A Wonderful Weekend

We kept two of the grandchildren this weekend.

Saturday morning we went to Council Grove, Kansas to see the Wah-Shun-Gah Days parade.

These handsome young men presented our colors proudly.

Of course there were bands.

This is the reaction of Two when the band started playing right in front of her.

This covered wagon spent the last week on a trail ride across eastern Kansas. The driver is my dad and in the jump seat is my mom. On or around the wagon were various family members.

Four was watching quite intently. She was pretty sure there would be ice cream after the parade. Of course she was right. Who knew two little girls could eat so much ice cream? Strawberry for Four and "choco chip" for the Two.

Other activities over the weekend included naps. Everyone needed a break from all the fun. Then there were wagon rides checking out the livestock. They don't like bugs, they did like the turtle and the cats stayed way far away from the fun.

When the long wagon ride was over it was time to cool off in the pool. The general consenses was the water was still cold but we simply couldn't wait any longer for it to warm up.

A fun time was had by all.

They love their Grandpa.
