Meeting Grandpa

Last week, Kelly's Dad and step-mom Liz
Made a trip from Las Vegas to spend time with friends and family.

It was a special day for Violet,
as this was her first time meeting her Grandpa Jewkes.
Violet has been known to fuss when she's held by an unfamilar face.
That's why is was so sweet when she cuddled deep into Grandpa's shoulder,
and slept that way for the next two hours.
It was like she's known him forever.
Pearl and Liz played with a wooden tic-tac-toe set.
{I later found all of the pieces in Pearl's rain boot.  Luckily it was on our way out the door.}
Then they shook every table-top decoration to see which one made noises.
{Pearl's idea-- although Liz was very kind to go along with it.}
We talked a lot about Kelly's Grandpa--
Stories from the war, finding his way back from South Africa,
and finally marrying his sweetheart 10 days after his proposal .
He was quite an amazing man.

It was so good to see them.
Pearl keeps talking about Grandpa and Liz.
We've made plans to make our way down to Las Vegas very soon.

Violet came home smelling just like her Grandpop's cologne.
So cute.
