My parents are visiting us this week, which is always a nice break. I still have to work, but it feels a little bit like vacation and a good excuse to put things off. Their visit was a good reason to get the house in order, finish little projects and do a solid cleaning (ahem - pay for a maid). Gwendolyn is especially looking forward to their visit since Nana has been telling her we will celebrate summer birthdays all over again. Bring on the ice cream cake!
