Spring Break in Kansas 1

For spring break, we drove down to Lawrence, Kansas to visit the Grandparents Cowles. Here are some of my favorite pictures from our visit.

Poppa and Grammy have a piano and Wesley and Claire spent a lot of time pounding away at the keys.

Lessons with Poppa (and Baby)

Playing outside with Grammy.

'Grocery shopping' in the neighborhood

Walking her Baby and Grammy's Easter bunnies

Wesley was "patiently" waiting his turn.

Loving the piano.


Planting flower seeds with Grammy.

We brought these home and are going to grow them up for Wesley's teachers.

While in Kansas, we took a trip to Deanna Rose Farmstead with a high school friend of Daddy's. The kids loved it!

Claire wasn't so sure about the cows but didn't want to leave the barn.

Jamming on the cow bell display.

The farm had this big pen full of baby goats. I think there were probably around 30 goats just in this pen. They sold bottles of milk for $1 so Wesley got to try feeding the goats.

He was nervous about the greedy goats surrounding him (which he saw happen to another kid) and started eyeing any other goat that came by.

The second goat bumped out the first.

Here comes a third standing on the back of the second one.

When the fourth came by, Wesley gave up.

Daddy had to finish off the feeding when the goats started standing up to get the bottle.

They also had a great toy riding tractor collection. Here's Claire trying her hand at riding one.

Wesley smiling for the camera as he rolls by.

The race is on! The boy on the green tractor is Charles' friend's son.

The farm also had this huge playground which the kids loved.


Wesley and Aiden went down this slide over and over again.

Running for another ride on the slide.
