Weekend with Grandpa and Grandma

Brett's parents had been wanting to visit for several months and finally had the chance to drive up for a long weekend.  They arrived Friday night around dinner to find 8 very surprised kids!
We stayed up late Friday night visiting in the living room and watching a video of footage taken of Brett's oldest brother when he was a little boy.  It was fun for the kids to see!
Luke got along great with Grandpa and was spoiled most of the weekend!  Brett and I had the chance to get away and enjoy a peaceful, kid free dinner thanks to Grandpa and Grandma offering to stay home and eat pizza with the kids.
The weather was pretty cold, so the kids stayed inside most of the time playing scrabble with Uncle Van who also came to visit overnight, and Uno with Grandpa and Grandma.  It was a relaxing weekend and we pretty much just sat around and talked.
Grandpa, Brett, and the boys

We were blessed to have lived some time in the same town as both my parents, and then Brett's parents.  We realize now that we are living away from our families again, how much we took this time for granted.  We are looking forward to seeing Grandpa and Grandma again in May when we go to Florida!

"The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance."
Proverbs 21:5

Gratitude Journal
For a little sun amidst the rainy winter days we have been experiencing.
For a timely verse brought to my attention when I needed it.
For a few kid free hours and a great meal with Brett.
For the safe travels of my in-laws.
For family!
