Only two days after returning from our trip to Kenya, we went to the airport to pick up two very special visitors - my parents. We had not seen them in 23 months and therefore were so excited that they made an effort to come.
Sitting, relaxing, visiting and catching up on the front porch was our regular hang out spot at the house. It didn't take long for Lobo (the dog) to enjoy their company too. The kids really enjoyed being around their grandparents again too. To not see children in two years seems like you miss a lot... they grow so much.
Every few days, we replenished the fruit supply. I knew that the fresh tropical fruits would be their regular snacking food.
We did go out a few times, and on one of those occasions, went to the town of Jinja. We hopped on a boat "cruise" and enjoyed the scenery on the River Nile and Lake Victoria.
We went to the Wildlife Education Centre in Entebbe. The place is similar to a zoo and it accommodates animals that are indigenous to Uganda, many of which were orphaned. We got a very close-up look at the rhinos... so close that we actually were able to touch him!
The group shot... as they get ready to head back home.
We are so thankful. It was time well spent. One we will not forget.
And good-byes are still hard.
