We had a birthday party, complete with cake (this is Matthew trying out his new camera):
We stayed up late doing this:
and playing with these:
During the day, Samuel in particular had a blast with Daisy. He even thanked her for the birthday presents mom and dad gave him. Oh, and tried to help her clean herself with his tongue, but thankfully, I saw what was about to happen and intervened in time.
The boys had a blast swimming, and daddy had fun blasting them with the water gun.
Then, on Sunday, daddy had to head home. Many tears and sadness followed, but I think Brad was fine by the time he hit Waco (ha ha). No, seriously, the boys were very sad when he had to leave but probably nobody felt it more than I did. I just don’t feel like a whole person without him around. As I write this, we are only 24 hours away from being back home and I’m ready. But I’m getting ahead of myself. There is still more fun about which to post…stay tuned!
What a fun and exciting vacation for you all. I know the boys will be tired once home but what memories. Memories that will live a life time for them. I remember staying at my Grandmother’s and the things we did. Thank you Phyllis and Bill for taking time to build memories in the boys. I do wish we lived on a farm many times but glad you can help with creative memories. I’m sorry mericful Brad would only sit with a water gun and spray they guys. Some day the boys will remember that also.
Britany, you are a jewel to take your boys to the farm and teach them facts of life: corn, creaming corn, picking beans, etc. You are a wonderful mother!!!
