G-ma Thiriot's Visit

My Mom stopped in VA for a few days to visit on her way back to England. She's spent the last month in Utah helping my sister Nancy with her new baby. We were so excited to see her for a few days! Thanks to Grandpa and the kids at home for sacrificing an extra week so we could get some hugs and kisses from Grandma!

Grandma read lots of books, colored, played games, watched the kids play in the paddle pool, made gingerbread-men cookies (with a funny and memorable explosion of dough...oops!)

We flew a Strawberry Shortcake kite at the park...it flew so well!

Hayley has inherited a love of foot massages from both of her Grandma's. She loves to give them footrubs when they come to visit...welcome to Spa Messick!

A visit from friends or family wouldn't be complete without a visit to our favorite burger place then a stop at Jo Jo's--an outside soft ice cream place. I think Alice even got a little lick--lucky baby!

And then we said goodbye so our cousins could have a few days with Grandma too...Here's all the Virginia cousins! What a crew!
