First of all, THANK YOU so much for all the very kind comments on that last post. I really appreciate it.

But I'm a little embarrassed so let's put something else front and center on here.

How about some pictures of my parent's visit?

I love my parents.

I went a little hog-wild taking pictures of our trip to the childrens' museum when they were in town, but I'll just post my two favorites for now.

Let's take note of three things:

1) How could you not just adore those parents?

2) Claire is well aware of the two things she needed to do to get this picture over with: smile cute and get her little sister to look at the camera so her mother will put that darn thing back in her bag.
3) Lucy's cheeks make good handles.


  1. LOL!!!!! Shawni you crack me up. Thanks for the smiles. Too funny. And SO cute!

  2. oh my goodness shawni! that is hilarious!

  3. if there was ever an appropriate time to use the term lol (i hate that term, i hate it! because are you really laughing out loud? usually no) would be NOW. i just chuckled - loud. hahahah! i love it!

  4. Yes, I really am laughing OUT LOUD! TOO ADORABLE!

  5. Shawni,

    Your parents are sure amazing people and are loved throughout the whole world;)
    Congrats on the Mother of the Year award. That is so so awesome and well deserved!!!!
    Hugs that sweet Lucy and kiss her adorable cheeks for me.
    Love you guys,

  6. Oh, that is such a great picture! It gave me a much needed laugh today. What a savvy little photography assistant you have!

  7. your parents ARE adorable. I'm very excited to attend the retreat at their home. Thanks for your blog! :)

  8. so cute! ps - your link to your parents blog is missing a "www" - prepping to be a parent and wanted to browse it...

  9. so cute! ps the link to your parents website is missing a "www" - wanted to check it out and was uber disappointed when it gave me an error.

  10. Love it! I also love your dad's expression in that first picture. What a character!

  11. Okay, now that is hilarious!

    And yes, your parents are stinkin' cute!!

  12. Okay...this is the best yet. Poor Lucy, she doesn't look like she's enjoying having her cheeks rearranged.
    And...How can you not love a dad who is cool enough to wear his cap backwards?
    Good times.

  13. Those cheeks are so loveable! I'm glad they serve other purposes, too. Absolutely hilarious! I've really enjoyed keeping up with your family. I love your stories and your writing style. I totally feel like we're all friends. Connections like these help make the world go 'round. Thanks for sharing, Shawni! :D

  14. the cheeks are awesome, your dad wears crazy shirts like my dad.

  15. Oh my! That last photo is too cute and funny! Looks like Claire should have helped Grandpa look at the camera as well :)
    Stumbled across your blog and I've gotta say that I LOVE it!!! Thank you for sharing! And your photography is amazingly beautiful!
