For those of you who don't know, the Walbas are my parents. It's a namethat Michael affectionately made up years ago and it stuck with my children. It is a combinaton of their first names, Wally and Trelba. Anyways, the Walbas came and spent last week with us. We had a lot of fun. The kids love having them here. We don't usually plan too much to do because we like to be abe to just have time to spend together. We had wrestling matches which my children always lost, basketball games and HORSE, dress up, snuggling time, a wagon ride, dinner at Cracker Barrle and ice cream at Cold Stones. The visit seemed too short, as usual, and there were many tears when it was time to say goodbye. Luckily there is always the promise of next year. We also have the convenience of email and telephone which we have already used several times since they left yesterday morning!
