visit from parents!

So, my parents came to visit. They had an intense week of grandparenting. At first, Mary wasn’t too sure about them.

This is Dad, trying to feed Mary plums:

He missed, on occasion.

Grandma Cal took a thousand pictures of Mary. She has a new digital camera and can’t be stopped.

She even got a picture of all three of us, which we have none of because I’m always taking the picture.

On Saturday–no, Sunday–we went to Great Falls. We got caught in traffic on the way there, and then the line to get into the park was SO LONG. It was absurd. It was nice once we got there, though.

Here is Mary, ready to hike.

And here is a picture of Mary and me enjoying the scenery:

Mary helped read the map:

Grandma Cal and Grandpa Mike argued over how close to the edge to sit for their photo:

Mary and Grandpa posed in their overalls:

Mary sang along to “Whip It”:

Anyway, we had a nice week. Conor and I received a grill (for our birthday present) and requisite accessories (skewers!). Dad fixed our pipe that carries water to the outdoor spigot, so now I can use my garden hose (yay!). We went to campus on Wednesday; I had a meeting, so Mom and Dad took Mary for a walk to see the bronze turtle. Apparently, Mary chatted with all passers-by. (I find this plausible.)

Mom and Dad left this morning. Mary already is waiting for the next person who’s going to spoil her properly. Luckily we’ll be visiting them in a month or so for Cherie and Jenny’s shower!
