Visiting my grandparents

This weekend I was able to visit my grandparents. We had such a good time! I don't get to see them that often, so it was a special time. Addy warmed right up to them! She even started calling them 'Great grandpa" and "Great Grandma".

My brother and I used to stay with my grandparents 2 weeks out of the summer. I understand now why my parents did that. :) My grandma had a garden behind her house and I always remember picking raspberries... mmm they were so good.  My grandparents are both awesome examples of Christ. I also remember when I would get up early at their house, I would hear them talking in the kitchen so I would go up there and they would be reading the Bible and praying, so I would sit with them. I would kind of get bored because it seemed like they prayed forever. But I understand now that they are prayer warriors. They are such a blessing to me.

Here is Grandpa playing the Harmonica for Addy. She wasn't sure what to think of it. He played "Jesus loves me".

We also got to see my nephew, Anthony's last soccer game. Shane and Addy had fun rooting for him!:)

Here's Anthony, the star player!!

With grandpa!! :)

It was a fun weekend, and had fun spending time with family.


  1. Looks like you had a blast this weekend! Loved seeing your pictures! Love your grandparents!...not to mention your whole family!:)

  2. Thanks for this post Melissa. Isn't it amazing how your perspective changes as you get older. I'm glad that you and Addy were able to come along with us. I know Grandpa and Grandma enjoyed having you both there. I was so tickled to see how Addy warmed up to both of them so fast. I think she knows who family is!!
