Granny and Uncle Derek Visit

Over the last week my mom and brother took to spend time with us, but mainly to see Eva.  It has been almost 6 months since we've all been together, so it was about time to get some quality time again.  They only had 4 full days here, so we had to cram as much time as possible.  On Tuesday, while Dana was hard at work, the rest of us put on our Web Design Solutions Tshirts and paid Dana a visit to have lunch together...

On Wednesday, I took full advantage of having Granny to babysit, for Derek and I spent the day together at the beach, then Dana and I ended the night with a date downtown.  I had so much fun doing both, bonding with my bro and my husband, while Granny and Eva bonded at home.  It was so nice :)

On Thursday, Dana took the day off to spend with all of us, so we spent the day at the zoo.  I think we all agree that it was the best trip to the zoo that any of us has been on and for many different reasons.  First, the weather was perfect, it was cool with the sun just slightly peaking, which meant all the animals were out to play.  Second, summer is gone and it was a week day so there weren't many other people there (you could get up close to animal).  And third, Eva LOVED seeing all the animals, and even got to pet a few herself...

She enjoyed standing next to the glass and getting a really good look at everything...

All in all, it was the perfect day for all of us.

When we weren't out and about, we spent alot of time at home entertaining Eva (or letting Eva entertain us).  Uncle Derek and Granny spent every waking minute that they could keeping that little girl happy.  She absolutely loved the added attention.

Before we had to say our good-byes, Dana arranged a Happy Hour with the Web Design Solutions team and extended the invitations to friends and family.  We all got together for some appetizers and a few drinks.  It was the perfect end to the work week for the team and nice to have all the spouses meet one another...here is some of the group:

And one of my brother and I:

Early Saturday morning it was time for Granny and Uncle Derek to leave.  When we woke up, they were gone and the house was empty.  It was hard to feel their absence, but I will just cherish the wonderful time we all had together and look forward to next time.
