Paw Paw's Birthday

 We celebrated Paw Paw's birthday this past weekend...a bit belated but no less fun! The boys packed their boots and were ready to jump in Paw Paw's truck as soon as go there to go get the eggs. Harper LOVED driving us to the chicken coop and told her Paw Paw several times "Me do it!" and "FASTER" while she drove. After checking out all the animals, feeding a few, and collecting eggs, we headed back to the house to for lunch before we headed to the creek for a swim. The kids always love "shopping" for food in Paw Paw's extensive pantry. :)
I didn't trust myself taking my phone to the creek, so we are without photo documentation of swimming...but we had a great time. Ethan had a blast swinging on the rope swing, and Harper and Owen pretty much hung on Paw Paw the whole time.

The bigger kids (Chris, Greg, Alyssa and Paw Paw) got a game of basketball in to wrap up the afternoon. And I got hooked up with about with over 100 fresh eggs and some wonderful veggies from Aunt Kerri's garden. I'm so thankful for the Hoyle family that keeps this city girl with a brown thumb well taken care of!

Happy birthday, Paw Paw! We love you!

This sounds so fun! Harper sounds like such a character. I wish we could get our girls together more often!
