Well, we got back from Ohio late last Friday night (5/27/11). I’ve been busy with usual life ever since and am just now getting to posting.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week up there! It was a whirlwind, and went by so fast as we stayed busy spending time with everyone! We stayed at Pop and Grammie’s (Dad’s parents and our grandparents!) and as always were so blessed by their outstanding hospitality! They go out of their way to make us feel special and treat us like kings and queens!
I guess I’ll do the logical thing and start with our first day there: Friday. There are SO many pictures from our time up there, but, no worries, I won’t post all of them! Here’s a *few* pictures! [grin]
Brother and sister havin’ fun together.
Lana enjoys playing their piano.
A suitcase waiting to be unpacked and the view from us girls “home away from home” bedroom window.
Family game night! One of the games Aunt Leah planned was a water relay. She is very creative with all the games she comes up with for our family game night and it’s something we always look forward to!
Ellen going at it.
Abby’s on one team and Ivan’s on another.
Grammie and Jared
Then they had to walk around the house with their leader blindfolded and stay connected! Or at least attempt to. [grin] Actually, they did pretty well!
Follow the leader…
“You know how big it makes you feel to get to be the leader?” [smile]
Her followers were a little ways behind her…
Football! Adam gets a turn…
and then Andrew.
One thing we did was to wrap up people in toilet paper so they looked like mummy’s! It’s fun to see how long you can go without the paper breaking! Ivan is very skilled at this so I was wrapped up the fastest…
But Anna’s wrapper got there… slowly but surely. Not breaking the paper can definitely be a challenge!
Then we (Ivan and I) wrapped up Adam.
Us and our ridiculous looking friend! [smile]

More pictures coming soon!
