We spent most of the days shopping for the new house while Parker was at work. My dad is such a trooper and will go shopping with the girls without a second thought. I suppose that's what happens when you have a wife and four daughters. Either way, Dad you rock.
Probably the coolest part of the week was meeting Parker on base and letting my parents fly the simulator. They were excited and loved every minute of it! After showing them the C2 and letting them climb in the plane, we headed over to the simulator for a little hands on training. I loved getting to watch both of them fly, and I think it gave them an appreciation for how hard flying is. I know I could never do it!
On their last day here, we took my parents to the beach so they could stick their toes in the sand. Parker and I admittedly take living near a beach for granted. In the Navy, there is a 95% chance you're going to be stationed near the water, so we have gotten used to the beach thing. We went almost every weekend in Pensacola but we rarely ever go here. We need to get better about that. Anyway, I loved showing them the boardwalk and our little piece of the Atlantic. Mom and I wore our matching dresses, which garnered a few weird looks from the locals. Whatever, I'll match with her any day!
Dad wanted us to get his good side. He was pretty cooperative overall with my picture taking, which I appreciate. Love this dad of mine.
Mom had to get a picture with her granddog before she left! This is about as good as it gets when it comes to Jenny and smiling. She loves her Grammy though!
It was such a memorable, incredibly week. So blessed to have parents who love us so much and made the trip out to Virginia to see us. Please come back soon!
