My dad's nickname is Big Jon. I guess that was started back when my brother Jon was called Little Jon (but he's not little anymore). Now that my dad is a grandfather (my fault) and he's not the only grandfather to my girls, we call him "Grandpa Big Jon" to distinguish him from my Grandpa [Charles], his father and my kids' great-grandfather, who we call "Grandpa".
Here are some pictures from my dad's visit to our house yesterday. Raquel made him run around in our hot house until he just couldn't go anymore, he he! And it was his first time meeting Maxine, who smiled at him upon seeing his face for the first time (aww).
Raquel couldn't understand why Grandpa Big Jon had to stop playing (uh, so he could catch his breath?) She didn't care that it was 90 degrees in the house. I commend my Pops for trying to keep up with her. She loved it!
