The long awaited visit

After months of looking ahead to Max, Jenny, and Graham's visit, they came and are now back home again. It went by far too quickly, but it was lovely nonetheless. Graham has grown so much! And it's amazing how much is going on in that little noggin of his. :)
We went to pick them up in Sacramento and they then stayed at the Parishes for a few days during which they held the Return to Manhood conference. After that was over, they came to our house for a few days and at the end of their stay Mrs. Parish, Sally, and the Littles took them back to fly out of Sacramento. It was a sad goodbye, but I have my tickets to see them this Summer!

OH! Those are DARLING! I even dragged Jamie in here to look and he stayed for the whole thing! So many, MANY REALLY cute shots. Especially loved Graham looking out the window and his little sleeping face with the furrowed brow. But there were LOTS of great shots I kept having to revisit. Lovely post, Kaylee. Great job. ALMOST felt like I was there. :)

Oh what special memories! I'm so glad we were able to spend some time as a big family all together before Max and Jenny left. What a blessing, blessing is the gift of family!

I love that picture series of Graham and your Dad. SO cute!

Hugs,
