May was special because we had some visitors. Ann's daughter, Michelle, spent Mother's Day with us, as I wrote about on my previous blog, but I didn't get a picture posted. It was such fun having Michelle with us.
Also, Karen and Ross Taylor spent a day with us. Ann took Michelle to the airport at 5 a.m. Monday morning (I didn't go with her), came home and we both went to pick up Karen and Ross at 10:00 a.m. It was a very stormy morning. In fact, Karen and Ross couldn't get off the airplane after it arrived for quite a while waiting for the lightning storm to pass. On the way home, we stopped at the Waffle House for breakfast. Ann and I had wanted to go there ever since we got here, thinking having waffles would be great. It was so bad -- looked like a giant Eggo and tasted worse. So much for the Waffle House. We then went to all the Independence Historical sites that we could fit into a day and went by the library to show them where we work every day (we were able to take the day off to spend with them). We ended up having dinner at Zio's -- an Italian place that we really enjoy, after which we had dessert at our apartment. Great day and we were so grateful for the effort that Karen and Ross made to come and visit us. We took them to the airport the next morning. Thanks so much for the visit Karen and Ross!!
