Grandma & Grandpa Uhl Visit

Andy’s parents, who live in Boston, flew in for a weekend visit. It was so good to see them, too.


Sophie had three firsts when we picked up Andy’s dad at the airport: (1) her first trip to an airport, (2) her first walk through a revolving door and (3) her first time on an escalator (we carried her instead of lugging around the stroller).


After dinner at The Pub (I guess you could say Sophie had fish and chips, secondhand), we drove back to the airport to pick up Andy’s mom. She flew in from Phoenix where she was working all last week.



Grandma had to spend a lot of time consoling Sophie, who had a bit of stomachache. In fact, the first thing Sophie did to Grandma Saturday morning was throw up all over her—I’m sure Sophie’s going to hear that story for many, many years.


Grandpa loved singing songs to Sophie, especially in the car. And Sophie would just smile and stare and smile and stare … she loved Grandpa’s songs.


Grandma says Sophie must love to shop, because Sophie’s always getting packages from Boston filled with clothes. But Grandma was able to give Sophie this outfit in person.
