A tale of two grandpas

So last night, Grandpa Rinaldo was partying like a rockstar with his friends and much of his family. He's celebrating the passing of a milestone: He is becoming a sexagenarian -- watch out, Lucia!

We hadn't gotten word from the party, but it was basically expected to start around 9 p.m. and go until, er, the morning. Not the worst way to celebrate, eh?

Meanwhile, Grandpa John came by to visit Lil' Genghis -- and what a visit it was! She was so excited she just didn't want to nap. Ever. The regular one- or two-hour naps, if they happened, were maybe 30 minutes. Instead, she kept waking up to the smiling face and many songs and tons of games of Grandpa John. She couldn't get enough of him, and he couldn't get enough of her, until he was pretty much ready to collapse. Here's to hoping he sleeps well!

Grandpa John was also visiting so mom and dad could get serious about packing to move to the new place. We made pretty good progress and don't think we're going to do the last minute panic thing ... which always seems to happen, anyway. But in a week Isabella will be living in a safe, modern, clean home ... and she'll join us in hoping that Grandpa John returns really, really soon! And maybe the next visit can be even more fun, with time for more photos. =)

That's our bad way of saying we haven't gotten many good photos yet, but this one'll warm everyone's heart:

Thanks, Grandpa John!

Edit: Aunt Melissa pointed out that the photo disappeared. In a way, it was Uncle Rodrigo's fault. Really. So it's back. Sorry, Grandpa John!

  • ...and yeah, the missing pic is my fault. My fault for not warning Suze about getting married to this guy, 4 years ago...
