Week at Grandmas Round #2

Last week I loaded up the car, the kids, and headed up to Grandma and Grandpas house again. Am I crazy, yes. A little homesick, maybe.

Anyways, we had a great trip, had lots of fun, made more memories, and had lots more adventures with Grandma and Grandpa.

I thought that I would share some of the things that we did with you all.

The first thing that we did was visit Wheeler Farm with Grandpa. My dad used to take me and my brother there when we were little to see all the animals on the farm. It was so fun to go with him. He loved to see the kids excitement when they went chasing after the geese, or see the geese chase after the kids!

Probably my favorite part or thing about this trip was how Noah and his Grandpa bonded. It started at Wheeler farm when he came and sat down next to him on the wagon and then how he wanted to hold "PAPA's hand all the way back to car. Noah really took to his Grandpa that day and it just warms my heart to see that finally happen. It continued throughout the whole trip and I am sure it will continue when we go back next time.

The next adventure that we went on was to take the kids to Hogle Zoo. They were having a Dinosaur exhibit there at the zoo, including huge, talking, roaring, spitting, and moving dinosaurs. They were surrounded all around the zoo and being the dinosaur fanatic my daughter Katelyn is, she was in heaven. She was so excited when she came upon a new dinosaur.

Here are some of the pictures from our zoo trip :

It was a great day, the weather was great, the animals and dinosaurs were all awesome. Yes, the giraffe had his tongue up his nose, and Noah was not a fan of the dinosaurs. He would cover his ears and not want to get near them !! Although from afar he would point and say "ROAR".

Randomness :
  Lunches outside on the patio. Feeding each other olives.

Water wars in the hot tub

Finding treasure at the dinosaur museum. They were having a pirate party that day.
building dinosaurs at the dinosaur museum. Always a must from now on when we go to Grandma's house.

It was a great trip and now Grandma is here with us. Yeah !! We have been loving having her here for a visit and will be leaving Monday to take her back home and to go to our family reunion.

Hope your all enjoying your summer, whether it be fast, slow, delicious, or unforgettable.
