Opa's coming in two days!

When I asked "J" to make a silly face, that is what he did. Not so silly, just cute as can be.

Hubby's Dad lives in Vancouver. We only get to see him once a year, twice if something fun comes up. Opa is German, born in Germany and immigrated to Canada when he was 11. He never taught Hubby how to speak German, but it is great to hear him speak it. We are getting ready here because Thursday is arrival day. I bring in all his favorite foods, drinks, pillows anything he asks for. I turn the heat down and buy the good coffee. We have been counting down his arrival on our kitchen chalk board for 65 days. If Opa would come for longer we would build him an Opa suite in our basement. I love this man. I am only sorry he decided to retire in Vancouver. Maybe this year I can convince him to move back... probobly not, but maybe I can convince him to come back before the snow flies in the fall.

That's a great pic - new camera??

What fun that you are all so excited and looking forward to a special visit. Sadly, I am more like SCM, where my FIL and I seem to tolerate each other.

It's nice when family visits and it's a good lesson for your son that you love your father in law so much. Counting down 65 days! I think J is going to cherish his memories of his Opa.
