We were up at Eric’s parents house this past weekend for a visit. Grandpa Danny was in serious need of visitors, so we humored him and made the drive up. ; ) The kids were excited to see a couple of cousins – Addi and Easton. Avery and Addi discovered that they had the same taste in clothes and babies (they had to share Auntie Kelli’s old and moldy baby that Addi is holding here and at times, it got ugly…kinda like the baby!).
Easton and Dylan had a ton of fun together too.
As usual, they drove the truck and Jeep around until the batteries (and spare batterieS) wore down. Dylan was the only safe driver of the bunch this weekend, so he did most of the driving.
The girlies enjoyed playing with the ugly baby more than doing rough and tumble boy things.
We celebrated Dylan’s birthday a week early for the folk that are unable to attend his birthday party this coming weekend. And at Happy Joes – duh!
Yes Auntie Susan, they turned on the siren for him too. ; )
The fall colors are just starting at Maple Lake it seems. They are nearly done here I think as we arrived home to a good amount of leaves on the ground. This is a tree in front of Gma and Gpa Wikoff’s house.
OH! Its Farmer Plato driving his tractor!
It was 80 degrees and sunny on Sunday afternoon. Not too shabby for October 2nd! So it was a good time to take out the dock, boat lift and pontoon. And to play on the beach.
And drink Gpa Danny’s tea.
And play with the Hobe-ster who was abandoned by his mother for the weekend.
I came upon Dylan giving Easton a neck massage. I taught him that! : ) The neck massage part – not the “give Easton a neck massage” part. Normally this is treatment reserved for moi.
Avery enjoyed doing her own thing on the beach.
These two pictures were her idea. She wanted a picture of her on both slides.
Oh there’s that Farmer Plato again! Looks like he’s got a few helpers! Avery, Auntie Kacie, Baby Gordie, Easton and Dbert.
We went on a final Maple Lake pontoon ride. Sigh.
Easton nearly lost his head!
Avery fell asleep a few minutes later.
Apparently the last Maple Lake pontoon ride was boring to her? That or she had too much fun with her cousins this weekend.
Whats all that junk junkin up my picture? ; )
And here we are, back at home. See – leaves on the ground. Sigh.
I told her to turn around and face me for a picture and this is what she did. That works, I guess.
I bribed them with cookies to get the following pictures and they didn’t even turn out as good as I had hoped! Dang it!
Would it kill you to smile normal, Dylan?!?
It all worked out in the end. Awwww.
That is all. : )
