First Set of Visitors

We had some overnight visitors this past Thursday night and although our time was short, we tried to make the most of it.

My big sis, Tara and her family were here and we had a blast hanging out. Mara Kate enjoyed spending time with 4 of her cousins---ones she doesn't get to see too often, so it was a special treat having them here---all the way from Kansas City. We were a stop over for them on their vacation. They traveled to several different cities to see various family and friends as well as do some fun activities along the way.

We had a 2nd set of visitors come through for one night on Saturday night....my Mom and Dad, but they are coming back on Thursday to spend several more days for us after they attend a conference in South Carolina, so be looking for another post to come soon about their visit too.

A few pictures of our time together...

The "kids" table at supper

Mmm. Spaghetti and Meatballs. My mom's recipe with meatballs added.
It turned out pretty good.

Megan chowing down on some pasta.

Mara Kate checking out Aunt Tara's new Netbook.
It really seems like a "kid-sized computer, it's so small.

Megan---with morning hair! Love it!

The other kiddos (minus Megan who apparently had NO interest in posing for a photo) before they left Friday morning.
L to R: Liam, Dresden (who wants to make sure everyone knows that she is 4), Alley and Mara Kate

Tara and I---it was great to have you here in Rome! Love you!

I am so glad we got to come see you all in Rome, even if it was for just a short time. Your house is really cute and I look forward to coming back when I can stay longer. Thanks for having us!

Looking forward to being back.
