nana and papa

nana and papa arrived as a late christmas present for a week’s worth of fun and relaxation. well let’s hope they had fun and relaxed!  the highlight of our fun was a trip to huntington beach. mom wanted to take us to a new beach all summer and only made it to about 3. oops. so she knew where to go when dad asked for ideas of things to do. surf city here we come…

it was cold. nana and papa may not come back as it didn’t seem much warmer than wisconsin.  but we have beaches.

he settled on these.

the second best part of nana and papa’s visit was bowling. ramps and bumpers can help even a 6 year old beat dad’s score.  and dad had his own shoes and ball.  he’s legit.

we topped off their visit with a little new year’s party. complete with martinelli’s and tiny “mugs”.
