My parents came to visit and brought me some furniture from Meredith. We also celebrated an early birthday for Dad since we won’t be seeing him on the actual day. We ate at China Buffet and I made strawberry shortcake (his favorite). James said, “Happy bertday, Gan-gaddy” and drew a card with swirls, a tree, himself with Granddaddy, and a balloon tied to the tree so it “won’t fly away”. I hope Leah can get to know Dad like James has.
