A Visit with Grandpa (Alan's Dad)

Today we are wrapping up a two week visit with Alan's dad. Alan and Lexi are taking Grandpa to the airport in Dallas, Texas today, and he is flying home to Georgia. Alan and his dad had a great visit. His dad went with Alan through the week while he worked. While they were at home they talked a lot, did crossword puzzles and just generally caught up on the happenings.
It was a great visit and we will see ya next time!!!

Grandpa looks like an angel with that wreath "halo" behind his head! I'm glad that it was a good visit. Family is so important.

Hi Darlene, Sounds like it was such a nice visit--we treasure the times that we can have my parents or Len's mom with us. She arrived yesterday for a weeklong Thanksgiving visit. My kids come home on Tuesday night--I can't wait!

That must have been so nice to have your FIL visit with you. It's nice that Lexi got to spend time with her grandfather as well. I hope he has a safe trip home.

take care,
Dawn

I had to run back and look at your profile, I thought you might be in Texas when I read about going to the airport in Dallas! When I read it, I remembered you were in Oklahoma!
Hope you had a good visit with Grandpa.

Darlene, thank you for sharing your visit with your dh's dad. Nothing could be better for them both. Time rushes by and the next thing you know it's too late. I miss my dad so much.

I fixed my problem. My dh cleared the cache and it worked. It was my computer having the problem. thank goodness, because I lost so many visits yesterday. I'm happy now!!!

Hugs, Jeanne

Hi Darlene
Lovely lovely that you were all able to have a nice visit today. That was a nice long one. I'm not sure how far he has travelled but its sooo good to have these visits especially when you don't get together too often because of distance.
Very lovely pictures.
Thank you for sharing.

Hi Darlene:
Thats so nice that your F.I.L. could visit with you and your family. You don't know how much you can miss them until they are gone. I sure miss my dad.
Hope he had a good flight back to Georgia.
