Ride 'em cowboys and cowgirl! Nana knows my boys love being outside, touching animals, and playing in dirt. Nana also knows that Annalyse wants to do anything and everything her brothers do. With that in mind, Nana arranged a day with extended family to visit Paws Farm, a local nature center with a petting farm and many different educational centers with hands-on learning fun.
Friday morning we joined almost all of Grady's extended family for a day of soccer, playgrounds, grilling, and an egg hunt. We gathered at 10:00 am and the kids never came inside or stopped running and playing until we left at 5:00 pm. Talk about a fun and full day with cousins!
Friday evening we enjoyed pizza and games with cousins back at Nana's house before saying good bye to everyone. Our spring break week went way too fast (doesn't time away always pass quickly?). Over the week we shared a whole lot of laughs and made a whole lot of memories. My heart smiles that, even though our visits are months between, kids can pick up right where they have left off and play and laugh together.
Thanks Nana for letting our family invade your home for a week. For buying lots and lots of groceries. For sleeping on a futon so that we could all have beds. For organizing fun outings and neat activities. Thanks mostly, though, for showing great patience and deep love for my kids!
Thanks to all the uncles, aunts, and cousins who made time to see our family while we were there. It was wonderful to see everyone!
