Busy, busy, busy

Well after a week of grandma and grandpa, we got them safely on the plane back home yesterday and are trying to settle back down to "normal" (whatever the heck that is!!). We had a fabulous time while they visited, including outings to storytime (Thursday), the children's museum (Friday), and the park (Monday, the only morning it wasn't raining).

We drove to the "old house" on Saturday morning, since commencement wasn't until 3:00 pm. It was a loooong ceremony with over 150 Ph.D.s and over 600 Master's. Since I was squished in with the other graduates on the floor, I didn't see first hand, but rumor has it that Bug did a great job sitting through it on grandma's lap (with only the occasional whispered bribe). Bean and Kitty Daddy ended up doing laps around the arena to keep her amused.

Sunday was a *fancy* mother's day breakfast at Burger King, before heading back home. Okay, it was actually a quick breakfast so we didn't have to brave the crowds elsewhere. The service was pretty bad, but we retaliated by Bean smearing applesauce EVERYWHERE. She hasn't quite mastered the whole spoon concept. Or, more accurately, she is great with a spoon, it's the silly gravity thing that messes things up.

I promise there will be pictures soonish...though updates will be at the whim of the cable company, as our cable modem has become completely flaky again. *grumble, grumble, grumble*

Grandma and Grandpa are attempting to get back to "normal" too—and we're not sure what that is either! In our case, it includes about five loads of wash. How can two people wear so much clothing during one week? Oh, yeah, there's that eating and playing with grandchildren thing! We had a grand time, though, and feel that we pulled off some serious grandparenting time with Bug and Bean.
