Summer guests: Part I

We’re having summer guests and it’s awesome!! Our families live so far away that we get really excited when it’s time for visitors. There was some great coordination to get Grandpa and Mema out here at the same time the Glendenning Family came through town. Candy, Andrew, Liam and Logan stayed with us for a few days, visiting from Redlands, Ca. They were pretty happy to have some cool weather and a soft bed to sleep in between camping trips.

Candy had a trunk show for her artwork, “Candied Fabrics”. We had a bunch of friends over, some wine and yummy snacks… it was a great time. It was also great fun to hang out with their two darling boys. Max really loved checking out his cousins and seemed pleased to have more “short people” around.

Tommy to Max to city beach with Candy and Logan. Max was still a little nervous of the water, but let Tommy put some on him with his hands. Progress.

Max loves checking out Grandpa and his beard too. He was a little stand off-ish at first, but he’s warmed up quite a bit and has been enjoying being silly with Grandpa. Mema, as always, is a huge help. She made some of our favorites: spaghetti with meatballs and potato salad. (not to be eaten at the same time.) She hops right in to clean up dishes or do laundry. I think I’ll keep her and not let her go home. LOL
