Papa Jack's birthday

Last Friday when I picked Dashiell up from his Nana and Grandpa's house, Nina and Papa Jack (Dash's great-grandparents) were there, too, hanging out with our guy in the back yard.  Earlier in the week it was Papa Jack's birthday, so after a yummy pizza dinner we all shared a small cake to celebrate!  Dashiell sat with Papa Jack while we all sang happy birthday, and helped him blow out the candles, too. 

He also tested the frosting for us, just to make sure it was okay.  Very thoughtful of him.

I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but I think it's so special that Dashiell has such a close relationship with his great-grandparents.  How many of us can say claim the same kind of relationship with our own great-grandparents?  I didn't know mine at all!  Dashiell is one lucky kid--he gets to see his usually at least once a week, if not more.  And it's obvious how much he loves them and loves spending time with them--his face lights up when they're around, and he loves giving them hugs and kisses.  I am so thankful for Nina and Papa Jack and the joy they bring to everyone, especially my little guy!

Happy Belated Birthday Papa Jack!

My kids are blessed with great-grandparents too. I knew two of my great-grandmothers and it was so special! Lucky Dash!

Rachel had two Great-Grandmas and one Great-Grandpa living until January when my Grandpa passed away. (he was 95!) I love that they are getting a chance to meet her:)...we do not see them often due to distance but when we do, it's really nice. They LOVE getting my picture packets:). Dash's Papa Jack looks so proud:)...Lori
