This week was the week of visiting the Great Grandparents. We try to visit them every month, but typically we do not visit them all in the same week. Lucky kiddos!

On Tuesday, we visited Grandma Jones (aka Marci) with Aunt Nikki before Aunt Nikki moved to Colorado. Then, we got to see Grandma and Grandpa Austin and Grandma Pat at Boppa Bob's retirement party on Thursday night. Friday morning, we visited with Grandma Pat and Bailey. The girls are now warming up to Doggy Bailey after frequent visits (and now Alivia wants a dog!) but Asher still is not a fan. Then today, we went to Grandma and Grandpa Austins in Council Bluffs with Daddy. At the last minute, we treated the kiddos to lunch at Christy Creme (an icecream place in Council Bluffs that Chris really likes).

During our visits the kids play with their fun toys, have special snacks, and we bring the Grandparents home made treats, too. We learn a lot about our Grandparents through our visits. I want our kids to make lots of memories with the Grandparents, and I want to be able to retell the stories they tell us. The kids are really warming up to their Great Grandparents after our frequent visits and look forward to seeing them again soon.
