My mom has been fortunate to come visit us in CA a couple of times already, including this January for the labor and delivery of my firstborn. She and my dad can’t take off across the country together because they take care of my moms dad who is elderly and quite full of dementia. He is a handful to say the least! (That’s another blog for another day) But this time she and I schemed to get my dad a ticket to fly out here to the bay area and meet baby Ella for the first time. He got here last night.
We are having a blast. Today we took it easy and ate breakfast here at the house and then did some driving around. I showed him downtown San Jose (specifically the house we might rent, more on that later) and we went by Babies R Us and also got some Philz coffee.
Then we met up with Stacie and Andy and the boys, Stacie’s parents who are in town from South Carolina. Stacie and I were college roommates and so our folks know each other too. Dad also got to see South Bay’s new facility. First Sunday in there will be May 6th! (More on that coming too! Lots of things to blog about!)
Then we took off to Santana Row and got some yogurt and enjoyed the beautiful day. Took some pics of Ella and her Doowah (that’s baby for Durwood). We topped it all off by grilling some pork chops at home and doing bath time which Ella now quite enjoys. Here are some of our pics from today…
