When the Grandmas Come to Town...

all the rules go out the window. The kids stay up late, they get as many treats as Grandma can sneak to them, and they all have the times of their lives! We all had a great time really. I miss my mom so much and when we are able to get together, it's hard to do much else but have fun! Mom helped me paint my entire master bedroom (this is no small feat!) and she also helped me arrange and hang pictures on my walls. (They'd been bare this whole time!) We bargain shopped and found an awesome huge wall clock and some cool metal stuff. We hung all those, along with several pictures I already had and my house is really starting to come together.
Mom also got to go along with Ashlyn and her class on a field trip to see Cats at our local small town theatre. (It was G rated, don't worry!) She also got to go with Gabe to see the Thomas & Friends show.
One night we met up with Dan & Christine at the Oceanside Pier to eat at Ruby's Diner on the end of the pier. Yum! Good burgers!! Thanks for coming out Mom & Grandma! And thanks for all your help around the house... now move here! ;)

Brian, Me & Gabe on the pier at dusk
Ashlyn, Mom, & I at sunset. We took another pic since
Ashlyn had her book up, but it didn't turn out. :(

The day they went to see the show, the sidewalk was
very crowded so we went back to get a nice picture!

Grandma posed with Ashlyn and Gabe jumped in.

After hitting up the candy store we went to
The Firehouse Grill for lunch. Gabe loves this
restaurant because the kids can go up and
ring the alarm (loud!) and of course, who
doesn't like sitting on a saddle to eat?
