Road Trip

Last week Brooks and I made a trip down to Buhler, KS with my mom, sister, and her kids to see my grandparents.  It was a short trip, but it was fun to see family and let Brooks play with his cousins.  Brooks is still not impressed with the idea of playing with other kids, but by the end of the trip, he was tolerating it all pretty well.  He even let my great uncle Frank hold him the morning before we left! Here is a picture of Brooks, Katy, and Uncle Frank.
Brooks also has become a hungry little boy.  It seems he is always snacking on something!  He also knows that most of his snacks come from cardboard boxes.  Here he is showing Great Grandpa Reimer a box of graham crackers. 

 I think he walked away because Grandpa didn't give him one! :)
The first morning, Katy was inside taking a nap, so Brooks and Lane got some boy time outside.  They both liked the rocks, but I think they enjoyed playing in the dirt the best!

The balloons the kids got at Chile's were a big hit.  Brooks loved his!

Brooks did have a hard time with Katy invading his personal space.  Sometimes it just took her sitting beside him and he'd get upset.  In these pictures he had a reason since she snatched up his goat, but he'll have to learn to share.  And sorry the picture is fuzzy, but I think it explains it well!

Brooks is learning though, and he did actually play with both Lane and Katelyn sometimes without crying.  He just needs to learn to share and stand up for himself!

In all it was a fun couple of days, and we all enjoyed seeing Grandma and Grandpa again!
