After Manhattan, we once again (are you keeping track yet?) got in the car and headed somewhere new. This time we went to Grampa's (Aaron's dad's) house in Galva, Kansas for a few days.
The weather proved to be very Kansan (Kansas-y?) with temperatures over 100 every.single.day.
So we had to find lots of cool things to do. Like playing AND watching trains.
And splashing outside. Grampa didn't have a pool, but he did have this handy washing machine tray. A couple of inches of water proved to be the hit of the afternoon as we all needed to cool off from the heat & humidity. (And we were stir-crazy inside). Hannah liked to splash; Ben liked to put his feet in it and kick. FUN!
And playing with some vintage toys inside with the air conditioning cranked. Grampa dug out Daddy's and Uncle Jon's old Little People sets. They are much more fun than the contemporary ones, IMO, but maybe because I remember playing with similar toys. Grampa had a bus and a school and lots of people! I sort of wanted to bring these awesome vintage toys home to play with, but we left them in Kansas for future playing-with.

The visit with Grampa was so wonderful! B&H felt totally at home at Grampa's house and made themselves comfortable sitting at his coffee table coloring, running circles through the kitchen/living room area, and watching the trains out his patio door - definitely the favorite past-time
A few days later and it was time to move on. And guess what? We didn't even get a photo on Momma's camera with Grampa! (We did on Grampa's camera, though, so maybe we can get a copy of it to add here.)
Can you remember where we went after Galva? I already wrote a post about it. Guess, then find out here.
