Whirlwind Week

We've had a whirlwind week at the Merrill household. Grandma and Grandpa (Chris's parents) and YaYa (my mom) flew in last Thursday. Saturday was Elena's 2nd birthday celebration. Sunday Poppa (my dad) flew in and Monday Chris was awarded a medal for valor in combat last year. Tuesday Chris's parents flew home. We have a few days left with my parents before they fly back to Maine on Friday. Like I said, a whirlwind. It has been lots of fun and the kiddos have loved, loved, loved the extra attention even if they have been a bit of a bear at times because of overexcitement.
