Over the river and through the woods...

Life here has been so busy lately. It's a good thing though. We've had a bit of a boring summer up until the last few weeks. It's good to get out and have some fun!!

This weekend we visited my dad's family in Ohio. We stayed with my grandmother. It was the first time I'd ever stayed at her house with all three children!

We visited Serpent Mound. The kids enjoyed that. Candy Man got a real Arrowhead necklace from the gift shop. He's shown everyone he comes in contact with ever since! They also had a snake exhibit that day. The boys especially liked talking to the park ranger about the venemous snakes!

My grandmother then took the kids shopping to buy them each a little something to play with. She has a pool and we went swimming every day.

On Sunday, after attending church with her, most of our family came over for dinner. We had a nice visit with each other, and got to meet our newest cousin too! It was good to see everyone. I wish we got to see them more often.

The 7 1/2 hour drive home made that wish lessen a bit though, I must say! Princess cried several times during the car ride wanting to go back to "Grandpa's" (for some reason she can't say Grandma!!).

Overall, it was a very nice weekend. I am glad to be home though!!

Visiting with family is always fun! Good for the kids to know who family is outside of the home! Sounds like you all had a very good time!
