I Knew It..

AJ's been asking "Where Pop and Grammy Cory go?" I've gotten a few things out of the closet in the guest room where they stayed and AJ, for some reason, has been in there with me. Each time he asks about them. It's bittersweet actually. It makes me so happy that he thinks about them and remembers them, but sad that they had to go home. We miss Pop and Grammy Cory. :)

Visit with Pop & Grammy

This weekend we had visitors! Pop and Grammy Cory came for a quick trip and we LOVED seeing them. Sadly, Grammy Cory got a stomach bug and wasn't feeling great, but we made the best of it.

Friday night we picked them up at the airport and came back the house. We laid low and just caught up on each others lives. Then, Saturday morning we all hung around the house, watched some Caillou and had breakfast. AJ truly remembers both Pop & Grammy and would ask for both of them each time they weren't in the room. "Where Pop go? Where Gammy Cory go?" It was great. It didn't take any time for them to get reacquainted.

That afternoon we headed to this little harvest festival not too far from the house. We went on a tractor ride, saw some horses, sheep, cows and other animals and then AJ got to go thru a kid-sized maize. He had a lot of fun!

Sunday we didn't do a whole lot, but we still had fun. Pop & AJ watched football together- which I think they both enjoyed- and then we did some early Christmas shopping for AJ.

Today we had to say goodbye again, and it was sad. I know tomorrow AJ's going to ask where Pop and Grammy Cory are... I am just so happy that we got to see them and AJ loved giving them both big hugs and kisses before they left.

p.s. as you can see, AJ's not too thrilled by the camera these days- he doesn't like to look at it.
