My Dad flew to California late Thursday night. Caleb was pretty excited to see Granddad and Josiah did amazingly well with Granddad for not seeing him since February. Friday morning found Granddad, Caleb, Josiah and I heading to the park to play baseball. Both of my boys love being outside and had a great time. After baseball, we came home for lunch and then freshened up before going to the church. Granddad needed to check in before the Rockbridge graduation that night. We didn't stay that long at church and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon relaxing at home. That evening we all (Kerry included) went up for Rockbridge's first graduation. Of course, Josiah didn't last long, so the boys and I went outside to play until it was over. Afterwards, we enjoyed a nice reception, and then we went out for a very late dinner.

We were all pretty tired by the time we got home. I took time to get things ready for the next morning, closing day for t-ball. Caleb was excited for Granddad to be there for the last day. Instead of a game, it was a team competition. Our team won! They had a home run derby, throwing contest, relay race, and throwing to first base contest (not sure of the name of this contest) The boys were so excited to receive the trophies and medals. Josiah enjoyed all the attention from Granddaddy carrying him around.

Our time with Granddady was way too short. After the closing day, we had a couple of hours with Granddad at home before we had to take him to the airport. We are so glad that he was able to come and enjoyed our time with him. Caleb said he wished he could stay for 18 more sleeps. My thoughts exactly.

Looks like your dad's visit was fun and eventful. The boys are looking so big, especially with Caleb's new haircut.
