Grandma and Grandpa

Grandma and Grandpa are here! Grandma and Grandpa are here!Currently Bryan and I don't exist...

The kids (and us) are very happy to have visitors. We've coffeed-up my parents and kept them captive in the house (we've been snowed in 2 of the 3 days they've been here). My mom and I are going up to the new house in Royan tomorrow to hook up the heat and the phone/internet, as well as taking up a load of stuff from the house that wouldn't fit in our car for the move. Plans this week include a couple of trips into Spain to see Pamplona and Bilbao, since as of next week we'll be living too far to go for the day. Also planning to go out for dinner to a place that doesn't serve food in paper containers; we'll have 4 sets of hands to assist in the leisurely French dining experience. On Friday we visited Biarritz for some Basque chocolate and a walk on the beach. While we were taking in the beauty of the ocean, it began to snow so we ate our chocolate and headed home. There's been snow on and off ever since. The kids built a Maisy snow mouse before it melted today.

Please tell your Mom and Dad that Georgie and Jan send regards from the homestate.

On another note, it has been so much fun keeping up with your great adventure and the little ones growth via your website. I love the pictures with the snowman!
