Grandma Karen Comes To Town

We were lucky enough to have Grandma Karen (my mom) come to visit us for a week. Her work schedule is pretty busy, so it was amazing that she managed to get here for Stellan's birthday. In addition to celebrating the big 3, we also took her to the beach, went to Jaxson's for ice cream, spent a morning at Monkey Joe's (a warehouse full of inflatable wonder), went swimming, made her babysit while we watched some World Cup to celebrate our anniversary, and enjoyed some hands-free time while Grandma enjoyed holding Rachelle.
In fact, she was so good at holding sleepy Rachelle that she adopted Rachelle's way of life. Within minutes of cuddling up with her anywhere in the house, they would both be fast asleep. I said, "I'm sure your boss won't mind if keep this schedule up when you go back home. Just let her know you're going to nap from 10 to 1, and 2 to 5, but that you promise to wake up if you get hungry or poop your pants."
Thanks for coming, Grandma - we miss you already.
