It's always fun when Grandpa comes

My dad surprised us with a visit recently. He was here just in time to help with the kids, dishes, vacuuming, even some laundry! We even managed to squeeze in some fun.

We went to Castle Island and toured an old fort there. I love this picture of Abby with my dad. She twirls her hair when she sleeps or gets upset. In this first picture she's twirling my dad's hair as he's listening to the tour.

We also let the kids play on the beach there.

Lila and Johnny found some jellyfish (the clear blob by Zack)

Thanks for the fun dad! You can surprise us anytime!



Your kids are so stinking cute. I love those pictures of your dad. That was a nice visit I am sure.

How fun! I like that primary song too. I hope you sang it to him while he was there. ;)

Emily is always telling me quotes that she claims are from primary songs. I never believe her. I guess I am wrong. I don't think they sing 'Give Said The Little Stream' or 'Popcorn Popping On The Apricot Tree' anymore. I think they are actually religious songs now instead of all those pagan songs that we got. ;)

You have no idea how much I enjoyed this post. I ADORED the pictures of Abby on Dad's shoulders. How cute! I'm shocked to see how big your kids have grown. I can't wait to see them in a few months! Love you!!!

I have to say that we also love our Grandpa Otis. He is one of Benson's very favorite people. I can't believe he cooked and cleaned and babysat.... I wish he'd come visit us sometime!
