Sunday and Tuesday

Saturday at Brad's Grandpa's house was a lot of fun and we really enjoyed the time we got to spend with all the family. However, on Sunday morning we were off and running again, this time to Des Moines to visit Janette (Brad's Mom). We had a fantastic steak lunch with macaroni and cheese (of course) and sipped Dr. Pepper as we told our tales of the weekend. The girls got to play with their cousin Aiden and a little girl from next door that was visiting her Grandma.

After lunch we headed over to a good friend of Janette's whose granddaughter also happened to be visiting. Scout is just about Taylor's age and they became instant friends. All four kids and almost all the adults (Brad forgot his trunks) took advantage of the cool water and swam for a good hour and a half. Dolt that I am, I didn't take any pictures. I was too busy trying to breathe. The water dropped about 6 degrees as clouds rolled in and rain started to sprinkle and I slowly began to turn into a popsicle. Of course the kids paid no attention at all and wanted to remain in the pool the rest of the day. After finally convincing them to get out (Taylor's lips were bright purple) we went back to Grandma Janette's and loaded up the car to head back to KC. WHEW!

Three different grandparent visits in one weekend! I think we set a new record. But it was worth it because we got to see everyone and had a blast doing it. Now next year maybe we'll just stay home and sleep the entire weekend!

I hope you all had a fantastic 4th of July!!
