Grandma Cleve came out for a visit at the end of January. This was her first time to meet baby Joshua and the last time spending time with all her grandchildren living in the same state (at least for a while…). We loved having her in town again! She split her time between both homes; her time with us being the bookends. Grandma Cleve came in on Friday night late and spent all day Saturday with us – we opted to have breakfast out at our favorite place, go on a Focus on the Family tour and then drive through Garden of the Gods (we were all shocked that we hadn’t taken her to Garden of the Gods on any of her previous visits!). And we finished our evening reading books and playing games.
On Sunday we went to church together, got in some snuggles and coin talk, played a game and then had Ashley and her family over for dinner. It was lovely to have everyone together! And, of course, we snapped a picture of Grandma Cleve with her four grand babies. She went home with them and spent the week there – including some time babysitting Caleb while the others checked out their new home town in Atlanta.
We joined back up on Saturday morning for breakfast and a tour of Hammond’s candy (something Mike and I did when we were dating, but hadn’t been back since!). Grandma Cleve spent the remainder of that afternoon with us before Mikey brought her back to the airport.
And, yes, that is a cricket in Micah’s sucker. He ate its head and then said he had had enough. His verdict – that was gross!
It’s always a gift to have family in town! Thanks for visiting, Grandma Cleve!!
