During our Lewiston trip, we ventured up to Keuterville to have dinner with the Poxleitners. It was a relaxing, restful time after our whirlwind of baptismal events. Loretta made a delicious dairy-free meal and the rest of the gang played with Sam & Andie so our tired arms could have a rest. We didn't manage to get any pictures of Glen, who held a crabby Andie during dinner so we could eat in peace...but we really, really appreciated it!
Here's the crew:
You know Ellea, who loves babies. She still likes Andie, even after Andie had a blow out while Ellea was holding her. ("Mom, why is my hand wet?")And this is Nicole. She also took a turn bouncing Andie and chasing Sam. She likes babies, but likes dogs and horses even better. Who can blame her? Dogs and horses sleep through the night and that makes me like them better at this point, too.And this is Morgan. Morgan was so good to Sam. He shared his toys and was really patient when Sam wasn't very good at taking turns. Sam LOVED Morgan and Morgan's toys.
And, if that weren't enough fun and excitement, Loretta and Nicole brought out their horses to show Sam, even though it was raining. Sam both LOVED and FEARED the horses (most toddler emotions are pretty strong, even if they are opposing). Loretta showed Sam the horses tongue and teeth, which was probably the coolest thing he's ever seen in his short life. All the way back to Lewiston, he kept saying, "Mom? Tongue! Teeth!" and then making a horse sound. Sometimes, he would say, "BIG tongue! BIG teeth!" just to change things up.
