Our first visitors from Texas

My parents got here on Wednesday and we have had the best time showing them around our new town!

We have all really enjoyed having them here!  

My dad rented a Ford Mustang convertible to drive while they were here.

He said in all 60 something years of his life he's never driven a convertible.  We had a blast cruizing around town with the top down and the wind blowing through our hair.

We have enjoyed taking them to all the great restaurants and eating ALL the great food.  We made sure they had the Pulled Pork nachos from the Boathouse.  It is the best place to sit outside in the spring and summer.  I love watching the big barges pushing coal float down the river.  I think my parents enjoyed a break in the heat that Texas is having right now.  Although the summer has been very mild, Ohio weather has been simply amazing!  It didn't get above 88 degrees the entire week vs. 100 degrees in Texas!

We toured the town and took them to Lookout point so they could enjoy the awesome view.   It is one of my favorite places in town.  I love to take pictures of the cute little city!

Netsie showed Layla how to crochet.  I don't even know how to do it, so maybe Layla can teach me too!

We all had a fun time here at home just enjoying the weather and our backyard.  We can't wait for them to come back again soon!!
