My parents and my niece Livi came to visit us this summer right after Kirk and PJ left. I love when they come to visit but hate that the time flies by way too fast. We did have a blast though and I loved every minute!
|Little wooden Pinocchio puppet and super long pink pencil I brought Livi from our trip to Europe.|
|I loved watching Livi and Jacob cuddle. She gives the BEST loves!|
|Two of my favorite people|
|Such a little diva|
|We met Jacob one day on his lunch break at his favorite Mexican restaurant, Lonespur.|
|I started a theme of taking pictures of Livi eating all different summery foods. She loves her pickles.|
|We visited the Minneapolis Institute of Art which is a real gem here in Minnesota. Admittance is free and there are so many amazing artifacts and art pieces to see.|
|We went the Minneapolis Farmer's Market one morning and wandered through the isles of beautiful flowers, fresh produce, and handmade items. There was also a stand there that was selling the best sweet corn I've ever eaten. Apparently she loved it too.|
|We took my parents to the Cheesecake Factory. Although it's not the fanciest restaurant in the Twin Cities, it has a huge menu. So there's something for everyone. I also wanted them to try the cheesecake. Although red velvet is becoming a little overdone in the world of food, their red velvet cheesecake is to die for.|
|"Down by the bay....where the watermelon grows.."|
|We went shopping one day and Livi thought it was hilarious that the store had the same shirt she was wearing.|
|During their stay, my stomach flared up again and I was ill one afternoon. My mom and Livi made me this drawing. I didn't want to erase it because it was so sweet.|
As it always does, the time came for them to leave. It's always hard saying goodbye,but seeing them again gives me something to look forward to!
