Pizza Party

We were only in Lethbridge for 2 days this week and of course we wanted to visit with Mike's family. We only see those three grandkids 4 or 5 times a year and we want to make sure they know who we are, since they're surrounded by their 'other' family down there. It wasn't easy to do this time because of Mike and Avril's work schedule but we did manage to all gather at Mike's work for a pizza supper. The kids had put in a full day by then and this is how we were greeted by the boys:

Alex and Kenny

They stumbled into foyer and collapsed on the chairs, sound asleep before we could even say hi to them.

Taking advantage of her big brothers' inactivity, Hannah jumped right in and started eating, making a mess of herself in the process.  She's only 16 months old so that's all right.

The boys woke up in good spirits and gave each other a hug before sitting down to pizza, chicken wings and curly fries, while Mike and Avril supervised.

Then time for another group shot, hamming it up for Grammie and Papa, before we had to call it a day.

It sure is fun watching these little guys grow up and develop such strong personalities.  Love you kids.

It's hard not seeing them often, isn't it? I take comfort in the fact that when I was growing up one of my grandmothers' lived in our town and the other didn't. I found them equally special and loved them both dearly!

Good for you making all that effort to see your little blessings!

What beautiful children! So glad you got to visit and nothing is better than a good old pizza party.

They certainly are real little cuties! It's a shame that you don't live so close to them, but I think you are quite right in making the effort to get to see them as often as you possibly can. They grow away so quickly!

Hannah was filthy to start with. We just added to the mess.

Sounds like you had fun! I had a Grandmother who I only saw once or twice a year (but we corresponded regularly) and she still remains someone so dear in my heart and I think of her so often.
