I'm needing to back track a couple of events since I've been busier than normal.
First, the parent's visit.
When my parents first got here we asked them if there was anything in particular they wanted to do while they were in the A* area. My Dad had read about the top 5 burger joints in the nation in the Wall Street Journal. One of them happened to be downtown called Dirty's. He thought we should try it out. Only my brothers and sisters will appreciate the true irony in this request.
We also took them to a couple of local places that we take lots of our visitors to.
What? You don't see anything? Yeah, neither did about half the crowd. However, we did see this as it flew onto my diaper bag. More people were oohing and awing at this little guy than they were at the bats. We laid the credit card down so you could tell how big this thing was. Some girl told us it's a "longhorn beetle" ... very appropriate.
Thanks Mom and Dad for the great visit. We had a blast and can't wait to see you again.
