Busy Bee

It's been a busy house here lately. My mother-in-law and her mom came to visit for a week, and we were going non stop the whole time. They arrived on Wednesday and we did a grocery shop at Costco (always an event, that place is crazy). Thursday, we went to the Strip so they could see where Jake works. That was slow going, because his Gram needs to stop a lot to rest. Truth be told, so do I right now, so that's okay. Friday, we went on Maddy's field trip in the morning and then stayed up late playing games. Saturday afternoon was lunch out and "Legend of the Guardians" at the IMAX theater. Saturday night was Shakespeare in the Park (MacBeth). Sunday we grilled a really nice lunch and then went to Cirque du Soliel: Beatles Love in the evening. AWESOME show. The girls loved it especially, and the Aussies sitting behind us were completely enamored of the fact that Laura fell asleep 3/4 of the way through, mid-clap. Monday, we finally got to relax a bit as they were leaving around 4am Tuesday. We've spent the entire of this week trying to get back into the swing of our routine and waiting for the supplies for a change in Maddy's curriculum. :) Here's hoping that next week is a bit calmer!
