Trip to WI

We took a short trip to visit Grandma and Grandpa at the beginning of this month. The kid's were so excited since they had been asking to go for so long. They did really well in the car and really learned that we meant it when we said it was far away. Last week in River City (our church's kid's program) we were talking about Grandparents and Aidan said "Grandma lives faaaaaar away" :-)

We didn't much except relax and read which was just what we needed. Grandma got some great deals on some Thomas toys at a garage sale and the kids played with those every chance they could! We did brave the heat and go to the parade on the 4th of July and light off some fireworks in the backyard. It was a nice to see some old friends at Calvary and Brookside too.

Here are a few pics from the weekend. I let Eóin use my camera to take some pictures and made a little slideshow of his first photo shoot :)

 Driving far away. Reading the magazines they got with their Wendy's meal (such a load of rubbish!)
