A weekend retreat

This last weekend, we went to my mom and dad's to celebrate my nephew's 4th and my niece's 11th birthday. I think my boys are the luckiest boys alive to get to spend time at this place:

    Angie,

    Great pictures, I love the time out and partners in crime, they most certainly are when they are together. Mom told me today that Logan told her they were under the deck throwing mud onto the bottom patio this past weekend. Where do they find time to do this when we are not looking. Kids. They have a blast together though that is for sure. Where are the pictures of you?????? Ha Ha
