Grandparents in Ohio

My Parents came to visit for almost a week. It was wonderful! Eric and I really enjoyed having them here to hang out, chat with, watch Gwen while we went to the temple, etc. I think a big bonus was the delicious food we ate (since we had guests, I went all out): sushi, Caribbean baked halibut, brats with special sauerkraut, and spicy fish tacos. Mmmmmm... we ate well!
You can see I where I get my 5'4'' genes... :)

At first, Gwen wasn't quite sure what to think of Grandma and Grandpa.
But she quickly realized that they were here just to bring her love, happiness... and

In addition to great trips to Cosi:

playing with water and balls which both happen to be great loves

and the zoo:
Gearing up for a "safari" trip

experimenting with raspberries (and don't ask what I'm doing, because I don't know)

a really cute smile

followed by the most persistent pouty face she could pull off. She didn't smile for about an 1/2 hour.

Gwen had a ton of fun just playing on the living room floor with Grandma and Grandpa.

Don't shoot! I surrender!

In the end, Gwen absolutely adored her Grandparents. She already misses the showers of love and attention.
Thanks for coming, Grandma and Grandpa! See you at Christmas time!
