My parents were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful Lexington is. They could not get over all the flowers that were in bloom in and around the Bridle Creek apartment. My Mom loved walking around our apartment complex and stared at all the white dogwood flowers and the various shades of pink and purple flowers showing off their early spring blossoms.
We all drove to Paris, Kentucky so my parents could see all the horse farms along the way and they were amazed at how big the horse farms are. My Dad thought downtown Paris looks like one of the small streets in Paris, France.
We also drove to Grammie’s farm to celebrate Easter with Grammie and Leon. My Dad helped Jacob out with the Easter egg hunt.
They participated in David and Jacob’s baptism at our church and went to our public library. They grocery-shopped with us and cooked a lot in our home. At home, they played a lot with the boys. The first night his grandparents were here, Jacob got up at 3am and stayed up until late the following night.
I got to hang around and just talk to my parents leisurely about all sorts of things when they were here. We barely got to talk like that when I was growing up in their house because they were always busy working or doing chores. All in all, a nice visit.
I think we successfully introduced to them some aspects of American culture when they were here. I myself got a chance to indulge in all the delicious Vietnamese dishes my Mom cooked up. She is such a good cook!
