During this past week, my parents came for a visit. It was sooooo wonderful to see them!!

Unfortunately I ended up having the worst cold I've had in years and had to spend too much of their visit in bed. By the way, do you ever reach an age where you don't want your mama to take care of you when you're sick? Because I'm a grown mother of three and I still want my mommy when I'm sick. 

Anyway, it was so amazing to have them here. They just left this morning and we're already missing them terribly. 

Mom & Dad: I promise to be a better hostess next time. Love you and thanks for everything!!

Here are some shots from their visit:

A beautiful scenic drive we took out to San Juan Bautista 
My dad's name is Jim and he is known for having a crabby exterior (he's a total softie underneath it all -- shhhh don't tell him that I told you though), so we thought this was the perfect restaurant for him :-)
Holy group cuddle

We had so much fun flying kites at Asilomar Beach yesterday!

An attempt at a family shot:

Come back soon Grandma and Grandpa!!!


  1. Oh my sweet Melissa, we had a wonderful time with you all. Sorry you were sick, but it was wonderful. Your home is beautiful it looks right out of a House Beautiful magazine. You have done an excellant job decorating it. The area you live in is simply gorgeous. You are beautiful, your boys are beautiful. Your husband is beautiful. You have a great life. We will definitely return. Probably for the winters. :-)

  2. It was fun having your folks over, they can impose anytime they want. Yeah, Sunday's beach day was a perfect outing. Look forward to seeing Pat and Jim more!

  3. Bahaha that picture and description of your dad in front of the restaurant is priceless!! It must have been amazing having your parents for a visit. I'm sorry to hear that you were under the weather, but it looks like you still managed to have a great time. You all look so happy! My parents arrive on Saturday and it will be their first time on the east cost. I can't wait!

  4. oh i'm sorry you weren't feeling your best, but still looks so fun! XO
