We went up to Buffalo to visit Laney and fam- and gramps decided to fly in for the fun, too. We missed you Nannie Annie! Was Germany better than us?! doubtful :)
We did the Hayride first. Zeb and Henry are almost exactly the same size (even though they are almost exactly one year apart).
I'm glad Laney and Taylor stuck around on this side of the country. Hopefully with Taylor's new job- they'll be there at least as long as we are in Ohio! It's great to be able to see family within half a day's drive.
Ike always wants to sit with his dad. Every night before Ike falls asleep he tells Kent he has a secret for him. Then he whispers into his ear: "Dad, you're my best friend- not mom's". He really really loves Kent.
we scarred him?! He loved all of the ones here.
After the pumpkins- we got a sitter for the kids and went to dinner. One of the restaurant specials was Chicken and Waffles. I've ALWAYS wanted to try them and took the plunge that night. They did NOT disappoint. Really- maybe my new favorite food. The sweet and savory combination was AMAZING. Syrup with chicken? and delicious belgian waffles??! They couldn't have tasted better. thanks, dad!
Laney and my kids all associate gramps with a hotel and swimming pool for some reason :) When we got into town- gramps checked into his hotel and we took full advantage of the pool.
All except for Metta- who HATED it. All of the splashing and echoing screams freaked her out.
We almost got her to go to Kent a few times.
But then she'd stop and start shrieking. She did this almost the entire time.
We did eventually get her feet into the hot tub with auntie Laney.
Terrified that I'm going to try and throw her in!
Best toy ever: the giant snakes that fly out of the opened can. I think these came from my grandma's house!!
It was lovely. and so was our trip to Buffalo!
thanks a million times over Laney, Taylor, and Gramps!!
