Grandparents Rock!

My parents are leaving bright and early tomorrow morning.  We got a ton of work done around my house and I am so grateful to them for using their vacation time to come help us poor souls do things like, oh, replace toilets and carpet, cut baseboards and keep up with the never ending laundry.  Of course, it wasn't all hard work and we had lots of fun shopping, eating and playing together, too.

Tonight I did an impromptu photo shoot with the girls and Mamah and Grandpa in our front yard.  The sun was already setting when we decided, so I was losing light fast, but I got some good ones that I can't wait to frame.  Since I never did get fall photos this year.  Sigh.

Have a wonderful weekend!  I'd like to say I will, but my parents will be gone, so I'll probably be crying.
