Over the River and Through the Woods...

It may have been a little further than just over the river and through the woods but the boys and I sure enjoyed our extended visit to Nonnie and Papaw's house. Going into I was not sure how a three week trip with three wild boys would work...but God is good and we really had a wonderful time with very few melt downs (like I said God is good!:).
My parents are wonderful hosts. They are always making sure the boys have food that they like to eat, toys to play with, movies to watch and this year they went above and beyond. This is what was waiting for my boys when they arrived.

Even in the 100 + degree weather Kaden and Karter had a blast on the new "fort" as Kaden calls it.

And every afternoon when it just got too hot to do anything my sweet Dad put on his swimsuit and took Kaden swimming. There were probably only 2 or 3 days during the entire 3 weeks that they didn't go swimming. I loved seeing the two of them piling into the "red hoopty" to go fro a swim (I will get a picture of the infamous hoopty next time I go).
We had lots of other fun adventures as well. We visited the children's museum, and the jumping place, the movie theatre, chick-fil-a, and yes there were SEVERAL trips to Target!
Here are some pictures of our time with Nonnie and Papaw.

I'm so glad God has blessed the four of you with such a wonderful trip! What a blessing your parents are to your boys (and I'm sure they would agree that the boys are quite a blessing to them!)

The pictures are great! It sounds like your parents are great at spoiling your boys just like my parents! Grandparents are the best! I love the last picture...definitely one you need to blow up and frame! :)
