I am so glad Nate's mom and my dad were able to make trips up here. Both had relatively good weather but polar opposites. For Bonnie, we had low 60s, periodic drizzle and some gorgeous spring flowers. For my dad only a week later, we had high 80's, rhododendrons and sunshine. Vivi was thrilled to have such enthusiastic and amenable playmates, and I'm sure it was a nice change for her to hear "Sure!" to her request to play instead of my frazzled "Not right now, honey." Enjoy some slideshows of both trips below. Now we've got my mom in town, and we're getting ready to go on our big vacation to Dominican Republic without the kids. More to come on that. Yipee!!
