(We haven't met her yet, because S still has a lingering cough and wants to be sure he's completely well. She's not even a week old yet, so we certainly don't want to expose her or the family to anything! Even if we are all obsessively washing our hands, thanks to all the swine flu news....)
They spent today with us, then will head over the hill to visit with other family before going up to spend some time with the new baby and family. BJ came home early from preschool this morning to make the most of what little time we would have together. We hung out at the house, played in the backyard, visited the pet store (where we purchased a much-needed collar for the escape artist cat!) and had dinner at Sweet Tomatoes.
Plus we got some really cute pictures of everybody together -- bonus! This one is the best of the bunch, I think:
It's a minor miracle to get everybody looking at the camera and smiling! But definitely worth the effort. BB especially loves having the pictures of everybody. When she learned that they would be here to visit, she immediately wanted to carry around the picture we took from their last visit, which was two years old. It will be very nice to have something more recent! We're very glad we got to spend some time together, however short.
