Ian, Emma, and Beth came to visit from Utah. Ian and Emma got in later Saturday night, and Beth came in on Sunday morning. It was a blurry, busy Father's Day. We ate breakfast, went to church in my parents ward, Daddy opened his presents, all of my dad's side of the family came over for a get together, and then they had Dillon's eagle scout court of honor at my parent's house. Burke and I unfortunately had to miss that so we could get back home for work on Monday morning. The weekend was lovely, but very busy.
My family's plan for the week was to go to the beach for a few days, to the beach in southern NC. However, through much persuading, they were convinced to come vacation by us. I couldn't get out of work to go with them, but since they were close we are able to hang out in the evenings. And it was priceless.
The house they stayed in was on the bay, right down the street from us. They were able to go to nicer beaches during the day, but play with us at night.
Emma loves the beach. The sand, the water, the shells, the crabs... she loves it. But she did not want to smile for a picture!
Bright colored pedicures for Mom's birthday!
Ian got a much-needed vacation from his 80+ hour work weeks.
We enjoyed a little bit of much-needed sister time! So sad to live so far apart.
...and can provide hours of entertainment for a 4-year-old!
Thanks, family, for coming to Virginia instead! Being able to join in on your vacation a little felt just a bit like a vacation for me.
