First up was Jeff's dad, Jerry, and stepmom Cheryl. It was their first visit to see us in Katy and we LOVED sharing our lives here with them. They were able to step right into our busy schedules, including football practice and tumbling classes. They even came up to the elementary school to visit the kids at lunch time. Such a treat for Connor and Kaitlynn to show their grandparents around and have them here for a fun-filled long weekend!

|Love this picture of Connor joining us for lunch. He only wanted to hang with us for a few minutes so that he could return to the kids' table with his friends.|

Jerry and Cheryl picked a CRAZY weekend to join us -- right in the middle of football season. Connor just so happened to have 2 football games scheduled for the weekend that they were here, so there was lots of action and running around on the weekend. On the day of the games, we were experiencing record heat in the area which made for miserable spectator conditions. The grandparents were major troopers, taking it all in without a single complaint. We later commented on how great they were holding up despite the weather and hectic schedule. It was clear that Connor and Kaitlynn were lucky to have such "hearty" grandparents!

To add to our already crazy weekend, Jeff and I were so excited to be able to bring Jerry and Cheryl along with us to Sunday's Houston Texans game. It was their first NFL game and they picked a great one! There's just nothing like the energy and excitement of the fan experience at these games, and we felt so lucky to be able to share it with family.
