As always when we reach my parents’ home in southern Illinois, my boys equate it to Disney Land or the likes. Their excitement is contagious and their energy knows no bounds.
Even though this trip was planned around my mom’s surgery, the boys still couldn’t rein in all their energy. Of course, it could have something to do with the long eight-hour drive from the day before. In any case, we were all up with the sun, dressed and outside jumping on the trampoline.
Thankfully Mom’s surgery went well and we arrived to find her resting comfortably on the couch. This week promises to be a highlight of the boys’ summer with all the outside activies, Grandma and Grandpa time, and Grandma’s never-ending supply of ice cream treats. 🙂
