This past week was fantastic! Last Friday my niece and nephew from Washington came to stay with us for 5 days. They aren't here very often and haven't ever come by themselves so I wanted to be sure that they had a great time. I filled those 5 days to the BRIM with activity.
When they were getting ready to arrive I asked them to send me a list of 4 things that they wanted to do while they were here. They could each pick two, they could decide on 4 together...however they wanted to do it. I got an email back with two things:
1. John's Incredible Pizza
2. Have dinner with Grandpa
In that order. It made me both laugh and cry.
I made sure we did both items on top of a whole bunch of other stuff. We had a party for Leyton (more on that later),
we went to Old Sac and the Railroad Museum,
we went to Pier 39, Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, Lombard Street and The Golden Gate Bridge.
Leyton had an absolutely blast with them while they were here. On the morning he woke up and realized they were at the house he immediately hugged Hayden and wouldn't stop touching him and looking at him. Now that they are gone, all he can talk about is where are Hayden and Andrea. I absolutely love my family and it's time like these when I realize it is not fun having to be so far apart.
Thanks for the good times, it was a blast having you both here and I can't wait till you come back!
