Quick visit from Granny and Grandpa

For about 10 days around Ian and Megs wedding we were lucky to have a visit from Granny and Grandpa. Brian and Anne were officiating the wedding so we were blessed to add some family time before and after.  Here are a few pics from their visit:

Finally, after Granny and Grandpa had gone home, we snapped this shot of Abby Face-timing with them. Very cute.
