Sunday Dinner with Grandpa Lyons
We were lucky to have Grandpa Lyons visiting this week for the family potluck. Its so fun to have him in town. I wish we could see him more. The kids all love him, and watching them interact with him reminds me of being a kid around him. He's such a wonderful man, I feel blessed for having him as an example every day of my life. He tells the best stories, and has the most interesting insights into life. Today he shared a scripture with me, and then went on to discuss it with my dad for 1/2 hour. I feel an overwhelming desire to record everything that comes out of his mouth. Today, I turned on the microphone on my phone, and slipped it by him as he told some stories. I want to remember them forever.
He reminds me so much of my dad--both amazing men. I miss the ear pulls he used to give us as a kid. :)
