Reid enthusiastically shouted “Hi Grandma!” and raced to throw his arms lovingly around a kind-looking woman’s legs.
Unfortunately, we are in Estes Park without Grandma.
After happily snuggling her legs for a while, he finally looked up and realized she wasn’t Grandma. She laughed and thanked him for the hug and said that it’s true, she is a grandma.
He looked very confused and his face fell–he was clearly wondering what happened to his Grandma, who he saw moments before. A mystery we could not explain to a toddler. He sadly said, “Bye bye,” as we walked away.
