They Came From the South

My dad, Granny, and two nieces are sitting on an airplane right now taking them from Jackson, Mississippi to Portland, Oregon to come meet their new grandson, great-grandson, and cousin, Mr. Abe. I'm excited. I was up until 2am last night doing chores and woke up way too early, simply excited about them coming. Here is why:
They're good at making their own fun. Here is Granny (can you believe she's 76 years old?! Her pilates class kicked my butt when I went with her to her gym), Layne, and Daddy out at night practicing their best "warrior" yoga pose...

...and Lauren, here in Portland last summer, discovering meaningful ways to spend her hard-earned cash.

"Aw, man, I'd always wanted one of these!"

Oh man! I know a couple people with fart machines. I think they are a special type of person. :)
Fun that your family is coming! You make it sound like it's the first time for them to meet Abe so that is extra exciting. Have fun!

Hi, sorry it didn't work out to meet this week! Yes, let's plan on Dalo's Kitchen. Especially if the visit will consist of meeting these very cultured relatives of yours.

OK, hate to admit it, but I might have to buy that if I saw it too, if for nothing but the packaging. Who can resist a fart machine with "boom box" technology,15 louder sounds, a remote control, and which is so vastly improved over the original?

I also love the picture in the background of this photo of the child withe "pig" nostrils and the tissue, what is that?

Sounds like big fun is going to be had at your house this week.
