The Playground by Grandad's House

When Grandad was still alive, we would bring Jaxon to the nearby school's playground to play and romp.  Usually this was after school hours, when we could have the grounds to ourselves.

After Grandad passed, and we didn't go by there anymore, we didn't go back to that playground for the longest time.

So when we were by there the other day, and saw that the old equipment had been replaced by all new equipment, we thought that THAT would be as good a time as any to revisit the place.

Anyway, we invited Cindy to come with us, and she brought along Qi and her parents - who were staying at Cindy's house.

The little boy was very excited about all the new equipment, but was a little confused that the old equipment wasn't there anymore, and at one point wanted to go off insearch of them.

Qi, her parents and I walked over to Grandad's old house - which was now owned by friends who go to the same church - for a bathroom break ( after being all thick skinned and getting Cindy to call first - hehe ), and the house looked wonderful.  The couple was doing a bunch of renovation, and the house never looked more beautiful :) It brought back a lot of memories to be back in the house again, and made me choke up at some point, but I am glad it is in the hands of people who are lovingly restoring it and loving to live in it.
