After spending a few days with us, the Vernon clan took me with them to visit our Great-Grandparents, who are JuneBug's and Peanut's Great-Great Grandparents!
I love this picture...laid back JuneBug and talkative Auntie in our travels :)
Once arrived, we ate at a Chinese restaurant.
Our waitress loved Peanut (though who can blame her? :D). Peanut wasn't quite sure what to think. :)
JuneBug was so excited to get ice cream
Peanut loved it, too!
Grandpa eating my mistake :D
Strolling the grounds
Peanut and Ike
Touring Grandpa's office
JuneBug loved riding the play horse
Explaining the old telephone
Peanut enjoying a ride, too
Everyone has to try out the pump organ!
"I'm doing it!"
JuneBug didn't have to press the pedals :)
Peanut was trying to learn how to climb the steps. Eventually he did climb up one step, but didn't make it any further.
"Hm? Me? Climb steps? Noooo...."
"I can do it, too!"
Grandpa outshone us all with his excellent talent
Telling about his treadmill
Grandma and Peanut
JuneBug found a train
A table JuneBug's size. Grandpa and Grandma have all sorts of interesting things!
Snacks before bedtime. If you ever need to hear a bedtime story, just ask Grandpa about the corn story his Grandpa used to tell..... :)
Tying a piece of floss around JuneBug's wrist.....why? Because that's just Grandpa. :) As you can tell, JuneBug didn't mind a bit.
Mmm! Breakfast! If there's one thing you can count on at Great-Grandpa's and Great- Grandma's house (besides having a load of fun), it is that you will never go hungry.
We were blessed every morning to have Grandpa read a chapter from the Bible to us.
Peanut is starting to enjoy cheerios!
Making our PB&J picnic lunch
Telling (or asking) Grandma something
Grandpa and Ike enjoyed a little pool
Lunch at the park
Too cute for words
They had so much fun!
This was JuneBug's first time being at a park that big, and he did not want to leave!
Trying to work this balance thing
Help from Great-Grandpa
JuneBug did not like this slide...in case you couldn't gather that from how tight he was holding on to Meg :)
We spent one afternoon at the beach!
Poor Grandpa and Grandma...we wore them out!
What would be the beach without a beach bucket?
In the lake
Nothing like root beer floats to end an evening
Getting our tickets for...
Instructions from the conductor
Grandpa has such captivating stories
JuneBug getting his ticket punched by the Conductor
Just like his Momma....sleeping on vacation :)
Enjoying the ride
Once we arrived at our destination, the engine had to switch which end he was pulling the train to take us back.
Backing up to latch on to the new train car
Our Group (Grandma stayed at home to work on lunch)
Grandpa got out his harmonicas and taught Ike how to play
While Grandpa, Grandma, Ike, and Meg enjoyed their hollander break, the boys and I enjoyed an afternoon nap!
Catching up on e-mails (that was an e-mail to you, Allie! :) Meg wanted to take a picture as if that is the only thing I do on vacation :)
Meanwhile, everyone else played ball
"I did it!"
JuneBug was pitched to, while Ike needed the Tee :D
So.....when I was done on the computer, Meg jumped on to catch up on her e-mails :)
Riding a dog...?
One talented Momma
Meg and her boys
Such a cute couple
Grandpa and Grandma took us to an ice cream shop! JuneBug wanted blue ice cream :)
Winding down with a Baseball game
Thanks for having us, Grandpa and Grandma! (and for not getting upset about your rabbit.....)
Ike's right-hand helper
We were all tired!
Snickers bar, family, talking....
