at the in-laws

I have been able to spend two days this week at my in-laws house. Today I had both my young nephews with me. They have never been to a place like this. It reminded me of some of my favorite things about their place:

1. five acres seems like a really big yard to a city kid

2. even kids can drive the tractor (riding lawn mower)

3. kids get to experience a little "danger" in a safe environment

4. fishing in a pond catching little perch is exciting for city boys

5. getting good and dirty

6. run around without a nagging mom (or aunt) right be hind you all the way

7. sliding down a fire pole from the loft in the barn

8. learning about plants in the area

9. they have some beautiful new bamboo

10. getting a little "pampered" in my older nephew's words
