The iPad is always with us, and always a favorite activity of the kids, but this trip we wanted to make sure we did more.
The kids weren't the only ones spending time on the computer, me and my Dad working away.
Check out the Amish horse and buggy. We saw them all over town while we were there. This one was headed to Lowe's or the mall.
it was Nannie and Aunt Laura!
The next morning they came back and cleared more snow.
Aunt Laura took a turn at the most fun activity, washing dishes. With 8 people in a house even with paper plates there always seemed to be dishes to do.
Another activity I remember doing as a child, ice skating at the Forum. For all of us to rent skates, walkers and have 2 hours of ice skating was only $25. Compared to Oslo prices it was so nice to have reasonable prices for activities.
Yes, Jon won, and I was not happy about that.
Look at that snow coming down.
On the day of the big snow storm Jon, Laura, Marilyn and the kids all went out to play. When you have that many people you get creative on how everyone can have fun. This is a snow mobile with 3 people on the front and three sleds being pulled behind. You could hear the laughter all the way across the field.
We got to lots of snuggling, me with 2 of my men.
Snuggles with Nannie were a big part of the trip.
Addie was such a big girl, she held Arthur even though he is almost as big as her.
Lots of fun special times!
