My parents flew in from NC on Tuesday! Will & Annelise call them "LaLa & Grandaddo". :-) They are certainly getting the full picture of what our daily life is like! :-D They had 5 minutes after walking in the door to be ready to go with us to football & cheer practice. :-P On Wednesday, I made them go to the gym with me, and Mom took half of my Zumba class while Hersh treadmilled. After hot tubbing & steaming, we ate lunch at Pappasito's (DIVINE!), ran my normal crazy errands (Trader Joe's, Costco, Home Depot), back to our town to pick up the kids from school, and sent JB & Will off to football practice while we went to Target & H-E-B for further provisions (since they saw football & cheer Tues night and will see it again Fri & Sat...and they're not quite used to Houston heat! :-P)
Thursday morning, we went back to the gym: Mom & I did yin yoga ♥ ♥ ♥ ...followed by bubble tea! ;-) Hershel is the newest addict - he loves a mango slurpy (just fresh mango blended with ice; same thing the kids love, too. :-)) We then went to the kids' school to surprise them for lunch!
[I only came to eat with Will twice all last year (before his Eureka science program) and I never ate with Annelise; so this was an extra special treat for everyone!]
What else, so far? Ah, Grandaddo made the kids' latest dream come true: Rainbow Looms :-D "All the rage" these days, :-P sold out at Michael's...but not at Learning Express! ;-) The kids are both weaving as I type... (We'll see what they actually produce... ;-))
One last thing: my mom watched the show Double Divas last night. It's about two ladies who own a lingerie shop & do bra fittings near Atlanta. I saw an episode this spring, just b/c I didn't change the channel after Project Runway...and it absolutely made me grin! :-D I'd never sit down to watch a show about lingerie - it just doesn't sound like my thing at all. But these girls are funny, super crazy Southern (polar opposite of snobby), and throughout their hijinks, they truly help women & are sincerely judgment-free. They are precious. (And if I still lived in Georgia, I would absolutely take a road trip for a fitting! ;-))
So I've done my daughterly duty. Hersh is now addicted to bubble tea drinks & my gym, and my mom to Double Divas. :-P
Wonder what we'll get into next?
