I flew to Phoenix on Friday morning and came back home again on Sunday with Mikey. I’ll include a few pictures we took from our time there at the end of this one, but I’ll keep the focus on the fun the boys had with Grandpa and Grandma in town. And they really did have a whole lotta fun together!
The boys taught them a new game and played a whole tournament of it:
They also worked on Halloween costumes for CC. I had ordered some things for the book characters they were going to dress up as, but the box didn’t arrive until I was already gone. So I tasked my parents with making sure everything fit and making the necessary additions – like a red feather for Reepicheep’s ear. Thank you!! Parts of Micah’s costume (King Peter) came in handy for playing “Queen” with Grandma. I understand this may have been my mom’s favorite game to play – she got to order people around and get served by the knights/servants. =D
Ethan and Grandpa spent some time making a bird feeder (more pictures to come in the next post).
And they also went down to the park a couple times to rake the leaves and jump in them, sometimes while catching the football.
Meanwhile, in Phoenix…we were eating lots of good food, playing pickle ball, and hiking. Mike spent a whole lotta time playing PIG and I enjoyed reading my book. We were SO glad to get to spend much of Sunday with Grandma Cleve, with quick little visits with both grandparents, as well!
Next up…a couple final days all together in Denver.
