Over the river and through the woods...

From mid-morning on Wednesday to mid-afternoon on Thursday, the kids were at their grandparent's house.

I'll try to cover the things they did, but as I was not there, and the sheer number of adventures they had is hard to remember, it's going to be an incomplete telling.

Suffice to say, they had an awesome time, and cried when they had to leave with me.

The went for walks, explored the garden, hunted for worms, went fishing, made cookies, ate cookies, made bread, made play-dough, played with play-dough, played with legos, did puzzles, read lots of books, had a fort made for them, rode bikes, ate well, had a bath, played played and played some more.

My mother's energy levels have always impressed me, they continue to.

Suited up and ready to go to the brook and fish.

They caught one little one, and had a near miss with something bigger.

I love that they're fly-fishing.

Play dough.

Story time.

Indoor bike riding. Safety first! :)

(These pictures were uploaded from my mother's computer, fixing the orientation would be a pain now, apologies for the head tilting.)

Bike repair.  Pretty cool tricycle.

Outdoor bike riding.

In general they had an amazing time with their grandparents, I had an amazing time to myself, and having these two generations spend quality time together is good for everyone.

I love that Grandfather Chris is wearing a Water Valley t-shirt in the last pic!
