Just The Ten Of Us!

Andy's family came to visit last week. There were ten of us total, ranging in age from 10 months up to 80 years! I think we all really enjoyed our time together, and they were great houseguests as always. Next time we might consider renting a big van, as transportation was a little complicated.

Thanks to Grandma Spangler's generosity, we enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Spaghetti Factory on Monday. It had been ages since we'd been downtown, and we really enjoyed the atmosphere and witnessing that the district was as lively as back when we were in college and enjoyed it more frequently.

Astonishingly, we do not have a group photo from the weekend, but here is some documentation of the fast and furious action our Cozy Coupe enjoyed:

Sophie and Zoe, driver trainees...

Sophie wasn't quite prepared for the shift into Reverse...
Forward, ho!
And this is my favorite, of the girls crashing into our foyer table...
Drive safe!

P.S. A totally unrelated plea for help: I am looking for a two- or three-day a week nanny/sitter. Please let me know if any of you know someone who might be interested.

We went to see Lion King at TPAC last fall. That was the first time I'd been downtown in years. It's funny since we went about every weekend in college. Of course, we think be out past eight is a late night these days.

I know someone that is interested in watching children in her home during the week. She has a little boy and a baby girl on the way. I think that she currently watches one other child during the week but I'm not sure how many days. The only problem for you would be that she lives in the Mt. Juliet/Lebanon area. That'd be a pretty good drive for you. I doubt that you'd be interested but I thought that I'd tell you about it anyway.

Looks like you guys had a great time! I can't believe how BIG the Flan Clan is getting! It's neat to see the little ones all running around together. :-)

With love,
