We are happy to have my parents visiting from New Brunswick this week. They arrived loaded with 4 huge suitcases filled with very few of their own things. Mostly they brought baby stuff I had been requesting. Bottles because I only had one. Plastic bibs because the cloth ones create too much laundry. Clothes because I bought too much when I was home and ran out of room in our bags. And of course they brought toys that make noise and light up. Because that's what Grandparents do.
They were also nice enough to include a few little things for Nick and I, like the newest technology in smoke detectors. Because... well, that's my Dad. Most notably they brought Tim Horton's donuts which I've said before (see 'The Year In Review') are considered a rare and cherished delicacy by all. Now if I was a very experienced blogger I would have thought to take pics of the donuts before we and the other vultures picked the boxes clean. Unfortunately, I didn't think to do so. So you get the pics of the smoke detectors instead.
Thanks Mom and Dad. It's great to have you here :)
