Family Photo Album: L's Visit to Cincy
Our grandson L came with his dad to visit for a long weekend last week, and we had a special time. L’s sister V (also 4) stayed home in New Orleans with their mom, so it was the first time we had a visit by L on his own. Here’s some of the visual record.
L was nervous about being in a new situation at first, but, with a little tickling from dad, it didn't take long to feel at home.
L and the sheepdogs were curious about one another.
On Friday we went to the Museum Center at Union Terminal. Here's L and Grandpa.
The dinosaur exhibit was fantastic, and L loved the Omnimax movie about dinosaurs too.
J and L did authentic dinosaur imitations afterwards.
We got our strength back with four-ways at Camp Washington Chili.
J read some Spiderman stories to L before bedtime.
On Saturday we went to the zoo.
L's favorite was the Kimodo Dragon.
He also thought the gorilla statue was good.
By the end of the zoo outing L was a little tired.
So we got our strength back with some four-ways at Skyline Chili.
J went to a wedding on Saturday evening. We were nervous about dad going off at first, but L and his grandparents had a great time playing with toys and watching "Superman II" on TV.
L had cherry-rasberry pie and ice cream for breakfast on Sunday.
Then we took a trip to the Art Museum where the Mummy was a hit.
At 5:30 it was time for goodbyes at the Dayton Airport. And off they went.
There were lots of other good times that we didn't capture on camera: going to see "Man of Steel" at the Kenwood Cinemas, an indoor picnic with Donna, ice cream at Graeter's, playing with 12-year-old Calvin at Jennifer's house, taking a walk on Ludlow Ave., L going with J to the post-wedding brunch, etc. Our four days went by much too quickly, and Katja and I were quiet and sad on our way home from the airport. But now we're looking forward to next time.
