Oops.  I realized today that I wrote this post and then never actually published it.  So it’s been about three weeks since then.

My parents were here this past weekend because Sunday Tim and I joined our church (Redemption Orthodox Presbyterian), and our children got baptized.  Even though it was a short visit, we had a great time with them.  My dad and Tim took the children swimming Sat. morning, while my mom and I went to the grocery store…not that glamorous for the girls, but at least we had good company.  Then after lunch my parents kept the kids, so that Tim and I could go furniture shopping!  I think we may have found something we like…finally!  So maybe we’ll actually have somewhere to sit in a couple of months (hahaha!).  [Aside: I have no one to blame but myself for this lengthy lack of furniture and I am very much looking forward to having somewhere comfortable to hang out other than our new (lovely and very soft, padded carpet), but in the meantime, the kids are having a blast running around our empty family room.]

Sat. afternoon Tim took my dad out to go bowling and then play pool, and then the four adults got to go out to dinner thanks to Jessie our babysitter.  We went to Piesano’s, a local stone-fired pizza restaurant, and had some yummy food and lots of laughs.  Have I mentioned that my dad is the world’s best story-teller? 🙂

Sunday morning went great (praise the Lord!).  When we originally told the kids about their baptism, Lucy was somewhat fearful and weepy, but God helped everyone to be calm during the actual event.  (I was a little weepy though.)  My parents were supposed to take pictures, but realized that their camera was dead after we arrived at church :(.  Sorry, Katie!  I think that my dad took pictures with his phone, but I have yet to see them.  Also one of my friends took some video with her i-phone, so I’ll have to see if I can post that.
