Fun with Nana and Grandpa!

Our family made a trip up to Spokane for the weekend as Matt was officiating the wedding ceremony of our friends Molly and Jim. We are blessed to have Matt's parents, Vonnie and Duane, there in Spokane! Nana Vonnie cleared her schedule in order to babysit the boys during the times when Matt and I were busy with the wedding.
To say we had a wonderful time would be an understatement! The boys were thrilled to stay with Nana and Grandpa, and we were so thankful for the help, and the visit! Nana had LOTS of great ideas on how to have fun with the boys! It included reading lots of stories, playing at the park, making cookies AND visiting the local fire station where a REAL Fireman showed the boys the big trucks! The fire fighter was such a good sport! He let the boys climb in and out of the truck, turned the lights on, lowered the ladder, showed them their hats and coats, showed us where the fire fighters sleep, and pretty much put the boys in awe! It was such a great idea, and the boys are still talking about it! It was funny, at first, they were pretty shy, especially Jonah, but after a bit, they warmed right up and had a great time!
Nana and Grandpa, thank you so much for all your help! Thank you for the wonderful visit... We look forward to coming up and staying with you again soon!

Caleb loved story time with Nana.

Jonah trying on the fire mans hat!
The tires and hub caps are huge! Big enough to make some very silly faces!

Nana and the twins!
I should note that Jonah only went up into the truck when Nana promised to go with him!

A stop at the park. It was supposed to rain this day, but it held off long enough for us to have some fun outside.
