Carter's looking over my shoulder right now naming off all the people in the pictures..."There's Tarder, and Femma, and Nina, and Papa and Bavin!" (Can you figure out who's who?)
Brandon's parents were in southern Oregon for a quading trip this last week and made time to come up here to visit us and meet Gavin.
It was (as always) raining while they were here, so we made cookies, watched a movie...
Jemma took a nap on Papa (tuckered out from their tickling match)...
and we went out to dinner. We orignially went to The Cheesecake Factory...but there was a 45 minute wait...on a THURSDAY NIGHT for crying out loud...so we bailed on that and headed over to Red Robin where they seated us as soon as we walked in! Now that's what I'm talkin' about.
I've decided that our kids are generally pretty good when we go out to eat...maybe it's because it rarely happens...anyway, Jemma kept asking to go see the Red Robin that was walking around...eventually he came over to us and that MADE her night. When the Red Robin was headed away from us, he looked down at something, and Jemma caught a glimpse of a head under the costume...she then said, "Hey! That's not a bird! It's a human!"
Carter didn't want to have much to do with the Red Robin...he liked it better from a distance rather than up close and personal. And Gavin, well, he was a perfect newborn and slept right through dinner and all the way home. :)
