March 24, 2008 - Today's the day

that I get to visit and catch up with my in-laws! Hilary's Mum and Stepdad arrived late last night and are here for a week! They live on the opposite coast to us, so we only see them once or twice a year, and often we only see them for a couple of days at a time as they stop in on their way to other destinations.

This trip is solely to visit with us! Liam was beside himself with excitment yesterday. He started asking around 11:00 AM if it was night time yet as he knew they were arriving after he would be asleep. We managed to keep him quiet till about 8:00 this morning to give them a chance to fight of some jet lag.

I'm really glad that he has this week to spend with them and to bond. Long-distance family relationships are hard on kids, as these grown-ups almost seem like strangers if you only see them once a year. We try to keep the relationships real to him through pictures and phone calls, but nothing beats having Grandpa sitting on the floor playing KidKinnex with you!
