My mom called to chat yesterday about 4pm, and as I was talking to her, Billy suggested that we hop in the car and drive down to see them. (They live about an hour and 15 minutes away.) We realized that we hadn't been there for 3 weeks, and it would be at least another 3, if not longer, before we could get down there again, because we have Kelly's wedding next weekend, and Santa Cruz the following week, so we decided to go for it.
We enjoyed a nice visit with Grandpa, Grandma, Auntie Monki & Ryan, and my parents' friends, Dick & Debbie Williams finally got to meet Teo. (Debbie officiated at our wedding last year & has been dying to meet the little man!) Grandpa got some cuddle time, but Grandma had a small surgical procedure on Thursday, and since Teo is in a very grabby phase - and once he grabs he doesn't let go! - we decided it would be better to wait until she is healed, just in case. Next time, Grandma, next time.
Teo was fabulous - slept in the car both ways, and was his sweet, sparkling self for everyone to enjoy. He even put on a little bit of a show when Auntie Monki played some music for him (see video below)!
Thanks for suggesting the trip, Billy! A good time was had by all, but my un-spontaneous self would never have gone had you not suggested it! We love you, dada!
