and the grandchildren keep growing…

Picking them up at the Cracker Barrel in South Hill

It’s Palm Sunday weekend and the beginning of Holy Week. But it’s also “David and Beks visiting their grandparents” and – as per usual – they have our full attention.

I have had essentially zero opportunity to write, so this is not a devotional/commentary post but cool pictures of the fun and cuteness. There will be ample time for writing once we get them back home.

So here they are, filling up our home with love and laughter. Rebekah and I are truly blessed among grandparents.
