As with all good trips, ours started off by waking up early to catch a flight. The boys were dazed and confused but willing to obey because Mommy kept mentioning the words "ride on a plane".
Calvin and Noah loved picking oranges from the backyard with grandpa and making them into juice. They also learned how to feed and chase Grandpa's newest additions to the family. (There are five more chickens as well.) And yes, it crows every morning at the first glimpse of sunlight and keeps crowing until it is sure everyone is awake and stirring inside the house.
Calvin was in heaven when Grandpa brought his plane home for repairs.
Grammy always has the house decorated beautifully for the holidays and Noah loved it all, especially the nativity animals.
The boys were of course spoiled by Grammy and Grandpa.
All of the fun new toys and goodies made it especially hard on Calvin's sharing abilities.
I was very excited to surprise RB with my gift to him this year. For the past few years/ ever since we were married, we've had issues about the number of t-shirts he has and insists on keeping. (He has actually gone through the trash to save them.) So I found a way to preserve his precious memories and intramural championships t's and make them functional as well...
... and he was only slightly upset that he wouldn't be wearing some of them anymore.
