my parent's just left last night and we are all feeling a little blue around here. i always have such a hard time when they leave. this visit was especially fun because of the stage that sam is in right now. that little boy has grandma and grandpa wrapped around his chubby little finger.
he was loving playing games with grandpa and grandpa and wanted to be held/crawl all over them 24/7.
we had so much fun having them around all week.
and i got to sleep in every. single day.
i woke up at eight and sam was fed, bathed and ready for the day all before i was awake.
it was glorious.
while my parents were here were made a visit to the idaho falls zoo (which was surprisingly bigger than i thought it would be). ben got this day off so it was especially nice having my mom and dad AND ben all to ourselves for the day.
after the zoo we headed to five guys and picked up some cupcakes from the cocoa bean to take home (naturally).
we also took mom and dad into rexburg for some snow cones and to take sam to the park but of course sam conked out after snow cones so we had to scratch the park. but the weather was perfect so we just took our time and enjoyed out snow cones outside for a while.
(this picture seriously kills me. he was CLEARLY loving this.)
a while back i inherited my mom's old sewing machine when she upgraded to a new one. i have been wanting to learn how to sew for a while now but just haven't found the time. while she was here we took my sewing machine into a sewing store and my mom had them give it a tune up so she could start teaching me how to sew. she spent so much of her time here teaching me how to sew and i am SO grateful. seriously though, i think my mind was in sewing overdrive. the first night they were here i seriously could not sleep because i was having dreams about bobbins and pressure feet. she was so patient with my while i was learning and we spent lots of time perfecting the perfect bow tie pattern. i now have our guest bedroom set up as a sewing room. i can't wait:)
while they were here we also ate lots of yummy food, enjoyed many trips to target, and loved going into idaho falls with sammy boy to visit dad in his new office.
i love my parent's more than anything and sam loves them even more than that. i hate that he doesn't have anyone to entertain him in the backseat now:(
we had so much fun with them and can't wait till the whole family is back in september for sam's first birthday!
i'm already planning his party.
