Rest of Grandpa’s visit.

Simon and I just took grandpa to the airport today, and he is on his way back to Illinois.  We had a really nice, low-key visit with lots of time for cuddles and playing with Grandpa.

Easter Monday we stayed around the house – got a couple of projects done and I cooked a stew.  Just took it easy.

On Tuesday it was back to work for Steve, and Simon had his first immunizations (jabs) in the morning.  He took them like a champ with only a few seconds of screaming.  He was extra sleepy the rest of the day and was running a bit of a temperature.  But, he was agreeable enough for a short trip into Henley town for lunch and some shopping.  Grandpa had a lot of orders for Chocolate for friends and family back in the States, and bought about 10 pounds at Waitrose.  I didn’t take any pictures in Henley, but my dad did so I’ll get those later.

Tuesday night after Simon’s bottle, we went up to the Bottle and Glass pub for a dinner out (the only one grandpa got this trip).  It was nice and we had a warm room all to ourselves.  Simon was, as always, a great little boy and let us eat our dinner.  He sat in his seat the whole time – talking up a storm with us.


Wednesday Simon had one last play time with Grandpa after his morning bottle then we took Grandpa to Heathrow.  Grandpa knows Grandma Beckie and Great-Grandma Johnson love Daffodils so he wanted to stop up at the top of the road for a few pictures.



Thanks for coming to see us Grandpa!  We’ll see you again in June.
