We were so glad to have my parents, "Marge" and "Big D", come visit for a long weekend! John left early Thursday morning for a conference in Atlanta while Mom and Dad arrived in Boston late that night. It was about 10:30 when they got to our apartment so they just got to peek at Chance in his crib. This about killed my mom..... but she did good.... she actually let him sleep :). We stayed up and visited for a little while. Just as we were going to bed, Chance stirred a little so Mom and Dad did get one quick kiss before they went to sleep.
Friday we had a nice, relaxing day. We drank coffee, watched GMA, and they passed Chance back and forth all morning.
Dad went and got a massage and went to the Fenway area to get some Red Sox gear, so Mom and I went for a stroll with Chance and went into some neighborhood shops. That night, Dad and I walked and picked us up some pizza and we watched a movie. Chance loved getting lots and lots of attention and having some new playmates around! John got back in from Atlanta around 12:30 that night.
After brunch we did some shopping. It was a successful trip.... everyone came home with something! Then we dropped Dad off for a nap, John to get supper, and Mom, Chance, and I headed to a wedding shop. I was so glad to get to try on LA and Rae's bridesmaids dress. That night, John treated us to a delicious meal! We had steak, greek potatoes, green bean bundles, and bread. We also celebrated Marge's birthday (a few days early) and Chance was glad to help open presents!
Sunday we had a lazy day. We laid around and once again, Mom and Dad enjoyed lots of time with Chance. They also treated me to a mani/pedi, so I slipped out and had some nice time all to myself. Then, John and I got out for a "mini date". We went and got some frozen yogurt and walked in some stores around our neighborhood. The only stuff we bought were things for Chance :) but it was nice to walk around just the two of us! We all got ready and headed to the North End for an early dinner.
Our original dinner plan did not work out due to a packed restaurant with no room for a stroller. Thankfully, in the North End there are tons of great places to eat! So, we walked down the street and found somewhere else. We ended up at Rabia's and it was great! They sat us immediately and had plenty of room for Chance's stroller. We had another delicious meal and once again Chance did such a good job.
Even though it was past his bedtime, he was a little trooper! Our other plan for the evening was to get cannolis at Mike's Pastry. There usually is a line out the door but I have never seen as long of a line as there was that night. With plenty of other dessert options in the area, we headed home with 6 yummy cupcakes for later.
Monday came way too fast. We enjoyed one last morning together before John drove Mom and Dad to the airport to head home. I am so glad they came to visit. It was so nice to spend time together and for Chance to get lots of loving from his Marge and Big D!
