Grandparents' Day

Did you know that today is Grandparents' Day?  Don't worry, neither did I...that is, until I noticed it on our calendar as a national holiday.  (Thank goodness for those pre-printed holiday reminders.)  So I called my grandparents and invited them over for dinner.  They didn't know it was Grandparents' Day either, but they were delighted to join us for a feast in their honor.

Grandma is holding the ginormous stuffed dog that they gave Noah for Christmas.  It is as big as her!
Noah loves burying his face in it, and Grammy often gets down on the ground with him and does it too. :)
We spent last weekend with my grandparents in Vail, Colorado.  They have a time-share there, and my whole family joined them for the holiday weekend.  These pictures capture why I love these two old people so much:

*We went to the Farmers' Market, and it started to rain a little.  Granny didn't want to get her perm wet, so she wore a plastic grocery sack from one of the vendors on her head.  So stinkin' cute.

*Grampy is always up for fun with his great grandkids.  At 83 years old, he's not afraid of the teeter-totter!

Or of holding a sweet baby girl...

They are the best.  We are so lucky to have them.


  1. Hhahah I laughed out loud when I read that you invited them over and they didn't know it was grandparents day. That is great! Man they are cute grandparents! You have always been so thoughtful Rach. Miss you!

    P.S. I think Noah just told me that he really wants to visit his Aunt Tiff.

  2. I love those two cuties! I should have gotten a picture doing the penny slots with them at Blackhawk for you to post. :)

  3. It's true! They really are the GREATEST!


I love hearing from you!! Thanks for the comment!
