Ours kids are pretty lucky — they have some awesome grandparents (on both sides) and they get to live fairly close to two sets of grandparents (read: spoiled rotten). My mom and dad are only about 12 minutes from us, which is so cool for the kids. A regular thing they only get to do with Nana and Papa is go to the coffee shop. Almost always, they walk there and enjoy muffins, hot chocolate, and lots of fun. The older my kids get, the faster time seems to fly by… which seems to be the norm. I decided I wanted to capture this fun tradition between my parents and my kids before the kiddos grow too much more. So, off we went. A walk to the coffee shop complete with Nana and Luke races (and Luke cutting Nana off so she had to slow down and he could win… turd), sticks, stopping to fix a wonky sock (about 7 times), running, jumping, jokes, and laughing. Once we got to the coffee shop, it was down to business. This is a little local shop where my parents are regulars and everyone knows everyone. If you know Java Stop, you know exactly what I am talking about. Luke walks in and they immediately grab him a morning glory muffin. I just adore places like this — they know you, they know your story, and they know what you like. There was lots of laughing, eating, and drinking at the coffee shop, of course. I had a blast capturing this adventure and stealing these little moments of time. Love you guys.
