Grandpa Time!

We have a little tradition where Grandpa comes over once a week and he and I play Settlers together. It's really fun to just have some time together and the kids especially look forward to his visits! On the days when I tell them he is coming, they anxiously listen for any sound of a car and continually check out the front window.

Grandpa decided that he didn't want his visits to be all about our game and leave the kids feeling left out because we just sit down and play an adult game all afternoon, so he has been coming over a little early just to spend a some extra time with the kids.

Last time he came, he brought a neat new truck with a trailer for Nathan. I enjoyed watching them just play together and have a ball pushing the trucks around. :) Here are a few pictures I snapped of the play.

Thanks, Grandpa, for coming over to spend time with us. We enjoy it!

I seriously think your dad is so cool, not only because he plays settlers but because he comes once a week to hang out. That is awesome

What is settlers?

The game Settlers of Catan. It's so much fun! It's a game of strategy, where you get wealthy and buy lots of things to beat each other out. We have several of the add-ons and we just never get tired of it.

Wow. You are so lucky!! That would NEVER happen in my family. I'm so glad he does that. What a neat tradition.
