Visit from our Compadres!

Well, it has been two whole weeks since my spring break.... my week off went by way too quick...and suddenly I find myself two weeks away from final exams! *enter freak-out mode*

I did have a wonderful spring break though.... my parents came home from Florida and spent a couple of days with us...and then F's Godparents came all the way from Queretaro Mexico to spend 3 days with us!

Cony, Jesus, Marta (Cony's sister) and Pau (C&J's daughter) all came to see us!!!

We had a great, but very busy visit! The kids absolutely adore all the attention.... and boy did they get the attention! :)

We went to the Henry Ford Museum.... The adults had a great time...the kids... not so much... so mom (that's me!) came to the rescue and we spent our time looking at the Oscar Mayer Wiener Mobile and eating hotdogs and nachos... Now THAT, the kids enjoyed!
We also took the kids to their first IMAX movie.... dont remember the name...but it was shot by scuba divers...and was all about underwater life and such... since I dive, it really gave me the diving itch again.... with the really did look like it does when you are down under.... The kiddo's made it about 10 mins into the movie with their 3d glasses on...then off they came...I guess they didnt like the "motion" feeling you get from the 3d movie... plus they kept trying to grab the fish!
Marta and Pau provided soda and popcorn for us during the movie.... and that's always a good thing!

Jesus and my dh went to Cabela's...and us girls (with F) went shopping... F and L got to make animals at Build a Bear... they now will not go to bed without their new friends.... it's soo cute... The little Lady carries her "baby" everywhere now....

We ended our visit by having an adults only dinner at Mongolian BBQ... the food is fantastic and the beer was refreshing and cold! It was also very nice to be able to eat at our leisure and to sit around and talk... actually we sat around and talked a little too much... as we actually were the last ones in the restaurant....and our waitress had finished her sidework!

Our visit ended on Sunday morning at 6am... we hated to see everyone leave.... but they had to get back to work.... and I had to get back to school.

Here are some pics from the visit!

E and K posin at the Wiener Mobile!

The boys at their first IMAX movie!

Pau, Jesus, and Cony, with F (their Godson)

Jesus tried to get a large group picture... but the kids were obviously NOT cooperating!

Ahh... the enjoyment of dining without kids!!!!
