Papa and Lao Lao came to visit for a few days! Ting Ting knew they were coming, but I didn't tell her that they were going to be here early enough to pick her up at day care, so that was a great surprise.
This photo doesn't have all of Lao Lao's head in it, but I still like the expressions.
Ting Ting was "sooooo happy" to see her grandparents and introduce them to her teacher and some of her friends.
They also looked at her photo book to see some of the things she has done and what she has learned since she moved to the 2-year-old class.
We had a great time visiting for three days (well, at least when we weren't watching the Vandy game). Dr. Ting Ting checked out both Papa and Lao Lao several times, so we know they're in good health. Lao Lao and Ting Ting read books together and also "hid" from the rest of us over and over (and over and over). Papa would "color" with Ting Ting and help her trace her hands (over and over). And while she napped, the rest of us got some things done in preparation for a very special occasion coming up soon -- Papa and Lao Lao's 50th wedding anniversary!
