Anyway, this Wednesday we had our aunts Marcia and bobbi came to visit. Look how much greener the grass looks when our visitors are walking by it!
After a long, homesick winter, it's been so wonderful this summer to fly home for a week and to have three sets of visitors. It's made Michigan feel a little closer, and it's nice knowing that at least a few old friends and family have gotten to see where we live. Things don't quite seem real until you share them with the people you love.
As it usually goes when guests arrive, we've been doing a lot of eating out (no complaints here). Here's the two of them entertaining us at The Elk. Can you see the sign on the wall behind them?
Yup, Guy Fieri visited for his show Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.

Today everyone met me in Coeur d'Alene, so they could take a look at my office at NIC. We saw this happy little guy trailing behind his owner's bike:
Tomorrow we drive to Cheney to show them Joe's campus, and we continue the eating spree!
