I had a big day on Saturday, I spent the whole day at a Chess tournament, sort of a mixed bag... 3 losses 2 wins but all really good games! It's not much for pictures, but afterwards I went to Amelia's birthday party at the skate rink.
After trying to visit at the Chess tournament, which is a mix of chaos with kids running around between tournaments, then waiting outside of closed rooms (mine had its window covered with a poster), Grandma and Grandpa just visited for a bit, then went to get some ramen for lunch with Grace and Mom.
For dinner, they made tacos (with homemade tortillas!)
In all, it was a pretty short visit, but we managed some quality time all around. They took off today in an effort to beat the next rainstorm, and I think they did it! Thank you for the visit, the company, the sleepovers and all of the yummy food! It was good to see you. Today we bode them farewell, made a family trip to Ikea (always risky) and tonight got to enjoy a concert to benefit a family at Woodstock. The concert featured Chuck Cheesman, who was super great for all the kids (and got the adults involved too).
Two other artists also helped out, Amanda Spring
and Sallie Ford, she was great!
It has been a great time folks, and I hope you are weathering all of this rain well enough. There are reports of flooding around our California crew, and we hope you are all staying dry!
