Major Bummer

My parents left this morning to head back to Maine, and boy do we miss them already. The arrived in early September, and we have so enjoyed having them here. It was great to have their support while the boys and I adjusted to having Steve away. All of that aside, my folks are just really great people who we love and enjoy being around. I can't even put into words what it has meant to me, having them be a part of the boys' every-day life. Probably something a lot of people who live near their parents take for granted from time to time, I would imagine. Both my mom and my dad are really wonderful grandparents - - loving, gentle, attentive, but able to keep the boys in line when needed. It was really nice to have their companionship. Many times today already, I've had to stop myself from "popping in" next door, to see what they were up to. So, while it is going to take us a few days to adjust to not having them here, we are also going to look forward to their next visit. We miss you, Nana and Papa!

Aw, so sad to see them go :( I love the group-hug pics though! You guys certainly do have a lot of snow out there too……Hope they got back east safely, & I hope you get to see them soon again too!

The photo of Camden leaning his head up against your dad makes tears come to my eyes. It must have been a sad goodbye - I know what wonderful grandparents they are. When will they be coming out again?
