This past week has been pure bliss. My in-laws were visiting for a solid week and although we were busy working on the church nursery and whatnot (Greg's dad is amazing when it comes to building and doing heavy duty work), we also had a great time of bonding out in nature. Gramma, Selah and I made sure to stay active and spent time playing at Wilson Park in Torrance. We also took advantage of the scorching weather which was consistently in the 90s and built sand castles at Hermosa Beach. Why is it so extremely hot all of a sudden?! Actually, the entire world seems to be having crazy weather right now.
Then of course...Gramma and Grampa happily sent us on a date, and believe me--we certainly didn't protest to that request. After much Yelping last minute, Greg and I had dinner at R+D Kitchen in Santa Monica for the first time. The food was truly amazing and somewhat reminiscent of fusion slash pub cuisine, though more on the American side than Asian. I got the seared Ahi plate with veggies on the side while Greg ordered filet mignon and fries.
On the last day, we met up early for the breakfast buffet of the hotel they were staying at. The carrot muffin was probably the best item on my plate. The sweets from that breakfast probably helped me fend off the "see ya later" blues, since it's never ever easy to part ways. Even still, we're so thankful to have the privilege of seeing each other every few months. And once again I realize that life is too short to not take advantage of the relationships I've been given.
