Grandparent Time

Granny and Papa Roedel came for a visit last week all the way from Idaho.  It was their first time to meet this grandson, and we had a great time.  We got to go out to LU's new airport facilities  (Granny and Papa discovered how many fans Ryland has at LeTourneau when a sizable crowd of faculty and staff gathered around us as a meeting was letting out):

We ate lunch on campus one day and Mark was able to show off the Belcher center and his office (both new since his parents last came).

And we visited the daffodil gardens:

And Ryland was dedicated at church on Sunday (both sets of grandparents were there, as well as Alison's sister and family...special times):

We spent the last night of Granny and Papa's visit at the Gells' (Alison's parents) "Mallard Haven" just south of Palestine enjoying God's nature and the beautiful weather.

It was a fun week.  We're glad you could come.  We love you!
