Papa time!!

We went to Nana and Papa's house again this week so Celeste could be in an opera!! I'll save that for another post. But the kids had a blast as always, and they got to spend some quality time with Papa. Here are a few pics from their trip to the park and some quotes about grandparents...

The best baby-sitters, of course, are the baby's grandparents. You feel completely comfortable entrusting your baby to them for long periods, which is why most grandparents flee to Florida. ~Dave Barry
An hour with your grandchildren can make you feel young again. Anything longer than that, and you start to age quickly. ~Gene Perret A grandparent is a parent who has a second chance.-- Author Unknown

I don't intentionally spoil my grandkids. It's just that correcting them often takes more energy than I have left. ~Gene Perret
Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children. ~Alex Haley The Maroon

These kids are so fortunate to have such a brilliant Papa. He was an elementary and jr. high school teacher for over 15 years, he earned a Ph.D in school psychology, and now works as a school psychologist, so needless to say, he has some experience interacting with children. He always comes up with creative ideas to keep them happy, and he always knows how to help me out with discipline tips. It's like having my very own supernanny (or should I say supermanny?) around.
He is a humble, tender-hearted man, and a loving father and grandfather. I am so grateful that he is such an important part of our lives. He is a tremendous blessing to me, and to my children.


We love you Papa! Till next time... (unless you flee to Florida! ;))
