Since the kids are on Fall Break all next week, we decided to take a little family vacation over the weekend. First stop, Matt's grandparents in Southern Illinois:
Chloe and AJ rake some leaves
Essie sweeps the front porch
Dad cleans the gutters
Scrubbing out the birdbath
Very proud of their hard work!
The raking done, it's time to have some fun!
Can you find three kids in that pile?
Dad demonstrates the proper technique.
Loading up the wheelbarrow
Chloe is eager to help drive.
A serious driver
Taking a break on the patio
AJ shows off some soccer skills
Chloe loves this big seashell
Tossing the football with dad
A little game of keepaway
The swingset doesn't have any swings anymore, but no matter.
Chloe with her namesake, Eva Chloe
Gigi turned 91 on Friday!
Great-grandpa took us around on a beautiful afternoon to visit the graves of some of our family members.
It's not everyday that you get to have your picture taken with Jesus.
