting some pottery. The boys and I will probably go back and paint something for ourselves at some point. :) (If you're local, you should definitely go...lots of fun! It's called Flutterby.)

And then on Saturday, Nathan had to take John & Nancy back to the airport...

(I made them take a picture, as I realized we hadn't gotten one with Nathan in it during their visit.)

And then everyone had to get back to normal... ;)
