Yesterday we took a road trip down to Southern Minnesota, to the farm where Tom grew up and his mom still lives. Our last trip down (this past winter) Ella threw-up on the way. This trip she also had a tummy ache, but didn't throw up -- and despite a colder and windier day than we had hoped for, it was a really good time!!
Ella driving the old tractor with Zoe peaking through the open door.
Biking the super long driveway was a total highlight, and so was spending time with *big* cousins Lauren and Erin.
..... see his head way up at the top?? The girls were so excited that their daddy was way up in the sky!!!
Tom also let the girls ride on the big rope in the old barn, which was another fun part of the trip ....
And of course Tom had to get into the swinging too!!
On the way home we asked the girls what their favorite part of the day was -- they both mentioned the above activities .... but they both also said 'seeing their Grandma Della'. It was a very special part of the day and even though we didn't get any pictures of her (or the rest of the family that was there), or any photos of the bonfire and trying to roast hotdogs and marshmallows --- we had a Saturday well spent!!
And because the roasting of hotdogs didn't work too well yesterday we're doing that in our backyard -- for dinner tonight!! Hotdogs and smores ---- Yummy!!
