A visit from "Gung Gung"

I'm ashamed to admit that I hadn't seen my Dad in almost 6 years. He lives in New York and while I have always had good intentions of going to visit at least once a year, somehow things always come up. I guess he decided that it had been far too long, because he decided to come and pay us a visit. If you would have seen LO with him you would have never guessed that she had not seen him since she was 3 years old. She definitely fit the role of "Grandpa's little girl" quite well and I must say that my Dad was quite the natural grandfather.

It really was a lovely visit and it definitely made me realize that I need to make a bigger effort to allow LO and her "Gung Gung" (Cantonese for Grandfather) more bonding time. Dad and PHD even had a little bonding time...PHD asked him for permission to marry me and Dad gave his blessing. Life is good.

awww LO and "Gung Gung" are so cute together! and you DEFINITELY look just like your Dad--which I am sure you hear all the time, just like me--I'm the spitting image of my dad as a kid. Hope all is well in sunny FL!

I guess that LO went "gung-ho" over "Gung Gung"!
Glad you shared a pleasant reunion.

Awww: LO is just so adorable! So, if PHD asked your dad, when is he going to officially ask you?
