Jay had another few days where he had to go to a conference, this time in Colorado. So, the girls and I packed up and went to MN to visit the other grandparents! By the way, my camera cord broke or this would have been updated a LONG time ago. Beware though, I took A LOT of pictures! When I saw A LOT, I'm not joking. Be prepared.
We had an amazing time and were busy busy!
|Emma & Grandma!|
|Lily enjoying herself!|
|Playin' in the tent.|
|With the pretzel in her mouth, this reminded me of an old western movie! Haha.|
We went to visit my Grandma Reineke. It was so wonderful. Jay's parents actually knew my grandma before Jay and I were even dating. What a small world! We found out on this visit, that Lily was my grandma's 23 GREAT-GRANDCHILD!!!!! How crazy is that!?!?! And, she can name them all! It was wonderful talking with her and letting her meet yet another great-granddaughter!
|Emma was putting her penguin to bed at Great Grandmas.|
After the visit with Great Grandma Reineke, we went to Cabela's! I loved this place when I was a little girl, and I think our girls will love it too! We went to look at all the animals!! Emma loved it!
|Love this face!|
After nap time that day, we headed to a park!
|Doesn't this make you feel warm!|
|Emma's new Elmo "Mo" from Grandma!|
Emma enjoyed time with Grandpa in his Man Cave. Driving already!?!?!
|Enjoying the tent they built!|
|....reading some more.|
Saturday, Grandpa had a secret place we were heading too. We went to a pumpkin patch!!! It was so fun and exactly what I even needed. Confession: this was the first pumpkin patch for all 3 Udey ladies in this family. I have never been to one; this was such an enjoyable time and so relaxing!
|Lily really enjoyed it :)|
|Here we go!!!|
|Someone loves her Grandpa!|
|The bounce house!|
|What a cute witch.|
So, Emma wasn't tall enough to go on this slide..... but Darlynn asked and I volunteered to take her. She was in LOVE with this slide. We only made it about 4 time I think as I had to carry her up the ladder and was getting winded!
|It was even fun for me!|
Another bouncy thing.... well this time Grandpa hopped in!
|Emma trying to chase him!|
|I think we need a corn box!|
|She wanted to swim in it!|
|Emma and Grandma!|
|Checking out the animals!|
Off to the hayride!
Back home to relax!
Bath time before heading back to Des Moines!
Emma apparently needed to dance just a little more before we left. :)
We had SUCH a wonderful time!!!!!
(If you can't tell from the pictures!)
