Memorial Day Weekend

 We headed to Kansas for Memorial Day weekend.  First we headed into Wichita for lunch with Granny, Grandad, Aunt Lisa and Uncle Mark (sorry no pictures).  Then it was on to Grandpa and Grandma's.  Can you guess what the girls wanted to do first thing?  Here they are breaking in the pool for the summer.

I think it had finally hit the girls that living in the apartment means less outside time.  When we were in Kansas they wanted to be outside the entire time.  We spent the rest of Saturday checking out Grandpa's garden, riding the lawn mower and just being outside.  The girls loved Grandpa's garden.  They got to dig potatoes and eat peas right off of the plant.  
On Sunday, Mike and Hadley got to experience a first, riding in a combine.  I was a little in shock that Mike had never been in one.  Jeff, Grandma Terry's brother-in-law, was harvesting close by so we all loaded up to check it out.  Jillian was not interested in riding because it was loud but Hadley loved it.

This cutie just wanted to watch from the van.  Then she got brave and walked down the dirt road to the bridge over the turnpike.  She really liked getting cars to honk at her.

We had to head back to Grandma and Grandpa's to get ready for the real reason we were in Kansas.  The Get Your Rear In Gear 5k.  It is the race we do in memory of my Uncle Doug.  Here are the girls getting a practice run in before we left.

This is most of the team.
Daddy and his girls.  I had to sit this race out.  It was a little too far from my doctor :)  I enjoyed watching everyone else.

Here are some race pictures.

It was a fun race and we can't wait for next year. 
It was a fun Memorial Day weekend.
