After taking a nap that afternoon he joined us in our Spring Clean Out of the Garage. He fixed bikes, pumped up flat balls, and helped move things. It was great to have him around! We even made a quick trip to one of Idaho's true treasures-the snow cone shack! And just as soon as he had arrived, it was time for him to leave. We drove him out to the freeway to meet up with his brother Doug and off they went to Canada for another all night drive!
Saying goodbye with Luke.
While on the subject of Papa...the kids sure had fun with him over Spring Break. I didn't have these pictures when I did my Spring Break recap.
One day that week Papa loaded all four boys up in the truck and headed for the hills...literally. It was a wet day and papa let them drive with the windows down as they flew through mud puddles.
If this is what their faces looked like, I wonder what his car looked like!
As usual with Papa, SAFETY FIRST! No seat belts required for this adventure. Joshua is sizing up the next mud puddle.
Papa took them to one of his favorite diners up in the hills. The kids were able to order whatever they could eat.
Looks like each boy even got their own drink!
I am sure that will be a memory the boys will not forget!
Later that week we all headed to Palm Springs for Aunt Carols memorial service. Joshua, James, and their little cousin Presley all drove down with Nana and Papa. They stopped in Carlsbad for a mini visit to pick up Aunt Krista and visit with Uncle Gary. This was taken right across from their house....yes they live RIGHT by the beach. Pretty sweet.
Hanging out in front of their home.
