Quick Trip to Kennewick

Day One: Our goal was to leave her around 9 a.m. on Friday morning and we did! We took our time heading over to Kennewick, stopping for coffee, driving through Irrigon & Umatilla, stopping for lunch and finally making it to GrandPop Bruce and Grandma Heidi's around 1:30 p.m. Of course the boys walked in the door and immediately found the stairs. We don't have stairs in our house so those were a big hit and got a lot of use. Jumping down, up, on them, rolling the monster trucks down the stairs, testing out the Slinky Noah had brought with him, flying airplanes down them into the basement, etc. If it could be done on the stairs then it was done. If it shouldn't have been done on the stairs then it too was done. Grandma Heidi had to work that day so we hung out with Grandpop Bruce until later. He gave the boys a lesson on the guitar then promptly had to re-tune it because someone couldn't leave the tuning knobs alone - any guesses who that might be? Oliver especially loved getting the lesson and listening to GrandPop play. Bruce even let each of the boys have a turn playing. Another thing that the boys found was the computer chair - it spins! That poor chair had more spin used up this weekend then it has it's entire life. Don't worry though, Noah made sure that it still worked in it's proper and intended way. At some point during that first evening there, Noah showed off some of his new karate moves for GrandPop. Dad got to be the "bad guy" so Noah could show us what to do in case of an attack. We had fun and a nice time visiting that first day. Don't worry I have lots of other pictures to share, I just decided to break the trip up a bit....

Take that bad guy!

This is a picture of Oliver spinning on the chair.
What you don't see is Noah doing the pushing.

See, the chair is just fine.
