Visit from Grandpa

My dad came to visit for Memorial Day Weekend. We had a wonderful time together and we packed the weekend with activity in true Meyer fashion. Saturday morning we borrowed a bike for Dad and went on a bike ride using our goal destination (McDonald's) as motivation to get up the long hill by our apartment. In the afternoon we took a drive in a nearby national forest, went out to an early dinner with some family friends, left Jonah with a babysitter and enjoyed an outdoor concert at the zoo.

Sunday we went to church and had a nice lunch at home while Jonah napped. In the evening we rode the world's longest tramway up to the Sandia Peak and enjoyed a nice dinner at a restaurant at the top of the mountain. Then we trooped over to Dad's hotel, put Jonah to bed in the hotel bathtub and the men got to watch sports while I watched a movie on our laptop. As Dad would say, "It doesn't get better than that!"




Oops. I put the same picture twice and I can't figure out how to remove one picture without deleting the whole post.
Here's our view from the restaurant at the top of the mountain.

Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend with your dad! That's so nice that he could come down. Is he still seeing Betsy (I'm thinking that was her name)?

So Jonah slept in the (what I'm assuming is empty) bathtub? That's clever!

As for deleting the extra picture, I think you should be able to just click on the picture you want gone and press delete. It's worked for me.
