A Wonderful Visit with Nana and Papa

Warning: This post contains more pictures than any post ever should. So, if you don't like pictures, just suck it up!

For the past 5 days we have had the pleasure of Jason's parents company. Their visit was packed chock full of fun times! We definitely kept busy while they were here and made lots of memories that we'll cherish forever.

I'm so glad that they were able to come down and see Aidan this month. They last saw him in July and since then, so much has changed! He can sit up on his own, army crawls everywhere, is getting two teeth, eats solids and has started to actually crawl. Babies grow up so quickly!

Aidan had a great time playing with Nana and Papa! He showed them what a little monkey he was and how he gets around by pulling himself all over the place!

Thursday Aidan had a Doctor's appointment in the morning. Later that night we went to P.F. Chang's for dinner. I love Aidan's portable booster/high chair seat. It is extremely convenient and can be taken everywhere. We can pop him in a booth between us or hook him up to a regular chair wherever we go. This way we can avoid using high chairs at restaurants and Aidan can be comfortable and at the same height as everybody else!

On Friday, which was also Papa's birthday, we all went to the Houston Zoo. Aidan loved seeing all of the animals! Afterward we had lunch at one of Papa's favorite restaurants in downtown, The Flying Saucer. Later on that evening we smoked out ribs, I made my famous beer cheese soup served up in sourdough bread bowls and we topped if all off with ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins. Yum!

When I got off of work on Saturday I had everybody meet me at a friend's house so that we could go swimming. She graciously let us have the use of her pool for the afternoon. The water was a little cold, but I don't think Aidan minded at all!

On Saturday night they even babysat for us so that Jason and I could go out on a date. This has definitely become a foreign word to us. We haven't gone out with each other alone in almost 8 months. It was well needed! While we were away Nana and Papa fed, bathed, read to and played with Aidan. He was tuckered out by the end of the night!

Sunday started off with a little relaxation. Later on in the afternoon we decided to check out the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center, which is close to downtown. They had beautiful hiking trails and scenery. There was also a cute little play area with ropes, tunnels and sand for the kiddos. This is a place I will be taking Aidan to again!

This morning Jason had to head back to work, so Aidan and I were on airport drop-off duty. We were sad to see Nana and Papa leave, but are happy that we will see them in 2 1/2 months for a LONG visit over the holidays!

We love you Nana and Papa! :)
