Granny Visits!

My Mum came to visit on Friday, she'll be here for a week. It's very exciting! The excitement began when I checked her flight status an hour before she was due to arrive (planning to then clean the bathroom and vacuum before leaving to pick her up) only to find that she'd already landed! Panic! Then the best part was, after she got here, she cleaned the bathroom for me. I wish she was staying for a month! ;-)

Fiona talks with her regularly on Skype, so she already had an idea of who she was. In the car on the way to the airport all I heard was "Granny, Granny, Granny... Train... Granny', then when we met her, Fiona was very happy. Fiona has been favouring her ever since, going straight to her when she needs help with something and demanding that she follow her around and sit in her house.

On Saturday we all ventured out for lunch. We rarely take Fiona to places where you have to wait for your food because her attention span is a little short, but she did very well and mostly sat on her seat and ate and coloured.

After that we had to have some exercise so we took a really long walk around where we live. Adele hasn't recently decided that she likes the stroller so I carried her in the Moby. It was a workout!

After that we were too tired to do much else!

Today is Mother's day in Britain, so to celebrate Mum and I are going to have lunch and Ben's going to hang out with the girls. Hopefully my next post won't be telling of the disaster that results from that experience :-)

Hi Louise! What did you do on your ladies day out? I remember loving crayons and coloring place mats as a kid, especially when they posted them on the wall afterwards! How special. :)
