Last week, we had the surprise of a unscheduled-unplanned-unbeknownst to me visit from my dad. While I know this is just how my dad rolls, as in flying by the seat of his pants, it just catches me off guard when I get that call that says he's dropping in and "See you in 2 hours."
It had been 3 years since our last visit, so it was certainly due time. As a result, Nathan needed time to warm up to his Grandpa again. However, Grandpa had some tricks up his sleeve.
Trick #1 - Playtime. Once you sit on the floor to actually play and 'spend time' with Nathan - you're IN.
Trick #2 - Donuts. Give this kid something sweet to eat and suddenly your best buddies. Reminds me of another Hull I know.
Here's Nathan showing Grandpa his newly found fishing skills.
Trick #3 - Trains. Grandpa bought Nathan some more track pieces and a new train. Pretty much sealed the deal, Nathan's friendship can be so easily bought it's not even funny.
We had a great visit with my dad. Not sure when we'll see him again, as I understand it, he's going on tour this fall.
Seriously just kidding. ;)
