Story told by: Henry
As we neared the end of our visit with Grandma and Grandpa, we often skipped naps because we had so many activities to pack into our remaining days!
Grandma and Grandpa took Lainey and I to Bonkerz (while Mommy and Brody took a nap at home…boring!).
After Bonkerz we went to Old McDonald’s for lunch (as we like to call it), and had a delicious lunch. We even had an ice cream treat afterwards. These are Lainey’s and Grandma’s “Brrrr! The ice cream is soooo cold” faces.
On another day we met Daddy at Ferdinand’s for ice cream. I don’t like ice cream (I know, I know, it’s strange), so I had some Cougar Gold cheese curds. (And notice how cute I am in this picture and what a grump my sister is. I’m one perfect kid.)
Just livin’ the thug life with Grandpa.
We kept Grandpa busy with frequent requests for him to give us baths at night. Mommy and Daddy seemed pretty happy with this request!
After our baths, we tried to sneak in even more activities before we had to go to bed. Lainey loved painting with Grandma.
I loved reading books with Grandpa (and the most commonly read books were obviously about trucks).
While we’re just crazy about having Grandma and Grandpa here, Brody doesn’t seem convinced. His face says it all!
We took Grandma and Grandpa to story time, and I demonstrated my more relaxed approach with Ms. Kathleen.
After story time, we went to the Dollar Store. While Mommy fed Brody in the car, Lainey and I went with Grandma and Grandpa to pick out whatever we wanted. When our Dollar Store trip required a cart to get to the car, Mommy had to take a picture because she couldn’t quite believe it.
Lainey and Grandpa had a special date to Old European one morning. I can’t wait until I’m old enough to join them on these breakfast dates!
While Lainey was at breakfast, Grandma made a castle for us! Lainey was soooo excited when she got home! (The opening she’s sticking her head out of can also be used for a puppet theater.)
Our Grandma is the coolest!
My absolute favorite thing in the world right now is waving at trucks, so you could often find us outside waiting for the big trucks to drive by. If we were lucky, they would honk for us!
One of the things we got at the Dollar Store was a kite, so one afternoon we went to an open field to fly it.
They made me stay in the stroller. I wasn’t exactly thrilled with that choice. (** Disclaimer…after receiving a call from Grandma, Mommy was made aware that I only had to stay in the stroller while they built the kite. They’re not monsters…they let me run around while they were flying the kite.)
There was just enough of a breeze that day to make the kite flying a success!
As the week goes on, Brody has been getting much more alert. He’s so darn cute!
We spent lots more time enjoying the warm weather and playing in the water!
I got this water table for my birthday, so now that the weather is warm enough, Grandpa helped to set it up. We love it!
Lainey and Grandpa took a long scooter ride one day.
While we were busy outside, Brody stayed busy inside with some time on his mat. This is his idea of fun!
One last picture of Grandma and Grandpa with their newest grandchild. We had to take them to the airport this morning, and we were quite sad to see them go. Hopefully we’ll get to see you in just a few months. We love you!
