Tractor Rides With Grandpa

I have a lot of catching up to do here on the blog, about a months worth of blogging actually but I'll start here with our latest trip to the grandparents. 

We had a whole weekend planned at the beginning of June but it turned out my bonus mom had other plans, our photo session for the boys' 4 year old pics had to be rescheduled & we just ended up driving down to Donna's parents for the day. I think a days visit with the boys is more than enough for them though, not that that's all they need but that it's really about all they can handle of 3 rowdy boys, lol...

This time the boys dragged the tractor (mower) out themselves, I really can't believe how strong they are sometimes. Donna drove them around the yard a couple times & then they insisted on grandpa driving. Grandpa gave each of them a turn on his lap driving & was even brave enough to let them steer. Caden drives like my dad did, going forward but looking everywhere but forward, lol

Kellan's driving but Garren thought he needed a boost

And of course a lap around the yard with MomMom too

It was a quick visit but the boys spent some quality time with Grandma & Grandpa both, we ate pizza, lots of cookies & of course my favorite dessert, strawberry pretzel salad. Donna's parents are doing well. They gave up the snowbird lifestyle this year. They sold their place in NY & have decided it's time to stay in FL year round again. It's great for us because they are only 3 hours away all year long now but a little sad too because we usually go to NY in the summer while they are there to check in & to visit extended family. We didn't go last year because we were building/buying the house & this summer has so much going on that it doesn't look like we'll make it this year either :( I'm hoping that the boys will have some kind of school break in the fall (other than thanksgiving) that maybe we can take a quick trip during. We will work it out one way or another, it's just a change we didn't anticipate.
