It's the Country Life For Me

I have to say.....it's been a little over a year since we moved to the country and I'm digging it. I think we all Are. The other evening, Papa(G-man's dad) came to visit. The boys were thrilled, they love having Papa around. After dinner, the men gathered for a little football. Papa was wise to stand aside and let G-man get tackled.

A tradition that was started when the boys were really little......riding in the back of Papa's pickup truck. Hmmm, I need to re-think this activity. At the speed that Papa was driving, probably not the safest activity. The boys think it's a blast. Fun vs. safety.....always a tough decision, don't ya think? Noooo, I'm just kidding.

Then it was time for some chases around the house. The boys usually have some theme to their chases. This day they were pretending to be Charlie Brown and Linus being chased by monsters....aka....G-man and Papa. It's amazing how this gets your heart pumping.

I'm guessing it raised Papa's heart rate a bit. He was ready to go home and get to bed after a couple chases.....that is....until Sammy came running with a big hug and pleaded...."But Papa please don't go.... I want to spend time with you!".

Yep, Papa stayed a bit longer. We love that guy!

Girl. . . I grew up in the country. . . and, I LOVE it and I MISS it! I love going back to my parents house and being surrounded by nothing. It looks like you guys are making such great memories and creating a place where your boys will just savor and anticipate coming home to after they have families of their own.

This was soo fun!! I love your boys and I don't even know them personally!! ;) They just seem like bundles of fun!

We love having grandpa--Poppa come over too. And, I love the country. I didn't grow to love it 'til later in life (I started out in the city) but I can't wait to get "out" again.

Like Michele said..what memories you guys are creating!

I missed talking to yesterday...you ok?

How fun!! I think this is one thing that makes me want to move closer to home is so my kids can go see their grandparents when they want but since we live 4 1/2 hours away it makes it hard!!
Love all the pictures they will always remember their special time with their grand dad.

You are giving your boys the best possible life. What a blessing to have an involved dad and Papa and all that space to play!

That is so awesome! I told Preston just yesterday that I want to move to the country. Become farmers and live off our land. I want him home with us all day and we can homeschool in the barn! :)

He wasn't too keen on the idea...pooey...city boy!

When I was little my Daddy used to take us on pick up truck drives in the summer. We all rode in the back and he would drive around the neighborhood. 3 miles. We thought it was the greatest treat after a hot summer day.
