Expecting to help me around the house, they [hopefully] got to relax and soak in the city and all its fun and convenience.
We visited fun stores that aren't available in Kansas, the fun downtown area of Clayton, and some beautiful homes. It was great for me to get to explore the city, too!
Clark was a champ, chillin' in the stroller and attracting all sorts of attention. It's all that chubs.
We taught Clark about hills by giving him a little free-fall downhill. No worries. The stroller was stopped shortly after this...to grandma's relief.
Turns out Ransom loves Clark, too. A little bit more than we would like. Between Clark's sounds and our higher-pitched voices when we spoke to Clark, Ransom couldn't stay away and really loves the way he tastes [ahem]. When forced to stay away, he cried along with Clark, even at one point howling to the sound of his cries.
It was so good to see them. It makes me think they don't really live a whole 7 hours away.
After a fun trip to Trader Joe's, Brenda cooked us dinner. It was amazing:
I am so thankful for the visit. It was great to see friends and familiar faces and I know it will be a while before it happens again.
