Free Range Boys

Living in a warehouse has many advantages. One of the biggest downsides though is not having a "real" yard. We make do with our front porch area, safely fenced off & complete with fake grass thanks to Daddy. But there really is nothing like letting little boys roam free-range around a really big yard. Thankfully we have Camp Grandma not too far away! Uncle Ed, Aunt Erin & Cousin Dylan are in town so we drove up Sunday to hang out & play. Whenever we arrive it is only a matter of time before one of the boys asks to go see the chickens... usually it's Remy wanting to gather the eggs. The boy loves eggs. So off we go to visit the chickens...

Should I be worried he brought his club?!?
Quinn giving me "the look" after I tell him he can not feed his hat to the chickens...
Grandma & Uncle Ed...
The boys have a great time picking up apples to feed to the chickens...


Then it's back to porch-sitting & pool-splashing. Love this shot of Remy & Dylan... they look so much alike sometimes & so very different at other times.
This one makes me think I can see what he will look like as a young man...


The elusive G'ma captured on film...

Can't wait to go back to camp Grandma this weekend!

Katie, Grammy camp is the best! You should know I raised my 3 kids in a tiny 2-bedroom apartment with a 4x10ft deck. We did a lot of swimming and took daily walks to the park. Everyone turned out just fine. I think it was mostly me and my dream of a big yard for my kids that was most disappointed. The kids knew no different so this was their normal. They can live anywhere as long as they have a mama and daddy who love them to death every single minute!!! Thanks for a view into your world...it's amazing and you are so blessed.
