A Day in Lineville

Last Monday Kathy had to travel to Lineville to take care of some paperwork and invited the boys and I along for the ride. We invited ourselves to have lunch with Adam’s grandmother, Brenda, while we were there and planned to do some driving around.  While Kathy was taking care of the paper work, the boys and I enjoyed the beautiful day outside. We explored the overpass walk way that crosses over to the old school, skated on a large pile of acorns, and took delight in the springtime flowers. IMG_1273 IMG_1277 IMG_1278 IMG_1281

Papa Joe was away on a fishing trip and we missed him, but Grandma Brenda provided plenty of fun. The boys quickly found all the toys in her house, many of which (unlike at our house) make repetitive sounds which they find delightful. She filled us up with chicken and french fries and cookies. The boys went out to play while Kathy, Brenda, and I visited. Then Kathy and I went out to join them in the woods for a game of hide and seek. Jack plays hide and seek entirely too well for my comfort. He managed to sneak back into the house, procure the “pee man” (a plastic man in a barrel that sprays water when you move the barrel), and then hide behind a tree to catch us when we approached.  Of course everyone had to have a turn and Brenda wised up after last time and we kept the game outside instead of in the kitchen.  It was a special joy to watch the boys chasing their grandmother and great-grandmother around and listen to the laughter.IMG_1291 IMG_1290 IMG_1288 IMG_1286

After Brenda filled them up with leftover Halloween candy, the remaining cookies, and sent them out the door with 2 1/2 pounds of jelly beans we explored Lineville while Kathy told the boys stories about things she did when she grew up.  It was a wonderful day.
