Anna found the dominoes, so Daddy set them up for her. He started on a card table in the living room, but after several times of the table getting bumped he moved to the dining room table...
He finally got them all set up (Grandma even knocked them over once!! :)). Anna was so excited!
That was fun! Let's do it again!!!
This is the country church I grew up in (side view). It eventually closed when I was in college. Never was really big, but I loved it. It's less than 1/4 mile from my grandparents' house and used to be a school house, too, where my Dad and his siblings went to school for a time. It's sad to see it sitting empty and deteriorating but such is life. That is also where Aaron proposed to me (he said he knew I'd always wanted to get married there (that's also where my parents got married), but since that couldn't happen, he figured proposing there was the next best thing). There used to be a great big swingset on this side--with a teeter toter, bar, swings, rings, and ladder. And then there was a really tall slide in the back. Lots of wonderful memories in that building!
Watching the combine in the corn field right behind Great Grandpa & Grandma's house. We had to go through a "forest" to see the combine (there's a tree line of evergreens between their house and the field) :)
A flower Mom! She had so much fun being outside. She even picked a couple of pears off the pear tree!
Daddy! Daddy! We saw a combine and a trater and gain caht (grain cart) and I found a plower (flower) and I picked some pears!! Two was wipe (ripe) and the west (rest) weren't so we threw them out fow (for) the buhds! (birds) She was super excited to tell everyone all about what we'd seen and done! :)
Again--contradictions! She is so girly, and yet she doesn't mind one bit to get her hands dirty playing in the dirt or helping work :)
After listening to Papa & Grandpa discuss what they thought needed to be done, she added her 2 cents worth!
And add she did!! :)
Here kitty! Mom, I don't know where she is!
(it was Papa on the other side of the trees meow-ing)
Shhhhh!! I hear it! *gasp* What's dat?!
(Papa was now meow-ing and rustling around in the trees)
Papa! He growled and tried to scare her, but she was FOCUSED!
Anna: Shhhh!!!! Papa, we hear da kitty!! Over dare!
Anna: YES!! Shhhh!! We gotta pind da kitty!!
It was too funny! She really had no clue that it was Papa all along making the kitty noise!!
Jacob found his favorite toy at Great Grandpa Frank and Grandma Betty's house. I don't even know what it's called, but he sat and played with it all afternoon!
And chewed on his bottom lip while he was at it :)
In the car, Jacob is king and his carseat is his throne (evidently). He's watching Veggie Tales.
Anna is just Anna and she tends to crash... :)
And the king likes to chew on his toe. How royal of him.
