Special time with G.G.
Hunter and Jacob are very lucky to have 6 grandparents and 2 great-grandmas to spend time with and spoil them silly. Today we got to have a wonderful day with G.G. at The Farm at South Mountain. We had a yummy lunch outside on some picnic tables under pecan trees, while getting scorched from the sun (I forgot sunscreen! ouch!). The boys ran around finding pecans on the ground while G.G. and I finished eating and then we got to explore.
G.G. was full of information about the pecans and the boys loved asking her all sorts of questions. We got to see chickens, lots of vegetables growing, and tons of local artists. The boys each got a carrot fresh from the ground and a bag full of pecans.
On our walk back to the car there was a farmer picking weeds. G.G. tried to speak Spanish to him to ask if the boys could help him. I don't know if he didn't understand or what but she told the boys to go on down and help him! They got to pick weeds between the vegetables and even picked a baby carrot.
After a full day in the sun, we took G.G. home. Hunter and Jacob had to get out to see Purl (G.G.'s dog) and her birds. They got to run around her house and help her fill her bird feeders. Trying to get them to leave was pretty hard.
No one fell asleep on the way home despite being super tired, but thankfully they were both quiet.
