I figured I should finish writing about my dad’s visit two months ago before I move on to my mom’s visit two weeks ago.
My dad is a good sport. He agrees to come out and help me with projects large and small. This year my highest priority was the bookshelf closet doors. Everything else he helped with was icing on the cake. The light fixtures that needed replacing. The sink that wouldn’t drain. The two bathroom fans that needed to be rebuilt. The fence that needed new wood planks.
We also started another large project – Hunter and Bennett’s closet build out which required building lots of drawers. Just an hour before he was leaving for the airport we were installing in their closet. (Still have a little more to do before it’s finished).
This trip and sadly most of his trips are a lot of work, little play. Luckily, Sunday is a day of rest from all projects and we were able to play games and take the kids to the temple visitor’s center.
And somehow amidst loud children, my dad still has the ability to sleep anywhere, through just about anything. My kids thought this was pretty funny. He works so hard every time he comes to visit, I’m sure he loves returning home to rest!. Cannon especially loved having him around, wrestling, eating lunch with him and bringing the same book over and over again for him to read. We love his help and we love his visits.
