Visit from Grammy and Grandpa Doc

My parents surprised me with a visit in the end of January. I was very excited, because this was the first time my mom would see my house. We had a wonderful time, and the visit was filled with my favorite activity: shopping! I wish I had taken more pictures, but sometimes it is nice to just enjoy the time together and not making everything a major event. My mom bought me a sewing machine for Christmas and she spent some time teaching me some tips (like how to thread the machine!) and my lack of knowledge was so hilarious that even Joel had to get in on the action. He gave some pattern-reading tips.
My parents brought my two youngest brothers, Luke and Mark. Carson was so happy to have some boys to play with! Grammy bought the boys all matching Star Wars Lego shirts and they were so cute matching.

Luke will probably want to karate chop me when he sees this photo! No time with Grammy would be complete without a trip to the Mouse House (Chuck E. Cheese's). Everyone loves it.
Jocelyn and Grammy played Grammy's favorite game: air hockey.

Dad and the boys enjoyed some video game racing time.

Josie and Grammy playing Grammy's other favorite game: Skee Ball. Grammy is pretty good!

Taking grown men to Chuck E. Cheese is hilarious. It is hard to know who has more fun: the men or the kids. My dad looked pretty goofy playing this 3D game.
Never to young to start with the video games! Carson was piloting some sort of aircraft.

Jocelyn's favorite game was this wave rider game. It made you feel like you were in the ocean, or on a roller coaster, etc. She made everyone ride it with her and probably went on it ten times.
Me and my dad.

The boys chose glow in the dark teeth as their prize. Here they are making scary "werewolf" faces, according to Carson.

He loved his teeth so much he went to sleep with them in his mouth on the way home! It was kind of hilarious.
Grammy is always so good to read to the kids. She brought special books for each of them. Carson's was about knights and dragons, and he loves it. It was too short of a visit, but I won't complain because I am just glad we got to spend time together. Hopefully we can do it again soon!


  1. Thanks for the pictures. I knew you all had a great time, but it's nice to see proof :)

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the boys in their matching shirts. What a handsome group of young men - serious heart breakers :)

  2. SO jealous! Gideyon would be so sad to know he missed the fun and the shirts. Thanks for posting pics of Mom and Dad. They are few and far between:) Glad you had a good time, and can't wait till it is my turn!

  3. It was fun!! I should look at my pics and see if any of them turned out. I am glad you got the boys in their shirts. Tell Robyn not to worry, we can buy new ones when we all get together (hopefully soon). The visit was very enjoyable. It was nice not to have anything we really HAD to do. It was all terrific----especially the no dishes part (even if Luke thinks you don't know how to cook). Loved the time together with your entire family.

    Love, MOM

  4. Fun to see pics of your family. I can't believe how BIG Luke is now (last time I saw him he was littler than Noah).... but your parents seem to have not aged a bit! =)
