The parentals

My parents came for a short, but lovely visit last weekend. It was so wonderful to have them here, it always goes too quickly. My mom and I spent most of our time together talking, cooking and making and canning spaghetti sauce out of tomatoes I picked from our highly productive garden. Isaac and Lucy were enamored as usual with my dad, and he spent most of his time playing with them. We also managed to go on a fun date to Julie & Julia (a MUST see). Even the boys liked it!

My parents brought the kids these foam swords. I went out to take a picture of them mid-fight, but Isaac said he would like a picture like this. Apparently this is what knights do. Duh.
