If you asked my kids what their favorite part about visiting Grandma and Grandpa Lebo was, they would both quickly answer the same thing: THE BARN! From the minute we pack up the car, buckle up, and head north, Scotty and Brady both get antsy for the same thing. How long until we get there? Will it still be set up the same way? Can we play right away? The questions and longings are always the same.
And sure enough, whenever we arrive, the kids barrel out of the car and head right up into Grandpa's old barn. And there, on the second floor, in a space just for them, it is all still there, set up just the way they left it. There on the rug, and on the tables, and on the chairs, are the same Fisher Price toys that their father played with over 40 years ago. There are the building blocks that their grandfather played with over 60 years ago. And there is the place where our kids escape to morning after morning, every day that we spend here.
I loved spending this particular morning up there with them, when even little Mikey joined in for some fun. He was quick to realize that great times are ahead for him too, and seemed to jump right in with his older brother and sister. It was a great morning and I'm so glad I have these images to show the kids for years and years, and perhaps to show their kids someday when they're playing with them too!
