This weekend, Andrew's parents came to town for a last minute visit. It had been almost a month since we saw them in Dubuque for Christmas, and they were excited to see Cora again.

+ Our first stop after their arrival was at The Casual Pint to show them where Andrew spends a couple of nights each week
 - Andrew broke about three glasses at The Casual Pint. Luckily, they were pretty cool about it, but I told them to take it out of his paycheck.

+ On Saturday, we headed to Lauritzen Gardens to check out the latest LEGO sculptures. Andrew had never been before, and I am always amazed with the work that goes into them.
+ We grabbed some lunch at Farnam House before scoring some pretty great deals in the Bargain Cave at Cabella's
+ I had dinner in the slow cooker at home and we headed back so Cora could have some down time.
- After Cora woke up from her nap, she had a low grade temp and no appetite...
+ After putting her to bed, we introduced Jim and Steph to our current favorite board games Ticket to Ride and Exploding Kittens
- We had plans to go to brunch on Sunday morning, but Cora's temp had spiked to 102F overnight.

+ Although Sunday because a lazy day because Cora was sick, I was so glad for the extra cuddles.
+ Thankfully, by Monday morning she was feeling much better. We kept her home, just to play it safe and I think she had fun hanging with dad all day!

Sick babies make for an exhausting weekend, and I'm so glad she is on the mend! What fun things did you do?
