The Grand H's Come to Town!

We just wrapped up a lovely visit with Dad, Mary Ellen, and Daniel.  After hitting up Yellowstone for a couple of days, Dad and M.E. joined us in Pinedale for a week.  Daniel managed to sneak away from school to join us for the last few days of the visit. We squeezed a lot of fun into a busy week.  Besides doing our part to support the local Pinedale economy (shopping and eating), we played at the park, played at home, enjoyed the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, celebrated the 4th in Jackson, soaked up sun on the beach, and hiked.  It was a great, relaxing visit.  I think everyone really enjoyed the time together.  I know Isaac was in HEAVEN having his grandparents and Uncle Dan here to spoil him.  He had so much fun playing with them!!

Thanks for making the long trip out and for a wonderful week!!

Stories with Grandma-Me
Swinging--Isaac's favorite park past-time
He insisted on pushing
What do you know--swinging again
He was really into sporting his cap and boots for Gramps and Grandma-Me (appropriate since both were gifts from them)
Playing cars with Grandma-Me

(Isaac refuses to say "one" when he counts.)

Grandma-Me made play dough for Isaac, and then there was a lot of play dough action, like two-hour sittings kind of action.

Serious concentration

On the 4th, we headed to Jackson to pick up Daniel and to enjoy the holiday in the big city.  Matt, Daniel, and I even got to stay in Jackson that night for the free (Old Crow Medicine Show!!) concert while the grandparents took Isaac back home.  That was sweet for us, and they got to watch fireworks out the window with Isaac.  Win win.  

Isaac loved the 4th of July festivities in Teton Village which included playing in the water and dancing to live music.

Notice how Isaac so bravely skirts the edge of water.
