He came because he missed me, of course, but he was really hoping to see his new grandbaby while he was here. But, I guess the baby didn't realize that, so Papa had to go back home without meeting him/her.
On Friday, the day before he left, we went up to Estes Park for a family outing and to walk Serena. Grammie (Serena's mom), Papa, and I explored the town with the grandchildren while Josh and Serena went "hiking".
As you can see, we have an extra couple of kids.
I brought Meg along and Emily brought her other grandson.
The more, the merrier!
Before we all set out, though, we had a picnic. We found this lovely little spot next to a church. It even had a little creek.

Shallah and Papa have a special thing going. Before he came, she acted like she loved me. But one day, I went to get her out of her crib and she hugged her arms around her and said, "I want Papa." Oh, well. He's gone now.
