My family visited last week, and it was soooo good to see them. There were lots of hugs and kisses from grandma, and playing and talking and also some traveling. When they first got here, I had a seven layer bean dip and chips ready for them, along with some potato salad and lemonade. The little ones know me as cookie grandma, as I'm always baking cookies for them when I see them.
I bought two pink lawn chairs for the grandgirls, and placed two BIG teddy bears on them to greet them when they pulled up. These were my kids' bears when they were little, and they are very special to them.
I found goodies here and there to fill their cabinet so they would have something to play with.
Remember the glass jar I bought at the home store? I filled it with peanut M&M's, Brian's favorite candy.
The first day, we traveled to see some beautiful Waterfalls. These Falls are amazing, and people come from all over to see them. We talked with families that were traveling from Huntington Beach and other states like Florida and Texas. Here are some pictures of the Falls.

Little feet going up the steep walkway (Francesca). It's quite a hike to get to the top of the Falls.
There is a cool little shop there that we went to and bought some water and snacks. They sell t-shirts and cups and other items. Here is Mia outside the shop standing next to a huge tree, which looked very much like a Christmas tree.
We walked so much, she was pooped out at the end of the trip.
It was such a fun day, and I was so glad to see my family again. I'll show you a little more of their visit next time.
