We traveled to Wyoming over the 4th of July weekend to visit Granddaddy. Our trips to Wyoming have been eventful to say the least.When we went 4 years ago Madeline was in an accident at the parade, broke her arm and had emergency surgery…..while I stayed the night at the hospital with her John David was back at the house with a stomach bug with Hank….fun times. We survived and made it home in one piece though one person had some pins to hold her together:)
We had higher hopes this year and it was much more enjoyable than 4 years ago! Other than some issues with Madeline we still laughed a lot. I think Carly and I won the “dumb things said award”! I will get Hank to add the comments since I can’t even remember them they were so dumb…but we laughed alot!!
Here are a few of them….
While driving by hayfields in Wyoming Hank asked the kids to guess the weight of the round bales of alfalfa hay in the fields and John David guessed 2 tons. Carly said, “No way they weigh 2 tons. They might weigh 5000 pounds or so but not 2 tons”. Having some trouble with conversions perhaps?
An Asian couple was watching the girls in the airport while our flight was delayed and began talking to us and asking about the girls. Hank asked the lady where she was from and she said “Singapore”. Right then, Janie raised her hand and said, “hey what about me, where am I from?”. As if we haven’t told her.
While waiting for our flight, I asked the girls if they needed to go to the bathroom before we boarded. Madeline didn’t seem to be paying attention so I asked her again if she needed to go. She paused and got this funny look on her face and said, “no, I just tried and couldn’t so I don’t need to”. Wow…..good thing she didn’t need to.
Now remember I was casted then as I am now so I did not even think about bringing my camera seeing at that requires 2 hands. I should have gotten my cast signed by all the locals in Wyoming and Ohio! So here is my photo dump!!!
love this pic of these two!!!
