Early this morning, I received a phone call from my Papaw whom I love dearly. His calls are always uplifting and encouraging. But, today he didn’t talk but a few seconds before he told me that someone was at his house, and she wanted to speak to me. There was a short pause, and then I heard the sweetest voice. It was my Aunt Glenna from North Carolina. She quickly explained that she had made an unplanned trip with her two grandbabies to visit my grandparents. She asked if it would be okay to bring them over to play with my kids.
Of course, it was okay! The kids and I had the best day. It was so nice to sit around (chase babies) and catch up. It had been way too long since I had seen her, and I don’t think the kids and I had ever met precious Maria who is already over a year old. Yikes! That’s bad I know. We have to do better! Not too long ago, I was thinking about how my kids don’t spend enough time with their cousins. It is not done intentionally, but everyone’s life seems to be so busy. Well, I am happy to say that my kids had a wonderful day with two of their cousins today! I am so glad they stopped by.
We visited Dudley and fed him cheerios. (He loves them!)
We took a hike down the driveway to see the sheep and Buckwheat. James was checking on Maria after she had a little tumble. She is a tough girl! She never misses a beat.
Buckwheat and Aranea love Cheerios, too!
After a hike back up the driveway, all the kids rode Dutchess. Lucas and Maria did so well. Lucas had never ridden before. He rode like a pro! Jacob enjoyed taking Maria around the ring. He thought it was cute when he got to take her pacifier out for the pictures!
Shortly after the horseback ride, they had to say goodbye. Lucas wasn’t really ready to leave. I wish they could have stayed longer. Jacob wants to go and visit them in North Carolina very soon (me, too)! Thanks for a great day Papaw, Glenna, Lucas, and Maria. 🙂
