Like a kid in a candy store...

My weekend started with an awesome surprise.  

Larry and Margo and Guy are visiting from Belize for a month.

And I had no idea they were coming in....they were not supposed to be back til mid-July

In hindsight, I should have guessed they were coming in sooner.  Gary has been doing a lot of things for Larry to get his place ready for their "July" visit.  Yes, I am clueless at times.

Saturday, I joined Larry and Margo for a shopping trip. It was the most fun I have had shopping for awhile. Having lived on a tropical island for the past six months really made them appreciate the one-stop venue that is Target. 

Larry:  Mom, come quick.  Look at this. (He was staring at peanut butter.)
Me: Yeah....
Larry: Look at all the choices.  In Belize, there are maybe two choices, and one is expired. And they have Citrus Flavored Red Bull.  I love that stuff.

So much has changed in the six months since they left for Belize.  Larry's office space was converted to an apartment which he now shares with his brother when he is in own. And, more importantly, there is an App to order Sheetz from his  phone.   

And some things haven't changed. He can order Papa John's as often as he likes.  And the Internet is lightning fast ...or so it seems, after dealing with Belizean speeds.

So for a few weeks, Larry and Margo will rekindle their love of American consumerism and spend some time with family and friends.  And we will get to spend some time with them.

As much as I appreciate that all 3 of my kids have an entrepreneurial and adventurous spirit that sometimes takes them to other cities, states, and countries, I do love when they are all in town.

I will try not to be too much of a pest the next few weeks.
