Bobby had a stint with the national guard in San Antonio, so we took the kids to see my parents while he was gone for a couple weeks. It was an easy way to pass the time and the kids were quite occupied. Yes, they missed their dad terribly, but they were having enough fun to make those two weeks fly by. Jack's favorite thing to do was play with Grandpa's tractor. This car loving boy was in heaven and climbed on every chance he could get. Ruby didn't mind it either.
My sister was there for a few days when we first arrived and Ruby and Jack had a great time playing with their little cousin.
And let's face it...little miss Lisi is an adorable girl.
We also visited Grandma Berry and saw a few more cousins while we were at it.
And went hiking up Grandma and Grandpa's canyon. Ruby wasn't too thrilled with the idea of just walking and walking for no apparent reason, but when we let her choose the trail the second day we hiked, she thought that was pretty amazing and miraculously found the stamina to walk for a good 45 minutes.
And Jack bonded with uncle Rob and enjoyed some bro time with another male. Gosh, that kid is so cute. I just want to squeeze his adorableness!
We went to Leatherby's for ice cream one night, and while nothing to write home about, this boy was just about in heaven when his "ice cream cone" was brought out. Yup, I just ordered a little kid's cone for him and this is what he got.
Another highlight was the Museum of Curiosity, a new childrens museum in the area. The kids had a blast exploring and learning.
Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for such a wonderful vacation! We can't wait to come back!
