The in-laws visit

Jeff's Mom and Brother will be staying with us this week. I'm really looking forward to it, and I'm not just saying that in case they're reading!

Maybe most people don't get excited when their in-laws visit, but I'm an opportunist and love it when family (aka babysitters) stay with us. It's really a win-win situation. They get all kinds of quality time with Evan, who let's face it, is the real reason they're coming. We get a built in excuse to eat out in excess, I have people to keep me company until Jeff gets home, I get to play lots of board games with my trapped guests, and we'll have two extra hands to share the toddler load - What's not to love?

I also try to make something yummy for breakfast each day they're here and this week will be no exception. I found this recipe a while back on Pioneer Woman's site and I've been saving it for their next visit. My husband's family loves their apple pie and their Mountain Dew, so I think they'll love it!

I would pay my in-laws to visit. They NEVER do, the lazy bums.
