A Visit From Mom and Dad C

We had such a fun time when Devins parents made their way up California to see us. After their mission to Guatemala ended two weeks ago, they have made a trip around the world to see all their siblings and kids. We were the second to last stop and the visit could not have been better. Braden loved being with grandma and grandpa and wouldnt stop giving them a show. He was so good and didnt throw a tantrum the entire 48 hours until we were on our way to the airport. On Friday night when they arrived we took them to one of our fave restaurants, Lucilles Smokehouse. We dont go very often because it is expensive, but whenever we have a special occasion we try to go. We all ate too much and were hardly even hungry for breakfast on Saturday morning. Friday night after dinner, we just visited and had a good time together. Saturday, we made breakfast and then took off on our adventure. We took a drive to Devins office and then up to the temple where we walked around. We then took them to see the houses our offers are pending on, one in Lincoln and one in Rocklin. Then we took them to another favorite eatery, Plutos. Our salads were to die for and I think Mom and I could eat there every day. After that the boys did some shopping for new shoes for Dad, and Mom and I took off to the grocery store to get fixins for bbq chix pizza YUM!!! Saturday night Devin and Dad browsed the internet for property dreaming of a way to get Mom and Dad C to relocate to sunny California. The weather the entire weekend was perfect for everyone even though Mom C was still cold. Devin kept saying that all of the great things that happened were a sign from heaven that they should move here. :) Sunday before church we took a drive and enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the hills in another effort to get them to fall in love with Nor Cal. Braden was super cuddly with Grandpa and I think that may have been the icing on the cake. Now we just have to get the rest of the fam here and they will be done for. We had so much fun with them and cant wait to visit with them again. :)
