A Weekend in Smith Center

Last weekend we took a much overdue trip to Smith Center to see Blake's side of the family.  Blake and I have been so busy with the store that we hadn't been back since Christmas, so it was time.  There wasn't much on the schedule for the weekend, which was nice!  We just spent time with both of his Grandparents, went to church, and took a trip out to Grandad Lambert's farm.  I had only seen the farm from the road and Blake hadn't been inside the old house since his grandparents moved to town in 95, so he was excited to go inside and reminisce about the many memories he had out there.  I don't have any pictures of us going out to the farm, but maybe next time!  Here are some of the other pictures from the weekend.

Brooks got to hear Great-Grandad Burgess read him a story

Four generations of Burgess boys!
Great-Grandma Burgess and Cheyenne had to get in a picture too!
Granddad Burgess wanted one with me too before we left
Brooks had a good time playing with Grandma Burgess this time...he hasn't really gotten to just play with her for a long time because Christmas was a busy time and whenever they came to visit us here in York, we've been busy with store stuff or other was good to have some quiet time with nothing else going on! 
He really enjoyed the rocking horse...I think cousin Pearl and Brooks might have to learn the concept of sharing next time we are all there together because I know she loves that horse too!

Brooks actually took a couple naps with Grandma this time, but he was still stubborn at bedtime and wouldn't have anything to do with anyone rocking him but his mommy.  He also wasn't a fan of sleeping in the pack-and-play, so of course I had to once again have him sleep beside me in bed.  One of these times he's gonna need to learn he can sleep somewhere other than his crib and with mommy! 
Brooks had fun playing with Grandpa Burgess too :)
 We went over to Grandad Lambert's for supper on Saturday night and had to get a picture of the 4 generations of Lamberts too!
I think in this one Brooks saw Mya (Grandad's little dog) jump onto the other couch.  Brooks just loves animals!
A little play time with Daddy
 He loves to be tossed in the air...
 and dogs...

We had a good time seeing family and having a weekend away for once.  We hope to get back a couple more times this summer so Brooks can meet his new Lambert cousins Kansas and Emma!  Looking forward to it!
