After our failed attempt at a MAC flight this summer - my mom caved in on her plan to NOT fly "all the way to Guam" and booked a ticket very shortly after we gave up our attempt and made my step-dad agree to tag along and
They left this morning after a two week stay.
I'm not sure they had a vacation really....with all the chaos that is the normal in our house,
but we did enjoy their visit and had a great time having them here.
A few snapshots:
For our first day, and tour around the base - I thought maybe they shouldn't feel so far from home.
So we went to Nap's....
|Another day - Molly McGee's on base|
for some Irish Pub Grub
It was out to Jeff's Pirate Cove for some family
fun in the sun and a little FEISTA dinner,
Red rice and chicken kelaguen.
If you notice a theme here around food....
On the way to
Jeff's Pirate Cove,
we toured around the south side of the island,
but she did, with the help of Big John at Fort Soledad.
We stopped at Inarajan Pools with a swimming break for the kids
(who were sick of the "history lesson")
They also did some touring on their own while the kids were at school.
They saw three of Michael's cross-country meets and one of Isaac's soccer games.
My mom did a lot of dishes, laundry and homework help.
They are heading to Hawaii for a week before heading back to Alabama.
But the room is available for the next guests.....who's coming?
