We arrived at Luke and Miranda's house on Sunday afternoon. It was so good to see their sweet faces! We saw them six months ago, but kids change so much in that time! Sawyer will be two in December. He's such a peanut, but with his big boy haircut he looks older:(
Siefer (pronounced with a long "i") has such enthusiasm for everything in life! At three and a half, she enjoys herself and was eager to show us everything. We decided that with all the driving we had done on the trip out -- and because long drives are no fun for one-year-olds and three-year-olds -- we would stay close to home and enjoy doing everyday kinds of things that we don't get to do together.
Miranda made her to-die-for chili, Luke and Dan threw the baseball, I colored with Siefer, and we watched some of her favorite movies. We went to the kids' favorite park one afternoon.
Siefer's favorite was the kitten barn.
She liked the pony ride, too!
The most fun for me, was holding the grandkids, haha!
We all went home with a pumpkin. . .
. . . and Miranda insisted on the biggest one she could find. Which meant she had to hold it on her lap all the way home, because with four adults, two kids in carseats, and six pumpkins, room in the car was a little tight.
For weeks before we arrived, Siefer talked about wanting to go bowling with PopPop. We found a bowling alley that would be considered vintage nowadays -- we actually kept score ourselves with pencil and paper. It was fun and brought back memories of when Dan and I first met through our company's bowling league!

Posting all these pictures makes me miss my grandbabies! It was hard to leave, but I have one more post to share our trip home.
