Visiting With Granddaddy & Grandma

Last week, our grandparents drove the 3+ hour trip from their home in NC for a very short visit at our new farm. They blessed us with a huge meal of BBQ, ham, coleslaw, potato salad, homemade chocolate cake, and a cooler filled with sodas! They even brought paper plates, plastic silverware, and napkins, so we had very minimal clean up afterwards. The food lasted for several meals and we enjoyed it so much. We discussed Granddaddy and Grandma's upcoming road trip across the country and their recent visit to D.C. for the big rally at Capitol Hill on September 12.
In early 2007, Granddaddy and Grandma invited us over to their house for several afternoons to learn more about our family's history and Granddaddy's life. I wrote about it here. Because of Granddaddy's patriotism and the many stories he shared from his time serving in the Army, he has instilled such a love for our country in our hearts. We are so thankful for his willingness to share his life experiences with us.
