The best thing about having family come visit from California: Tree-fresh avocados from Great-Grandma’s backyard. Yep, Aunt J. smuggled these to me in her suitcase.
Okay, okay. The best part is always spending time with family. But the avocados are yummy, too!
I have to say, the Californians weren’t too impressed with the clear-and-sunny-yet-frigid weather we’re having. Looking outside through the window the sun is deceptively promising, but when you step outdoors you realize it’s still the middle of winter. Even still, we had a fun weekend together.
Here are Abuelita and Aunt J. posing with the kids. (Please pretend you don’t notice that my pictures are hanging crooked.)
Hubby and the girls took Aunt J. sledding on Sunday afternoon while the less adventurous stayed at home. It was with sad faces that the kids said good-bye to Abuelita and Aunt J. at the airport yesterday. Thanks for visiting, we’ll see you again soon!
