Visit from Grandpa and Grandma Scott

My parents came from Las Vegas to spend a couple of days with us. We enjoyed having them here and while our weekend was low key and uneventful we had a great time. The boys thought is was great to take Grandma and Grandpa to the farm and let them feed the calves. Grandma and Grandpa were great sports. Friday night we cooked and had dinner outside on the patio, then we did s'mores and waited for it to get dark enough to do fireworks. Unfortunately, by the time it was dark it was too windy to do the fireworks so they had to be postponed until Saturday. Grandpa and Grandma left on Saturday at about 2:00 to catch their flight back to Las Vegas, the boys moped around and then finally settled down and watch a couple of the movies their grandparents brought for them. Then later that night we were able to light fireworks. The boys loved lighting the fireworks and running away before they went off. Wade and I enjoyed watching them and how excited they were about EVERYTHING.

What a fun time, I am glad they got to do their fireworks, even if it was a day late. Looks like the wait was worth it:)

Looks like lots of fun! That is so cool that your boys got to set off fireworks, they are illegal to have in NY unless you area big company with a permit :( Every time I see pictures of your farm I want to come visit you so badly, Maybe me and Taylor can hang out on the farm, i would love that!
