We invited Dave's family to come visit for the weekend and they said yes! Sophie was so thrilled to have them come and it was fun to show them our new house since Dave's dad had never seen it, and his mom and Liz and only been there before we had unpacked and settled in. It was a very short trip, but we managed to fit a lot in during just a day and half, hopefully making the drive worth it for them.
Here's what we did: The Howes arrived Friday night and were able to join us for dinner and then say goodnight to the kids. On Saturday we started with Sophie's soccer game, then had lunch at Blue Sky, a puzzle competition at the library in the afternoon, and we finished our day with dinner and fun at the pumpkin farm. On Sunday Dave was speaking in church, so they came to hear his talk before driving back. What a whirlwind of a weekend!
A welcome picture Sophie drew for them. This is grandma and Liz, and then she ran out of room so papa is on the back
Blue Sky was really yummy and priced lower than expected - always a nice surprise. Sophie and I shared a chocolate shake that was amazingly delicious. It's just a short 5 minute walk from our house so I might be tempted to pop back over for sweet treat every now and then.
We bested the other three teams to win the puzzle competition! Our puzzle was actually pretty difficult and it was a close race to finish before the team next to us. Our prize was some candy, a puzzle, and a free bag of books at the library book sale.
We were so glad they could join us at the pumpkin farm!
