After my parents left town (Memorial Day) Chad's parents rolled in to meet Jack and to spend time with all of us. Of course they did things like keep my kitchen clean and prepare meals, and build steps and fix drawers and doors, but the thing they did the best was spoil our boys!

If Jack needed held, he was held.
If Max needed to play golf outside, they'd go watch.
If Gabe needed someone to talk to or show his latest creations to, they were available.

They played games, and bought everyone treats. They also provided lots of ice cream, wedging them into a high place in Max's mind forever :) Max still wants to look outside every morning hoping to see Grandpa's motorcycle. Not only does Max love motorcycles and therefore was PUMPED to have Grandpa's in our driveway, BUT it also had an american flag on it which is another one of Max's favorite things.

Gabe loves any time he gets with them too- he loves riding around town, and shopping with them... mostly because he can talk them into a thing or two :) And he is trying to plan a trip out to Texas ALONE this fall during his break, because he wants to spend a week with them alone. Apparently, the rest of us get in his way and cramp his style.

These boys know a good thing when they see one, and that's Grandma and Grandpa! (And before long, Jack will know too!)
