Mom and Dad are finally here!

Only 2 1/2 months seems like it zoomed by, when we went to get Mom and Dad today - it's so great to have them here for a month! And perfect timing, during the kids' spring break - they can join us for Paris and Disney and Normandy and fun playing. Steevie woke up with a bit of a sore throat, so it worked out perfectly for him to skip school (we have a real excuse, since they're sticklers about that) and he loved going to pick them up with me...

Then we did some fun sight-seeing, driving around to some of the cute Swiss places we love -- the tulip farm...

(Mom stayed in the car for that stop...)

Then our favorite little chocolatier patisserie/confiserie for some yummy European treats...

And now they're napping. It's gorgeous perfect weather here now, so it's great timing to take them all around!  The kids are especially excited to show them all the flowers in bloom everywhere... here's Kas at a cute little place in downtown Nyon by a castle near the lake -- so much to do and to see!

Funny moment with Kenny -- in church yesterday, we had amazing speakers. But by the last one, Kenny was ready to get moving onto Sunday school class, so he asked when it was over, and I said, "he's about to say amen and be done." So about 3 minutes later, he said, "Mom, you said 'in about to', and it's been 'about to.'  I love how everything's black and white with kids. One of the speakers talked about that -- remembering to stop and enjoy our little precious children and listen to them because we can learn so much from them. It's so true.
