The Greats

The purpose for our trip to Virginia {besides visiting my parents, of course} was to introduce the little guy to my mom's parents, his great-grandparents, also known as Nana and Tata!  It was a special experience to have them get to hold their great-grandson, and the smiles were abundant.

Now, these may not be the best quality photographs {I even had to use the dreaded flash!}, but the moments they captured are unforgettable.  Although it may not be too uncommon, I think it is a special opportunity for a four-generation reunion.  Growing up I was very close to my grandparents, and I'm so thankful my baby gets to meet them.

Just look at that smile, I think everyone was enjoying themselves.  I also got a chance to do some sewing, cooking, and visiting without having to worry that the little one needed to be held or was unhappy for any reason.  In fact, I was constantly getting offers to hold him for me, even if I didn't need to do anything.

One thing my grandpa was excited to have was a photo of himself with both grandson's, mine and my sister's little boys.  And we couldn't resist dressing them in these adorable matching short overalls either...!  How cute are they?

I have to say that I consider myself very blessed to have such a wonderful family, and I'm so thankful to have my sweet little guy know and love all his grandparents and some great-grandparents too {and we're making a trip to Washington later this year to spend time with more grandparents and great-grandparents!}.  What a wonderful, blissful life we live.

    I saw you said the 'dreaded flash', have you ever checked out a lightscoop? Not sure what camera you have, but its my lifesaver!
