Pop-Pop, Omi and the planes

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.

    It seems the whole family had a wonderful day. And yes, I think Austin loves to be the center of the Universe and that everybody takes care of him....oh, why cant we all be two years old? ha
