My Grandparents Visit

Finally the day has come. Over 2 years ago I have seen my family. Finally I get to hold them and cherish them. Not many people have the ability to revert me back to my childhood days but my grandparents folks are the ones who can do it! This trip was way too short but sweet.

My grandparents came here on Friday and I was so excited to finally see them one more time. I cleaned the house like a maniac and waited very impatiently watching every flight in the sky. I finally saw the flight status change and my grandparents have arrived in COS!

We spent the first day at the hotel to let them rest. We brought them a very healthy dinner of Burritos. We sat around while Grandpa played with the kids and I felt a bit of sadness remembering that this was only short lived.

The following day we went to IHOP for dinner. I had a bacon & egg cheese omelette and I was in heaven. My grandparents spoil me rotten. Afterwards we decided to show my grandparents the beauty of Colorado. Up the mountains we went. Through hollowed out Mountains and past 7 falls. Down the mountains to Helen Hunt Falls. We stopped for pictures of course. Then out to 11 mile resevoir. More pictures. By now my grandpa is exhausted. And quite frankly so were we.

The next day my grandparents wanted to treat us to Red Lobster. It has been over 8 years since we even attempted to eat here. We were pleasantly surprised by the food and how well behaved my little man did. I am so blessed for great family and food. What made me laugh most is Lil Ro kept calling the Live Lobsters Mr. Krabs.

Following morning it is time for them to go back already. My heart is breaking and I am holding back tears. Inside the airport we go to say our goodbyes. We sit by a fireplace and have some smoothies. Finally we have to let them go. As I watch them get to security checkpoint my heart is breaking and I am holding back tears. I fear this could be the last time I see grandpa. I holler at him See you in May! He nods his head and goes into terminal.

This was a wonderful visit and I pray we do get to see him then. i pray he can watch his best grandson-in-law graduate next year. I love them more each day and I am so glad we had that time together. Even now looking back it still seems like a dream.
