Nana & Tata meet Ammon and entertain the new big sis

Nana and Tata came to visit! They came for several days to meet their new little grandson and help out with the house and the kiddos. It was so fun to see their excitement in meeting their son's first son:) This little boy is so lucky to be so loved. While they were here, they also cooked and cooked and cooked to make sure we had meals not only for the week they were here but for weeks later too! They are very giving people and I really appreciated everything they did while they were here.

Meeting Tata & Nana for the first time
I think Nana is in love :)
The handsome men strike a pose.
While they were here and the older girls were in school, Joey took a day off of work and took them to downtown McKinney and to a nearby splashpad with Cali. Cali needed out of the house to have some fun and Joe and Cyndi had never seen our city's downtown historical district. It sounded like it was a fun time! And it gave me some quiet time, just me and the baby, which was nice too.

Our favorite little candyshop, The Mom and Popcorn Co. Cali is CRAZY about candy so this is probably her favorite store in the world:)

This is where it sounds like Cali had the most fun. Nana & Tata really made it fun for her as you can see. . .
Joe even got soaking wet, wearing all of his clothes. Now thats a Grandfather's love:) He chased her round and round.
Ahh, to be 3 again.

We also celebrated Joe's birthday while they were here. With strawberry shortcake of course! Hope you enjoyed it Joe!

Thanks again for all you guys did while you were here. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful family. And our kids are the luckiest to have amazing grandparents!

Yup Tata had the best birthday ever. How did you know I love strawberry shortcake ymm ymmmm. Birthdays are real fun. Good thing we didn't have enough candles that would have set off the fire alarms.

P.S. The cake was "dolicise" secret word.

Oh just realized these are all on the same. Ok so it was fun and great meeting our newest grandson. Fun day at the park with Cali it was perfect weather to get drenched and with such a cutie too. The downtown was great shopping lots of yummy treats not just candy all the Texas style jams and jellies yeah that's what I'm talking about. They candy store was like stepping back in time. Lots lotsa lotsa candy it sure helped soothed the long drive from Dallas to California. Crazy nostalgic candies.

P.S. I didn't find any "hociongs" (secret word) though darn it.
