What the North Wind Brought with it

On Friday we experienced a cold front. Thursday it was a record 87 degrees and then Friday the bottom dropped out by 25 degrees. The high for Friday was 66 and dropping. Brrr! We were ready for it though, welcoming the even cooler temperatures to make it really feel like fall.

With the North wind that brought the cool breeze, rain, and clouds it also brought a visitor. My dad showed up on my doorstep to celebrate Chopsy's birthday with us. It had been discussed earlier in the fall, but due to technical difficulties we weren't sure if he was going to come. Dad showed up on Friday night at about 10 pm from driving all day. Barring a harrowing encounter with a hot air balloon Dad arrived safe and sound.

Since then, we've been celebrating. Chopsy's small birthday party included Gramma Cia and Bepaw Jerry, and Grampa T. Unfortunately, Gramma Hio couldn't attend due to other engagements at the zoo. Both boys have really enjoyed having Grampa T around. He has been the highlight of the weekend.

Thanks for coming Grampa T. We wish you would blow in more often. Whenever the North wind blows we'll be looking and hoping that you're on your way. We love you.
