Fun Times with G&P!

Gramma and Pappy came to visit!
As the years go by, it seems that each time they visit the fellowship grows sweeter and sweeter.
The boys were absolutely giddy about their arrival for the whole month leading up to it.
When are Gramma and Pappy coming?
How many days until Pappy comes?
I can't WAIT to show Gramma and Pappy my new room!
We had lots of fun doing the Farmville thing...
 ... and the Appomattox thing... 
[A beautiful day at Little Kingdom Farm!]
[Swinging and riding and splashing in the creek!]
... and the Lynchburg thing!
[There's a Pappy in the middle of that pile!]
 We were sad the day we had to drive them to Richmond to wave goodbye!
(But we enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Cheesecake Factory, first!)
I had to remind the boys (and myself!) the wise words of Dr. Seuss,
Do not cry because it's over,
Smile because it happened!

We love you, Gramma and Pappy!
Thanks for coming!

[So we can remember]
Other things we did...
Walks around the neighborhood and around Wilck's Lake, Miller's Country Market, Green Front Furniture, Pizza and Pop Friday, Pappy to Friday School with the boys, two visits to the Weizenecker's farm, Two trips to Lynchburg for church and fellowship, Gray's birthday party with the Fletchers, visit with Riley's parents on Gray's birthday, drive through the beautiful Hampden-Sydney College campus, zillions of house projects with Dad, dinner on the porch, Pappy wrestled and steam-rollered the boys, bike practice out front, watched the blooms burst open with new life everywhere, gorgeous weather, warm sunshine, and a perfectly wonderful good time!
