Last weekend we made it on down to the farm, for Tony's family reunion. His family is quite good at gathering regularly in the Twin Cities, but it's so nice to see the family in SW MN and SD.
We didn't get quite as early as a start as we'd liked, but still headed out decently early and everyone was in good spirits the first 45 minutes. We borrowed my Mom's DVD player for Isaac, but unfortunately we still heard "The farm's too farm away!" at least a half a dozen times.
The highlight of course though had to be the boys exploring a real farm.
Which included 4 wheel rides with Grandpa [last year he was too scared to go on Rachel & Joey's!].
The main attraction though was Great Uncle Joe's huge Case, which Isaac told me was "kind of a John Deere." At least that's what he was telling himself for betraying his beloved green and yellow.
His fast soccer shoes helped him sciddaddle right on up!
I think the tongue helped though too. :)
And then they were off. I think he was just plumb amazed!
He was so excited to tell Tony all about it.
It rained off and on the 6 hours that we were there, but I had so much fun on the trampoline with Isaac. Of course I could barely jump, but he loved that I was doing it with him.
Of course all of the that play and skipped naps for the big guy meant that within minutes of driving, he looked like this.
He rebounded though, thanks to a shrieking Ezra, and insisted that he had to wear his sunglasses to watch his movie . . . in the pitch dark!
And that's how we spent weekend #1 of my being wedding free!
