Our First Visitors

Soon after we announced we were moving to Grand Cayman, Jess and Ben planned their 10 day trip to visit us. They actually bought their plane tickets two months before we bought ours! It is so nice to have friends who are willing to spend the money and take the time to visit. We had such a great time together! The first half of their trip, the Wehners got to stay in the LTB studio apartment literally five doors down. I was glad we could offer the family of three some extra space while we had it. They moved in with us in the one bedroom on Tuesday, and stayed till Sunday afternoon. It was a tight squeeze, but we had a blast together. Lucy was SO well behaved and smiley, even though she wasn't doing much sleeping at night (to Jess and Ben's dismay). Vacationing with an 8-month-old baby is no easy thing, and I was very impressed with J&B's tag-team parenting! I thought it went pretty smoothly, but I guess we'll have to wait and see Jess' blog post to get the real story ;)

I've already put up a couple pictures from their visit (see boating and Thanksgiving 2.0), but here are a few more. First, we had to hit up Haagen Dazs' last day of the "buy two scoops get one free" deal. Reflection from store window: 1+1=3

On Wednesday we went to Copper Falls Steakhouse with Jenn and Nate. A+ restaurant! We loved that one cocktail and two sides were included in every entree price.

Brent's sirloin steak with burgundy mushroom sauce

My pork chop with homemade apple sauce and sweet potato fries - yummm

Jess took this shot of us outside the restaurant after dinner:

She was inspired by the SLR and decided to take some "artistic" shots:

On Thursday I snapped some family pictures for the Wehner's Christmas card. What a good-looking family! I just love these friends!

Thanks for the great visit, Jess, Ben, and Lucy! We miss you guys already!
