10 on Tuesday -Papa's Visit

1. We have been lucky enough to have papa (Rick's dad) visiting for the past week. It only took a few minutes for Johnnie & Joey to settle in & feel comfortable. I guess a Spiderman book & an animated papa make for a good time.2. Johnnie even got involved & turned the pages for him.3. Spending time with papa. It looks like the boys were explaining how we play in the Bolander household. He better be careful...they can tire one out pretty easily.4. With each passing moment they spent together Johnnie adored his papa more & more. Wanting to sit next to him on the couch, giggling with him & then tonight making sure papa sat next to him at the dining room table for his last dinner here. Johnnie actually put the plates on the table & when I tried to sit next to him he told me "No mama, that's papa's seat. You sit over there (across the table.)5. Jimmy has pretty much been a mama's boy for the last 6 weeks with teething & being sick. So he hasn't been overly happy letting anyone but me hold him. But last night we did manage to capture some smiles with papa & his youngest grandson.6. 4 of the Bolander boys hanging out watching Monday night football last night. Like I said Jimmy is a mama's boy so he is actually down near my feet.7. So after that photo I captured Jimmy's 38 week photo. He like his older brothers loves to push this ball around the house.8. And Joey has been showing him how to push this car around the house.9. Thanks for spending time with us. We have really missed you & can't wait to see you again.10. Goodbye Papa until next time!

Looks like everyone had a great time with Papa! So important for the boys to get to know all of us 'faraway' grandparents. Can't wait to get out there in February to see all those little rascals again...and for Grampa Joe to meet Jimmy.

Thanks to Rick and Cathy for their love and hospitality. Thanks and love to the Boys for their curiosity, acceptance and all the things that make grandparents love them.
