To Grammy and Papa's house, that is.
When my cousins and I have our annual girls weekend together, it's been "tradition" that my mom and her sister take care of their grandkids at my aunt's house. This year was no different, except that with the count up to five total children between myself and my cousin, Papa was called in for reinforcements! That also provided my parents with the opportunity to whisk the boys off to their place for a few extra days, for some quality grandson time, which of course, provided Brad and I with some quality, quiet time as well!
These photos are from my parents' camera, and since I wasn't there to tell you what's going on in these pictures, I asked Drew to give the commentary for these snapshots.
Pit Stop #1: Aunt Bonita's House
"We're playing soccer in the basement. I'm running fast as I can"
"Watching football. The blue team, the green team. We like the red team."
Pit Stop #2: Grammy & Papa's House
"I'm fixing a puzzle with Uncle Justin."
"We're trying to hide from Papa, trying to not sneak up on him."
We know that Grammy and Papa cherished their time with the boys...but we're pretty sure they're exhausted! They brought the boys back last Thursday, and stayed with us for the weekend, heading back home this morning. We know they miss us when we're apart, but I'm thinking they were ready to head back to a quiet house! :)
I'm looking forward to making this a tradition with my parents, as well as with Brad's parents. I treasure my memories of my grandparents, and with experiences like these, I know that my boys will, too.
