Grandma and Grandpa Visit!

We were lucky enough to have a visit from Grandma Lin and Grandpa Joe a few weeks ago.  It is such a far trip from Hawaii.  We know how hard it is for them both to leave their businesses and we appreciate it so much!
On top of their visits, Simon still knows them very well from Skype.  A few weeks before they came, the door on our armoire broke.  I mentioned off-hand that maybe Grandpa could fix it.  Needless to say, Simon did not forget that and he had a whole list of things that Grandpa could fix.  We put him to work on his vacation and we are so thankful for it.
Before they arrived, Grandma and Grandpa sent a huge package for Simon.  We hid to box until they got here because we knew it would be too tempting.  When they arrived, Simon was so excited to open it.  It is a custom made barn by Grandpa Joe.  The craftsmanship is really unbelievable.  The doors open and the windows are actual plexi-glass.  It is labeled "Knight Farms" and there is a special plaque which reads "Made by Grandpa Joe 2012".  Also, Grandma has been busy collecting animals to go inside the barn (in actual pens too!)  There are horses, pigs, sheep, a farmer and his wife and a child plus many more.  Simon's favorite seems to be the black and white cat because it looks like Zoe.  It is such a special gift and we will treasure it always!

They even got to see his gymnastics class.  He loves that trampoline
We love you Grandma Lin and Grandpa Joe and are so thankful for everything you do for us!
