Over the River and Through the Woods ...

We went up to see the boys' paternal grandparents this weekend, otherwise known as Gemma and Pop. We had a very relaxing and fun time looking at the snow out the windows and playing with the boys by the warm fireplace. Okay, so maybe they didn't like to pose for pictures, but trust me, a fun time was had by all.

Cameron enjoyed spinning jacks and learning how to play the game with Gemma (as did Connor with Pop, not pictured below),

And Connor enjoyed looking at and feeding the fish with Gemma. (In case you are wondering, yes, his shirt does say "Babe Magnet.")

Gemma's wonderful best friend, Margie, brought identical low-rider cars for both of the boys for Valentine's Day. They were a huge hit! They raced them up and down in the kitchen floor together for a large part of the evening. (Margie and Gemma later joked that we could leave them at Gemma and Pop's house "accidentally" if we wanted. The cars, that is, not the boys, of course!)

We had a yummy home-cooked meal, watched the races with Pop, and Cameron even helped Pop feed the deer (his favorite job at their house in the woods). Thanks for a nice visit, Gemma and Pop!

Awwww....what a wonderful surprise when I went on your blog today! We had such a fun time with all of you. Cameron and Connor are such sweet, good boys. You and Eric are the most amazing parents! Thanks for sharing your weekend with us!

Thanks, Gemma. We certainly don't feel like amazing parents all of the time, but we do have two sweet boys. I'm glad that you liked the post. :)
