“Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.” — Jane Howard

It feels like a holiday: My parents are in town; it’s chilly outside; we’re making potato soup and Halloween costumes. But, really, they are here for a much simpler reason. They’re here because we are. Because four months ago we moved 6,000 miles away and we took the grandchildren with us. In these two weeks, we’re trying to cram in as much as we can. There will be plenty of mundane trips to the grocery store, walks to the park, and pizza delivery — even those become exotic in a foreign country. There will be trips to the Iara Valley, the Turda Gorge, and that amazing bakery hidden down a side street. But most of all, there will be hugs, story times, train-track construction, games on Gramy’s iPhone, bowls of popcorn, impromptu dance recitals, and an abundance of laughs and stickers.

  4. Love the pictures and so awesome your parents are visiting 🙂

  5. Enjoy every moment with your parents. Glad they are with you and the fam.

  6. Yay for family! Routines, mundane or otherwise, with familiar faces in unfamiliar surroundings are sometimes all we need to feel at home I think. Enjoy their visit. How lucky you are to have such wonderful and loving parents.

  7. Such beautiful pictures! Enjoy your extended family time! What a joyful, fun time for you all!

  8. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! It is such a thrill for us when grandparents come to visit. Extra love, extra attention, extra hands. It’s all good. I can imagine how much more thrilling those visits are when you are living far from home.

    Love all the photographs, as usual, but especially the one with the socks with the size on the bottom. I have been known to stretch a 0-6 sock onto a three year-old. Whatever’s clean(ish), right?

  9. Feetie jammies just make me happy. I’m so very glad you are getting to spend time with your parents.

  10. I think it’s a wonderful treat, for both your family and your parents! I hope you had (have?) a wonderful time!

  11. Beautiful photos. It is always so nice when Mom and Dad come to visit! Except I always cry when they leave.
