Despite the fact that we live in a faraway land, we have recently been blessed by special visits from both Georgia and Texas. And these visits came in the best form possible... grandparents!
First came Poppi!
He's a captivating storyteller.
And he's not too bad at this feeding thing either!
Yes, it's decided! Bella loves her Poppi!
And next came Nana!
Nana excels at the playground.
And this former history teacher ran circles around the The National History Museum.
She can even throw balls, too!
But perhaps the best memory from Nana's trip was taking Bella on her first ever Merry-Go-Round! After the first three ups and downs, Bella made the executive decision that carousels rock and exclaimed "WEEEeeeeee!!!" for the remainder of the ride. Oh happy day.
Speaking of happy days, one major bonus of having Nana in town was that Mike and I got to enjoy our first vacation alone (since Bella arrived) to a nearby B&B for some much needed R&R. We stayed at the Brampton Inn in Chestertown, MD (Highly recommend it to any of you local couples looking for a weekend getaway!). We also managed to discover the best crab bisque we've ever eaten at the Lemon Leaf Cafe.
But mostly, our days started out like this...
And ended like this...
Hooray for the gift of AWESOME grandparents! We love y'all...especially the two that we missed seeing this time around!!!
