Kiddos and I recently spent another week in my hometown. These visits are always a 24/7 lovefest between grandparents and grandchildren, which is exactly why we do these extended trips. Henry and Eleanor got spoiled while I relaxed and swam in the neighbor’s pool. I had a nice lunch at a favorite pizza place with childhood friend Tara. We took the kids to Dairy Queen for the first time, which might not seem like a big deal, but when you’re from a small town, the DQ is a BIG DEAL. It was where we celebrated after almost every school event and little league game. So of course I had to snap a few photos of their first DQ soft-serve.
