The Blessings Of Multi-Generations
Brent's Grandmother Joachims was moving into an assisted
living facility in Oklahoma City and his mom was out to help so
we decided to drive up that way so that Sawyer could not only
see his Great Grandmother Joachims, but his Grandmother
Sheffield as well. While we were there we took a jaunt up to
Enid so that we caught some time with Great Grandmother
Sheffield - it was quite the trip.
Sawyer also had fun with his aunt and uncle Stephanie and
Craig respectively and especially with cousin Andrew who had
just gotten a new iPad - which Sawyer thought was a total hoot!
Andrew had an app that was a pond Sawyer could "splash" in
and a drum set he could "play."
As always, it was a great adventure where we saw "wild"
animals at a restaurant, and played "porter" at our hotel - not to
mention the fact that he got to sleep with Mom and Dad - first in
a kind sized bed, then in a full sized bed - not a lot of sleep but
some great cuddling!

out for this trip.
