Family Visit (March 2020)

MAR 5 – MAR 9 (2020)


My parents arrived for a visit…Yay!


I took a personal day, but Todd had school. We went hiking to the top of Castle Rock (see post, “Hiking: Castle Rock (3/06/20)“).

This was an action-packed day. In the morning, Todd wanted to go to the Dr. Seuss day activities at his school. I took him to that event, and he had fun playing games and making crafts. Here is a picture of Todd with his chapel buddy (she adores him!)…

After the Dr. Seuss activity, I handed Todd off to Eric, and they went to a birthday party for Todd’s classmate (Ian). Todd made a sweet card. I love the way he makes hearts!

At this point, I caught up with my parents at Ye Olde Bookshoppe. Afterward, we had smoothies/lunch at Seattle Yoga Café.

Next, Todd played at the elementary school playground. Grandma convinced Todd to try riding his bike without training wheels for the first time (he was motivated by a Lego set). He did great!

Finally, we went out for dinner at a favorite Mexican restaurant in Cashmere, WA: Agave Azul. YUM!

We all went to Mission Ridge for a day of skiing. It had been several years since my dad last skied, but it had been a very long time since my mom had. It turned out Grandma picked it up much easier than she thought she would!

Mom bailed out so she wouldn’t ski off the edge / run into a tree!

My parents went home! We started this school week not realizing it would be the last ‘regular’ week of school before the school closure! (And it wasn’t even a full week due to school conferences Wed/Thur and no school for Todd Friday.)
