Grandpa Al Visits

We were so lucky to get a visit from far away Grandpa Al. Since he lives in Virginia and we are all the way in Washington state we don't get to see each other that often. It was the perfect timing--right after the rush of Christmas was over. We didn't go anywhere spectacular but just enjoyed being together at home while it continued to be yucky and rainy outside. Grandpa Al is really good at playing games with the kids and I could tell that the kids really enjoyed having him here. The trip was short but we were grateful to get him for a few days anyways. The kids favorite game to play with Grandpa was the tickle game. For some reason the kids just love to be tickled and especially by Grandpa Al. Some of my favorite moments while Grandpa was here was seeing the kids at random times just snuggling and hugging him. It really warmed my heart to see how much they love him. I really appreciate the time he took with each of the kids to talk with them and listen to their stories. Hopefully it won't be too long before we can go and visit Grandpa at his house.
