At Papa's house...

While we were in Minnesota...we went and STAYED at my parents house. That was the plan from the beginning, because it's just too hard to constantly pack up and move from house to house and city to city. This was so nice and relaxing to just be at one place and not do all the running around. My parents are both home all the time, and it was GREAT for Klous & Aysha to be able to play and spend time with them. They live on 20 acres in a little town called Swan River, MN...which is 20 miles out of any "big" city...(which is only like 8,000 people maybe)...so it's not a really BIG city!!
Anyways...it was nice growing up out there...ya it was a "LONG DRIVE"...but not really...we figured since we were coming all the way from Utah...it wouldn't hurt to have people come to us!! So that's what we did!!
When we got there, Klous was so fascinated that there were NO fences..."Mommy...Papa's house has NO fences"...that was cute...he could just run free...play baseball...jump on the trampoline...ride his bike...and do whatever he wanted!!!
These pictures are from when we first got there...I think the kids were just happy to be OUT of the car!!! Aysha watched while the boys played baseball!!
Klous liked to go for walks too...I looked out one morning and Daddy & Klous were on top of the woodpile...how cute are these pictures!!!

Papa has a 6-wheeler too...Klous didn't want to go for rides with Papa (???don't know why???) but he'd go with Mommy or Daddy...so here's Mommy driving and Daddy in the back with Klous...
We went to the gravel pit to get some rocks for Klous...

Then headed to the lake so he could throw them...
He's such a boy!!!
It was SOO nice and relaxing to be out there in the middle of no where...to just listen to the quietness!!! You forget what that's like when you live in town!! Thanks Mom & Dad for letting us stay there and letting Klous PLAY!!! I know I'm grateful you have that place and the peace and quiet that is out there!!!

Next time you go, can we go with you? It sounds like so much fun! I love the pictures. Sounds like another great trip back home.

What an awesome place for outdorsey stuff. Looks like you had a ton of fun! (I'm glad you're back though!)

Your piece of land out there is really nice. Is the gravel pit part of their property too? Looks like you had a great time in the country and with family.

How fun! Looking at the pictures makes me want to be at the farm with my grandparents. The ease of life is such a nice retreat from the hustle and bustle of the life we have. It will be so nice to get up there and just let the kids roam free. I just hope that it is warm enough to ski. I think it has been 3 years since I went water skiing. Yay for MN country life!
