Last Friday Opa & Oma arrived for a visit. It had been quite some time since they had been here so it was really nice to see them again!
They arrived on Friday night, then on Saturday Bob & I had a senior luncheon we had to do at the church so they babysat! The lengths we go to to get sitters:)
They took a short nap out in the sun (yep, Oma got a sunburn)and built a castle fun park out of duplo! Bob and I returned home about 2:30 ish and shortly after that we headed out to Tri-cities. Ashleys birthday was the beginning of March but because she has been sick for so long we still hadn't had a chance to go out for her 'birthday dinner' She decided she wanted to do it that night so Opa & Oma could come along. We went to Cousins in Tri Cities, where we learnt that Opa DOES like cheese on his french onion soup, or maybe he doesn't. We'll never know for sure.
Ashley got lots of practice moving Opas car, who knew he was so picky! Every time she parked it he insisted he wanted it the other way, two inches to the right, two inches to the left, sideways....it took her a good 30 minutes to park Opas car!
They were doing some target shooting by the back fence but nobody bothered to remind Brandi that you shouldn't put your eye up so close to the scope. Her memento of this fun weekend? A beautiful black eye. It started swelling immediately, the next morning it wasn't too bad at all but she was so embarrassed she decided to take a personal day and stay home from school. The next few days however the colors got much more vibrant and it was pretty hard to hide. So we tried to convince her that it actually made her sound pretty cool when she could explain to the boys at school that she had a black eye because she got 'scoped' by a gun!
