Grandpa Actuary had a business trip in our city and stayed for a short visit afterwards! The kids were thrilled to play with their Grandpa. It was lots of fun to watch him play (and teach some more about strategy and rules) backgammon, checkers, chess, mastermind, and blockus with them. The boys asked him to read to them and cuddled up to him as he read chapters from "The Wizard of Oz" that we are currently reading together. He also took us bowling, to the golf driving range (despite the cold), and out to dinner (BBQ!) andalso went to Home Depot craft day with us. Here are a few photos I snapped at the bowling alley.
