The boys and their parents have returned home after a two week visit. We had a great time. It is bittersweet that they have gone. Yes it is quiet and no Legos are on the floor to create an obstacle course BUT it is quiet and no boys to play with and hug.
I stowed all the boy’s toys and got out the basket that holds cat toys. It was not long before there were cat toys spread all over the area previously habitated by Legos so Allie is trying to fill the void. I think she liked playing with the boys but she never became friendly with Sadie, their dog. There were a few loud skimishes, right to the end of the stay.
We did some fun things while the boys were here. We went to the Boonshoft Children’s Museum in Dayton, playgrounds, the Air Force Museum, Carriage Hill Metropark (a historical farm museum), Cox Arboretum (to see the butterfly house) and when their dad was along, The Entertrainment Junction (a toy train themed park inside a building near Cincinnati). All were wonderful although we were particularly taken with Entertrainment Junction, it has beautiful train displays and train themed play areas and rides. The boys LOVED it.
Here are some pictures from their stay.
Then, a few days later, Cox Arboretum
And after a night of “camping” with Grandma and Grandpa (in the trailer in our backyard) on to Entertrainment Junction!
We had a great time! Being Grandparents is a joy.
