Our weekend in Cali

Last weekend we had the chance to go and visit hubby's grandparents in Northern California.  Wehadn't seen them since the wedding almost four years ago and the visit was way past due.  All in all we drove roughly twelves hours in just two days but it was so worth it.  They were so sweet and hospitable to us and we are so grateful to have them in our lives.
