Last weekend my dad and my nephew visited us and we had a great time. My husband and I love visitors (so much that we constantly invite random strange people into our home). OK, just kidding. We are not that bad but we do like it when people visit (especially family). Growing up, my dad and I weren't very close and our conversations have always been very brief. I think that was because we didn't know what to say to each other. Anyway, last weekend was different. We all (hubby, my nephew, dad and I) were kind of locked inside due to bad weather. My husband was busy with work stuff for part of the time and my nephew was exploring the house, playing with the cat and doing other random things. My dad and I talked for a looooong time about eeeeverything and it was great. Hubby even commented about how glad he was that my dad and I got to really chat. Another highlight of the weekend was when my dad cooked curry chicken for us for dinner. It was so good (especially with the dumplin' and banana to compliment it).
This past weekend (labor day weekend) my husband's parents came to visit us. They drove 11 hours from Florida. (I know we felt really special). His parents are awesome. They are hilarious and very down to earth people. We did so much with them in so little time. Because they are in such great shape we took them hiking (with the dogs too) and I think they liked it. They had to do some climbing on rocks and hopping over water but they were troopers and didn't complain. Every time I visit with my husband's family, I learn so much more about him and it helps me understand him better. His mom really adores him (his dad too, but you know how moms are). I enjoyed hearing about some of the stories from his childhood and hearing them made me love and value him even more.
Overall, I think the past 2 weekends have been very refreshing for both of us (hubby and I). I hope you have had a great weekend too :)
