My mom and dad came down last weekend for almost 4 whole days, which for them is a long visit. Among other treats, we were able to visit Bella at her school for lunch twice. Not having a car, I have not been able to do this so far this year so we surprised her for the two school days they were in town for. Se was appropriately surprised and delighted to find not just one, but 4 unexpected visitors in her cafeteria!
I hate this goofy 'smile' of hers she has concocted.
She has lunch at 10:40(!) and my parents didn't get into town until the middle of the night so I had to force my dad out of the house before he even had a chance to shave, which is very uncharacteristic for him.

Grandpa's favorite girls. ( I like to think so anyway.)

I've said this before, but I love that mom and dad live close enough to visit often, and I love that they are willing to make the drive a few times a year. We're already lobbying to have them come for Thanksgiving.
