Redmond, WA 2013 - Part 1

When we arrived at my parents house we walked into the house and saw this sweet welcome sign.  I have the kids make welcome signs for my parents when they visit so my mom surprised us with one.  
 We planned this trip and spent 12 days with my parents.  We didn't do much.  We were busy but not busy....if that make sense.  It was perfect.  We didn't plan much so we could just enjoy whatever came up.  We spent most of our time on the front porch and in the yard.  The weather was perfect.  
 The kids played and played.
 Mark brought work and also took some time off to is Mark relaxing.  LOL.  He found a project to work on.  
 Mark was looking forward to getting his 65' beetle up and running again.  We left it behind when we moved because we were towing our trailer then.  We have since sold our trailer and now could tow the beetle back.  It started right up after sitting all winter and spring.  Now we have a second vehicle again.
 Silas had a great time relaxing and enjoying his first time to Washington. 
 My dad had a hip replacement surgery the week we arrived.  He had his surgery on Monday and we drove in Tuesday evening.  He came home around noon on Wednesday.  We were all so excited to see him.  As we drove in Tuesday evening we drove past the hospital he was at and I called him.....we honked and waved as we drove by.  I wanted to pull off the freeway so bad to see him.  It was hard to drive on by.  But thankfully we got to see him the next day.
 Lulu was so happy to serve and help Papa.
 Silas was spoiled and Papa got to enjoy holding him.  It was great!
They even took naps together.  
More to come....
