We roped my parents into coming back down for another visit for Bennett’s baptism. My dad does not do well in the heat and for that reason we always have him come out in February. But out of love he was willing to come visit Arizona in May. We had our coolest May ever and he still complained about the heat – we’re going to stick with February visits for him:)
We packed a lot in a short amount of time. The were able to participate in Bennett’s baptism.
They were able to see Hunter in his first tournament game for flag football. (sadly a loss after 5 overtimes!)
They got to see Cannon graduate from preschool and win his awards. This was their first preschool program…ever. It was a good to one to start with!
They got to experience the elementary school lunch room – something every parent blocks out, but as grandparents, they were willing to go back! We had fun watching the kids with their friends during lunch recess.
My dad took the two older boys to a Phoenix Rising soccer game and despite their late night return (on a school night) it might have been the highlight of the week for all of them.
We played a lot of games. And despite a lack of photos of Hallie, she really was present during the week. She just didn’t have any main events we were attending!
And our traditional photos with the grandparents…
My dad managed to help me with a few projects and my mom and I were able to run some errands. They helped prepare the dinner after the baptism and we fit in a couple games of cornhole.
It’s been years since they’ve visited together and it was a nice treat to have them together. My kids weren’t sure what to do with the attention from both of them for the week!
