Grandpa has a ranch, and he loves to take the grandkids to see his cows and horses when they visit.
A favorite picture
On the way to Jake and Liz's we decided to stop at Yuba Dam and see how much water was coming over the spillway, which hadn't happened for 20 or more years, because of the huge spring melt.
The first thing we decided to do after arriving at Jake and Liz's was to go do a tour of the Kennecott copper mine. It was pretty amazing. This picture shows just how huge the tires are on the trucks that are as big as houses that haul the ore up from the bottom of the mine.
Those trucks looks like toys!
Grandpa showing Truman the trucks.
Three little boys needed a bath after spending the day at the copper mine.
The next day, while Jeff and Jake went golfing, we took the boys to Thanksgiving Point Gardens. It was really fun for the boys with lots to do, and really beautiful. Here's Josh and Charlie in the maze we got kinda lost in.
Truman "riding" a bear!
There was a little stream with wooden "boats" for the kids to float down the water. I think they had the most fun here.
Cute little Charlie
These two little boys had so much fun!
Then it was off to play in the splash pool.
Tia Lexi read them a bedtime story.
We had such a fun time at Jake and Liz's, but all too soon it was time to go. On the way home we stopped again at Mom and Dad's. We had fun taking Truman to the Petting Zoo at Dairy Queen.
We had another little photo session at Mom and Dad's. Their flower garden is always so beautiful.
Right before we left I wanted a picture of Cass and Truman with his Great Grandma and Grandpa.
We decided to make a stop at Grandma Keel's and see if she happened to be there, and to our delight, she was there. She spends most of her time in Oregon and only comes to Utah periodically, so we were glad we got to see her.
We finally spent a few days back at home, and this cute little picture is Truman having a "spit bath" in the kitchen sink.
Swinging in the back yard.
One last Ranger ride.
While Cass was here we wanted to do some sewing and crafting, and we were able to make lots of cute things in the time she was here. We had to utilize Truman's naps and stay up late at night to get our projects done, but we had lots of fun doing it. We tried finishing projects while Truman was around, and it was a disaster. He is a busy little boy and didn't want to be left out of the fun. This is a picture showing some of the fun hot pads, pouches, pin cushions and aprons we made. This cute apron is the one Cass made. Mine wasn't quite finished when we took this picture.
