Funny Faces Brought to You By Pa

My Dad came for a visit last weekend. I always love watching my children with any of the grandparents and this weekend was no exception. They had a blast with their, "Pa".

On a particularly long drive to the rodeo, Sarah and Pa were playing together in the back of the van. She really got a kick out of it when he would blow gently in her face. She would alternate giggles and funny faces in her attempts to blow back at him. Here's the proof:

At the rodeo, Claire enjoyed her first pony ride:

Rolled down an indoor hill:

And fed some very persistent animals:

After all the fun, we headed home. Everyone was exhausted so we plugged in a movie and this is how the girls and their Pa spent the last two hours of the evening:

Boy are we thankful for all the options available to us for travel. It shortens the miles between our family members and allows our girls to know all their grandparents so well. What a blessing!

Here's What Happens . . .

Apparently Sarah can climb now. Good times.

A month worth of sickness will leave you with quite the case of cabin fever. We finally emerged from the cootie fog last weekend and enjoyed a local parade with our small group. So. Much. Fun. Seriously, I love watching things like parades through the eyes of my babies.

And boy did I forget how much candy gets thrown out at parades. Claire came home with more candy loot than she collected at Halloween.

Here are some pictures of the fun.

Wave that flag girlie!

The bands were a little loud for Claire.

Sweet sisters.
