Dad & M.E. Visit

We were happy to have Dad and Mary Ellen (aka Gramps and Grandma-Me) come out for a visit!  It was Caden's first time meeting these grandparents, other than in utero (he just didn't make it in time for their last visit). Caden warmed to Gramps and Grandma-Me right away, giving them snuggly hugs upon their arrival.   
Their visit was fairly short since they had to squeeze it in between work schedules.  We are so grateful they took the time to make it happen.  Thanks for coming out to see us!!

Isaac LOVES hotels--he thinks they are very cool--so he was pretty stoked to spend some time hanging out in Gramps' and Grandma Me's hotel room.  He even got to spend the night at the hotel, twice.  He is blessed with very patient and tolerant grandparents.

Isaac showed Gramps and Gramdma-Me around the park . . .

 and showed off his mad biking skills.

We enjoyed Sandy Beach for a bit.

Dad's arms are often full
 On their last night here, we wrapped up the visit with a nice dinner at Lakeside Lodge.

 I hope this is not indicative of how most family pictures will (mom) of four cooperating.

That's a little better.
Dad and M.E. made the two-day trek in Dad's fancy, new, "retirement" Corvette, and they say they weren't cramped at all.  It's yet to be known if they'll do it again.  :)  It was fun that they brought it out since Matt and I got to try driving it.  I've never driven such a high-performance vehicle.  I enjoyed the ride for sure, but Dad informed me that I didn't drive it quite as aggressively as my husband.  I think the exact words were that I didn't "tickle it."  Maybe next time...
