Grandpa and the Orchard

Well, we had Grandpa come for a visit this weekend and boy did we have fun! From the moment the kids got home from school on Friday until we drove him to the airport Monday night we kept him busy! Elise was loving having someone new to read to and show off her school work to. Zachary and Thomas had him wrestling, playing board games (the kids rules of course...very hard to beat them!) and reading stories. We spent Saturday at the apple orchard and had a blast. The weather was cool but not too cold, just a crisp fall day.

They tried their hand at milking a cow (a wooden one).

They had fun running through the corn maze...for a minute or two.

Then there was the train ride.

Thomas was so excited...but once it started he kept saying "can we go SO fast?". I guess it wasn't quite his speed...until he saw all the apple trees!

Here's the family, before the new addition... (WOW! am I ever puffy!! but happy to be there none the less!)
Well Grandpa, we had so much fun having you here! The kids are still talking about how much they miss you...Zac says " I really like Grandpa, I think it's because He's so funny!". Can't wait to see you next time!

So nice to get caught up on your family Gosh where do I start. Love all the furniture makeovers you did. They look great!! Can't believe your kids are off to school, and that you got to visit Des Moines!! I am really jealous of that one! And how exciting you are going to have your baby next week (I read that on FB!!) Good luck and can't wait to see pics of the new little one!!
