Grandparents’ Love

Sean’s parents, Mark and Chris, are wonderful grandparents.  We are blessed to live so close to both sets of grandparents and the boys can have such a great relationship with them.  Every Sunday we enjoy dinner at one of the grandparents’ homes.  (These pictures were taking last Sunday).  Because Mark is retired now, we’ve “hired” him as our lawn serviceman.  So, every other week the boys get a thrill from hearing Pop’s truck pull up, and then seeing the box of Krispy Kreme donuts he’s carrying.  Rylan sits on the drive way eating the frosting off one donut after another, and then once he gets his fill, he follows Pop from front to back, front to back, as he does a fine job caring for our lawn.  Colton has a little inside joke with Pop which is like a secret language Colton created and he refers to Pop as “boo-ga-pet”. I have no idea where it came from.  A couple of times a week, Chris treats me to a session at the gym while she watches Brayden, who is still too young to go into the Kids’ Club babysitting area with Colton and Rylan.  Usually she will take Brayden after her workout on some errands, or she’ll sit in the chairs in the front and feed him his bottle.  Her and Brayden have really bonded during this time.  I certainly am spoiled to have so many fantastic “sitters” close-by.  And I know the boys’ lives are so much more enriched because of the precious experiences they have shared with their grandparents already and will continue to share.
Pin It!

There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. "
