Grandpa and Grandma

My parents are  officially done with their first “season” in Florida.  They spent the last three months there and really enjoyed themselves. We just so happen to be at about the halfway point between Naples and Kenosha, so stopping at our house on the way is especially ideal.  In fact, my Aunt Sally and Uncle Brad and one of my cousins, Anne, made the stop on their way through, too.  We were thrilled to get to host them all, albeit briefly.  My parents stayed with us for a few days and have now started the long drive back home.  Here are some pictures from their time with us.  Two major highlights: Ethan successfully rode his bike and our neighbors are taking down a bunch of trees in their backyard (Bobcat, dump truck, logging truck…all so close!!).

Here’s E preparing his welcome sign:

Doing yardwork (Ethan coaxed Grandpa into doing his “glove project” with him):

Anne, Brad and Sal (our short, but sweet visit with extended family).  When Ethan saw Uncle Brad sleeping on the couch Saturday morning, he ran back upstairs to put on his Packers jersey. =)
