While the boys did incredibly well while we were there, Deacon decided he was ready to go long before Grandpa was. Grandpa graciously agreed to leave early, but unfortunately we weren't quick enough getting out and Deacon had a bit of a meltdown. We got everyone back home, fed them some lunch, put the boys down for naps, then Mom and Dad headed back on their own to finish up the museum.
After naptime we went for a little hike to Eagle River (since it's right across the street). While a bit muddy, it was a nice time. Many a rock was thrown (or skipped [or attempted to be skipped]), as were some sticks.
Then it was back to the house for dinner, baths, movie time, bedtime for the kids, game time for the adults (which actually took place during the rest of the naptimes and bedtimes - yay), and then bedtime for the adults.
SO, onwards we go. Wednesday afternoon went much like Tuesday afternoon only Josh did a little "fish fry" action for dinner. Yum. And the kids played in the yard. And that all for Wednesday.
After naps, we went to the playground at the local elementary school with Grandma (Grandpa stayed home a took a nap of his own). I had pulled pork going in the crock pot, so there was no worrying about getting home/staying home to make dinner. We had a good time at the park. There was an after school thing going on, so there were a bunch of big kids around for a bit. Zeke LOVED this and tried so hard to keep up with them, never realizing that he was being ignored (for the most part, one boy did see him there and gave him a high-five). Once the big kids left though, we had a great time climbing and sliding and swinging.
