Grandpa's Visit!!

The day after Father's Day my dad came out to Rock Springs for business. His new company Sport Sites provides new software for Rec Centers and City Sports leagues and stuff and he had an appointment with the Rock Springs Rec Center in the morning so we met up with him for lunch when he was done!

The kids were so excited! Payson called him a couple of times the night before to tell him where she wanted to go to lunch and to ask if he would take her on a motorcycle ride (he was bringing his bike out). They went to bed so easy that night with the promise that we would be meeting up with Grandpa right after swim lessons!!

So we took Grandpa to Bonsai (a super yummy Asian place out here) and enjoyed way too much delicious food. We ordered way too many rolls by accident. But everything was good and the kids loved hanging out with Grandpa. And I had a blast chillin with my Daddy!

Of course, after lunch the kids had to go for motorcycle rides! Jack jumped on without hesitation which surprised me because as a baby he would cry whenever it would start. And when he got a little bigger he would run from it whenever it was on. :) But he LOVED the ride!! Which is great because he is in a family of bikers!

Halfway through our lunch Payson whispered in my ear, "I don't want to go on the motorcycle anymore." Which surprised me because her whole life she has LOVED the motorcycle! So Grandpa coaxed her. First she was just sitting with the bike off. Then she tried on the helmet. Then he turned the bike on. And finally he climbed on with her and she was okay going for a short ride. :) I think she realized that she still loves the bike. She just seems to get a little uncomfortable with new things lately. Funny girl.

Anyway, it's so fun to have family come out and visit us! We still see them pretty often, but it's not the same as living just down the street like we used to. We miss them and love them and LOVED having Grandpa out for a lunch visit! Hopefully everyone else will make it out later this summer for some time at the Lake or a river day!!
