Grama and Grampa Visit + A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch!

In mid October, Grampa and Grama drove all the way down from Kansas to visit us for the weekend! It sure was a treat! We squeezed in alot of playtime, including a trip to the pumpkin patch!



Mario toted Lucas around in the backpack



Anthony wanted to hold Grama's hand



Here we are!






Pumpkin Patch 2011








Anthony went straight for the pumpkins









This lovely little butterfly kept landing on Grampa









Aren't our grandparents beautiful?!?
(outside and inside--truly amazing people)








The boys had so much fun feeding the animals!


I love Lucas' expression here with his mouth open--haha!


He's concentrating!








It was so much fun sharing our yearly tradition with Grama and Grampa











When Anthony ran out of animal feed, he tried feeding the goats rocks.


Hmmmm, wonder why they weren't as interested?









This was Lucas' first time feeding the animals. Last year, he sat in the stroller with his paci and watched. My baby is growing up!









I think he liked the goats best








Anthony loves animals and is so sweet to them









Grampa and Lucas waiting for the hayride








watching with excitement










view from the front--it was a big one...it had several of these trailers crammed full with people!









Anthony had fun seeing the sights







Lucas had a ball in Grampa's lap






Anthoy chose to sit extra close to Grama







I love this sweet picture







Lucas loved picking through all the pumpkins--they all looked great to him!








sweet baby boy








Anthony found his favorite!








a quick family photo






grama and grampa's turn!


the boys were losing it, but don't our grandparents look beautiful?







We went out for dinner to Babe's, and after that, the boys had a blast checking out the train!










So fun! I had a great video clip of Grampa explaining the train to Anthony. It was too big to upload on my blog, but it was so cute! Anthony asked a ton of questions, and Grampa patiently answered every one of them. Grampa knows a ton about trains. Anthony was super interested in his locomotive lesson!








We'll have to get this boy on a real train ride one of these days!










Oh, these boys adore their grandparents--yes, they do!

A little video clip of Grampa blowing bubbles for Lucas. I love how these two have not lost touch with their "inner child"!





Thank you, Grama and Grampa, for being such godly, loving examples for these boys and for us! It means so much to us that you made the trip to see us and that you make our relationship with you a priority. Your legacy for the Lord shines so brightly! You are welcome back anytime!
