Weekend with dear grandparents

Mom and Dad (and Tom) were in Indiana for Pastor’s Conference last week and we were lucky to get a visit on their way home. They did a little early birthday celebration with Claire.

Getting better with practice. Grandma and Grandpa took her to the school parking lot to try them out and she got even better.

We had fun watching the Olympics together, they gave us a fun movie date/night out, and we went to church and got Mexican food afterward before they headed home. Here’s what we did on Saturday….

Back in late summer, we went to this metro park (with a house from the 1880s) with Abigail and Dietrich. We decided it was time to check it out again.  What kid can resist a pump??

Entertainment, 1880’s style. We were all duly impressed with the stereoscope.

Claire was in love with this sheep. And he was a really good poser. He held still like this for ages! When she moved away, he actually laid his head on her shoulder!
