My parents came to Indiana to visit us for a week. My dad had a conference to attend at Purdue for work, so both mom and dad came out to stay with us.
Dallin and Connor were so excited for Grandma and Grandpa to come visit. They loved all the extra attention and story times.
We went blueberry picking one day. I love having so many local farms just outside of town, only a 10 minute drive from us.
Connor was a pretty good helper. Dallin kept insisting we were done and asked for lunch several times.
The boys carried the 6 pounds of blueberries for us.
We made a lot of delicious food while my parents were here, including blueberry pie, blueberry syrup and peach cobbler.
Mckay treated us to a selection of thai dishes.
Of course, we had to eat in traditional thai style by sitting on the floor.
He made two different main dishes (basil chicken and a spicy coconut curry), thai fried eggs, and rice.
and a delicious mango sorbet for dessert.
Hmmm, we had a lot of really good fruit desserts...
We went to Fair Oaks Farms, the best agro-tourism destination in central Indiana. We got to tour a dairy farm and a pig farm.
The pig farm specializes in breeding and birthing and you get to see newborn little piglets.
Dallin was really good at this exhibit: using ultrasound to see how many piglets the mom is carrying. We had the ultrasound for our baby #3 the day before, so Dallin knew exactly what to do. (Oh, I guess I should do a separate post about the baby's ultrasound...)
Part of the dairy farm experience is seeing the live birth of a cow.
We had delicious grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch from the cafe, and then enjoyed a few of the outdoor toys, like the train ride.
On the last day of their visit with us, we took grandma and grandpa to our local, free zoo.
Dallin played in the water for a bit.
And Connor slept.
We saw the monkeys.
There are several chickens who walk around free at the zoo and Dallin chased them.
Connor woke up just in time to see his favorite animals at the zoo: the goats.
He gets a little too friendly and we have to remind him not to pick up the goats.
We fed the goats some little food pellets and tried not to get pushed over by the wave of hungry goats that hit us when they saw food.
Connor loves getting as close as possible to the goats.
Dallin prefers a little space sometimes.
We rode on the zoo train.
I feel I hardly need to mention how much Connor loves riding the train.
After the train ride, we had my dad take a few pictures of our family.
The sun was working against us, so we didn't get many great shots.
Dallin in this one makes me laugh so hard everytime I see it.
Ahhhh, this way was so much easier for the eyes.
We had such a wonderful time with my mom and dad. We loved being able to spend time with them and we're really happy they could come out for a visit.
