We spent this past weekend with Bo’s Dad and step mom in Georgia. They moved there about a year ago and this was our first visit. They have a beautiful new home that is now officially broken in! Bo’s sisters joined us along with Jennifer’s husband Ryan and Kerri’s little boy, Gabriel. He is also 2 and he and Andrew play really well together.
We started Saturday morning with a ride around the neighborhood in the convertible. It is a 1970’s Cutlass. It is super cute. The boys loved it! Andrew kept saying “no top on dis car!” We took it to Wal Mart later that morning and I kind of felt like a celebrity.
It was an absolutely beautiful day…one perfect for flying. Lucky for us, Gdada has an airplane. He took Kerri, Ryan and Jennifer up while the boys took their naps. Then it was our turn. I have never been in a little plane like that, but it was a lot of fun and I was never scared. (I had some serious anxiety about going up but after grilling Gdada on the number of hours he has under his belt and interviewing family members, I decided he was OK… Oh, and he is a Colonel in the US Air Force) The boys were super cute sitting in the front seats prior to take off. They did great once we got up in the air too. It was a beautiful day and a very smooth flight.
"What? No in-flight movie?"
See you later everybody...

AMK and Gdada
We got home and prepared for a big steak and baked potato dinner. Andrew played outside and in Gdada’s old truck. He loved “driving” it.
Later that night Andrew and Gdada played guitars together. I think this is the first time Andrew has really ever had his hands on a REAL guitar. He could have played it all night. He would strum a little then say to Gdada~ “your turn!”Singing "Won't Back Down" by Tom Petty
As much as Andrew is into music, Gabriel is into trains. Lucky for him, Gdada also has some electric train sets. I bet Gabriel watched it go around about 100 times! He was so patient while it was being put together. It was so magical to him. Gabe was focused in on it and the whole house could have burned down around him and he never would have known.
We had a great visit and can’t wait to go again…soon! Thanks for everything (especially the Wiggles gee-tar!) We love you guys
We were pulling up to his school the other day and had this conversation:
