A Saturday With Brooklyn

Weekends are so worth the sometimes long week it takes to get there. We needed to run up to the lake for a "mow and go" on Saturday, so went over and got Brooklyn to spend the day. She is SUCH a grandpa's girl and would run from door to window to door to keep an eye on him while he mowed the lawn. At one point I thought she was going to have the big one because I wouldn't let her outside with him while he was mowing, but she got past it and seemed to enjoy the running back and forth inside.

After the yard work was finished we took her on her first ride on the Ranger. At first she was a bit unsure and would put her hands out to touch us when we would go around a corner. But after only a few minutes she just put her hands on her knees and her nose in the air and enjoyed it.

Quite a routine before we could actually ride. It was HOT on Saturday, so she had to help me get her sunscreen on, then her hat (one of my mom's old ones that has been left at the lake) and sunglasses and finally she had to be involved in the spreading of the towel on her seat so it wouldn't be so hot for her.

We rode around a bit, then stopped at the little neighborhood store and got a pint of vanilla ice cream. Back at the house she was quite the busy body helper as she set the bowls out for us all and then went to get spoons. I really think everything she does is quite adorable. :)

On the way back home we stopped at a Subway in a small town and I got her a kids meal. Obviously grandmas do not know everything because I thought she'd enjoy the apples. But Subway does not peel the apples before slicing them like McD does and B thought that was highly offensive. ;) She did figure out how to eat the slices kind of like an ear of corn though and was able to not eat any of the peel.
Very good times.....
