a visit from Lolo and Lola

Back in mid-February, we enjoyed a visit from my parents. Ben calls them Lolo and Lola, what we call grandparents in the Philippines. While my Dad is our "token", he still inherits "Lolo". :) Anyway, for six days we enjoyed spending time together. Ben is a lucky kid to get to be the only grandchild on both sides of our family, and has such a blast every time.

Here are some photos of our time together. Below, Rob and I attended his class' graduation, which was like a night out for us! It was also really neat to see all the students enjoy the moment with their families.
Below are a couple student spouses (Lillian and Barbara) who will be moving on to bigger and better things. We got to know them through attending the same church.Cheese! Enjoying our last meal out at Little Venice - a cute little restaurant in Starkville.
Eating at the good ol' "food court" at the BX/commissary, before a trip to watch the planes at the end of the runway.

getting on his level.
Mom and Dad, we always miss you. And I know that Ben enjoys you both bunches. I was always told being a parent was amazing, but I have heard that being a grandparent is pretty darn fun, too, if not better....
