A Trip to Remember

We were not able to attend church last Sunday because went down hoopie (that's how my father calls the place where he grew up). It wasn't planned and I just wish that we could have leave earlier than 12 noon. I thought that convincing my Dad to go with us was impossible, but with my wife's convincing power, he did went with us. The kids were pretty good even though the drive was a bit long, they just entertain themselves by playing and eating their snacks.

This place here is a very old one that we used to stop by whenever my Dad and I and some friends would go hunting then. I was surprised that it's still operating till now.

It's been a long while since my father visited his old place so maybe that's why he went with us. We stopped by his parent's grave on the way to see his youngest sister.
He introduced the kids to their great grandparents. Now when EJ is getting bored, he would say "I want to go down hoopie" lol. We got to see some big far with animals like horses, goats, chicken, and cows. You might have seen some of the photos already at my wife's blog.

I'll post some more photos next time as we took tons of them. Have a great Sunday everyone. I'm off to bed since it's almost 12.

Your kids are so very disciplined and behaved.

It is so sweet to travel down memory lane.

Enjoy your Sunday, and thanks for your post at OWM.
