Today was a pretty special day for Austin. We still have Omi staying with us, but today, Pop-Pop came for a visit too. And.....we spent a little time at one of Austin's most favorite places: our tiny local airport. It really is a pretty cool place to hang out. We love to pack a picnic lunch or dinner and eat while watching the planes take off and land. On a nice day like today, planes are literally taking off and landing every thirty seconds or so. Instant toddler gratification. Earlier this week, we watched a helicopter take off. Wow, are they loud!
We really liked this little blue beauty.
Pop-Pop look, here comes another one!
This one was also pretty cool!
I love watching the connection between these generations. I love that little children aren't busy labeling people as old, they just sense the love and respond to that. They appreciate that grandparents rarely rush them, always think it's a good day for an ice cream cone and never turn down a request to read a story, even if they've already read that book six times that morning.
To be the apple in a grandparent's eye, is a splendid way to spend an afternoon.
