While my parents were visiting, we ate at Jimmy John's sandwich shop. My parents noticed all the workers wearing, "JJ" hats so they asked if they could buy one. JJ loves his hat with his name on it and wears it a lot! Every time we pass Jimmy John's, he says, "There's my store, the JJ store!"
Helicopter rides from Papa have been a favorite in our family for as long as we can remember. Usually it's a right- before- bedtime ritual of getting to buzz around the house in jammies, coming to a safe landing in bed! They start when they're brand new babies and so far, even Sis is still getting them at 6 1/2. It will be a sad day when we're too big for those good times!!
I'm NOT a morning person (shocker, I know) but J is exactly opposite, he loves to wake up early and get started for the day. Our children are a mix of the both of us, Sis is a night owl and likes to sleep in, JJ is up at the crack of dawn, sometimes earlier, and JD does both. For some reason this morning, they were all up and ready to go when the sun came up so J took them out onto the porch to watch the sun come up. I, of course, was still snuggled in my warm bed fast asleep!!
