When it comes to grandparents...

...We think we have some of the best!! Seriously, I feel so blessed that my boys have not one, but two wonderful sets of grandparents who love them, miss them when we're apart, and spoil them silly!! This week we have been lucky enough to have Grandpa and Grandma Marchant visit us. You would have thought it was Christmas when they arrived, the amount of toys, games, and clothes they brought with them! The boys were, of course, in heaven!
It was a pretty short visit, but we packed in tons of fun! On Tuesday, the boys and I went with G&G Marchant downtown. We visited the mint and went to Hammond's Candy Factory again. The boys were a bit wiggly during the tour, but the lollipops at the end made it all worth it!

On Wednesday, Adam took the day off of work and we headed down to the Springs, where we toured the Air Force Academy. It's such a peaceful, beautiful campus.

We thought it was awesome that this airplane had Ty's name on it!

Grandpa demonstrated how to launch Ty's new airplane!
On our way out, we saw a practice drop from an airplane. There were probably 8-10 soldiers that parachuted out of the airplane. It was super cool!
We also made a brief visit to the Garden of the Gods. We didn't last too long before the boys wore out and the rain hit.

And we had a nice picnic lunch, too.
This morning, Adam and I were able to do a session at the Denver Temple with G&G Marchant before they left to drive home. We feel so fortunate that we were able to have this time together, and we already miss them!

Looks like you had a great time! And that reminds me we need to go to Hammonds again! I love that place.
