Tender moments with Great-Grandpa

Monday night was a very special night for Donny's family. His grandpa turned 102 years old and the family got together to celebrate. He lives in a really wonderful home where the owners always do a great job of celebrating the important events in their residents' lives. We love any excuse to get together with Donny's extended family!

Digging in to his lemon meringue birthday pie!

Piper and her second cousin were born in the same hospital 12 hours apart :) There were SO many little babies there and several more that weren't able to make it to the party!

Snuggling with Grandpa

Donny's middle name is Ray after his grandpa, and that's where Raya's name came from

The party was winding down and everybody was starting to leave. The people that were left started cleaning up the tables & chairs and a few of us were still standing around talking. I looked around the room to find Raya, who had been ridiculously full of energy the whole time we were there, and saw her bouncing across the room towards her great-grandpa. She was off in her own little world and was singing to herself when she suddenly stopped singing and popped up on the couch next to Great-Grandpa's chair. She must have thought he looked bored because she seemed to decide that he needed to be entertained. Once he noticed her sitting there staring at him with her chin propped up on her elbows, he started playing with her. I couldn't hear what they were saying and they probably didn't catch most of what the other person was saying, but they were happy and the exchange was adorable. He got her nose:

They arm wrestled:

She sang "Let it Go" from the Disney movie Frozen:

And then they both sang to each other at the same time:
She saw the pictures today and I asked her what song Great-Grandpa was singing to her. She said she was singing Let it Go and he was singing the Happy Birthday song. Too cute! I don't know that she'll remember it years down the road but I'm so glad I noticed and got a few pictures.
