I'm So Glad When Grandpa Comes...

I'm so glad when grandpa comes, when grandpa comes...Hooray!
He always says the kindest things and in the kindest way.
He has a wrinkly, twinkly smile,
He's jolly all the day.
It's always fun for everyone when Grandpa comes!
I love, love this sweet photo of my dad with Ellie and Andrew. Every time I see that animated expression on his face as he reads a book to two of his grandkids, I can't help but reminisce back to when I was a little girl and would snuggle up on his lap for a book or a tickle. I even love that Andrew couldn't care less about the book...he's way more interested in whatever electronic device that is.

We miss you Grandpa and Grandma...come visit us soon!

I really like this picture. I am pretty sure that Andrew is playing with my old Ipod. I think that it was probably inoperative by this point in time. By the way, Happy Birthday to Ellie!!!!

That Grandpa face is great! Isn't it fun to see our parents act goofy with our kids? A wonderful moment captured forever!

That's a great picture of Pops. I love that Andrew even then was interested in the electronics device rather than the book. That's so Andrew! He has at least developed a liking of books now too. (o:

Your dad is the greatest!!! I still remember meeting him for the first time when we moved to MN, and how welcomed I felt with his generous smile!
