My mom and dad have been visiting for the past week...which is why I haven't posted lately. I only see my parents once a year ( two if I am really lucky). They live on the other side of the country, so I try to get in the best visit possible. With the time difference it takes them a few days just to adjust.
Living far away from family is hard, especially when you have a new baby.This was the first time my mom got to meet Simone, and she is already 5 months old! The next time...she will be walking and maybe even talking.
Every time my parents come to visit I have a list of things that I would like done. My dad is super handy, and loves helping me. He is not the kinda guy to just sit around...he loves to tinker. I did two hardware store runs. One with my mom who is the designer and color picker. One with my dad who is the handyman and measurement guy.
This trip we finished the mudroom! My dad finished the wainscoting and trim, my mom and I did the painting and she also sewed up these great cushions for my bench. We also made the hooks on the wall with a piece of wood we found at the beach!!
I wish we lived closer, but we make it special by just hanging out and doing things together. It will be hard to say good bye tomorrow evening. But I hope to see them again real soon. Luv ya M &D.
