It sounds a little nuts, but it actually wasn’t bad.
The trick is to realize everything revolves around this tiny person.
We left the house at about 4:00 am because Greyson will sleep (usually) from about 3:30am to 6:30am. We stopped an hour and a half later for a nursing/changing diaper pit stop. Then were back on the road. All in all having a new baby in the car added about one hour to the commute.
Once we were in Sonoma, we stopped at Whole Foods to pick up some delicious healthy snacks, drinks, and a not so healthy cheese danish. 😉
When we arrived at the ranch, Grandpa was working in the driveway, and Grandma was in the house. She didn’t hesitate to hold her new great grandbaby of course. 😉 Greyson loved his Grandma! He sat and looked at her, cooed, and took in all of the new sights. Around lunchtime Grandma and I went to the Glen Ellen Village Market to pick up some sandwiches for everyone.
Greyson stayed with his dad and great grandpa. When we got back, Grandma and I chatted in the house for a bit before the boys realized we were back. When they caught us peeking at them from up in the house, we brought lunch down to the patio and all sat around the table.
I shared half my sandwich with Grey, and Grandpa shared half his sandwich with me. Grandma passed around her Arizona ice tea while Greyson unbuttoned his pants to make more room. 😉 Grey wandered around the vineyard tasting grapes and questioning Grandpa about the different varieties.
Then we all headed out to the garden. I’m not quite sure how he does it, but my grandpa always has the best garden—this in year in particular. He has different varieties of squash, blackberries,tomatoes, pumpkins, green beans, kale, greens, etc. We harvested tomatoes, green beans, pepper, grapes, corn, onions, etc.
After working around in the summer heat, Greyson was ready to go back to dreamland, so he borrowed Grandma and Grandpa’s bed for a quick little catnap. Of course, Grandma and I both couldn’t stop snapping pictures!
Greyson loves his great grandparents, and I love that he was able to meet them, and visit my favorite place in the entire world–the ranch. Grandparents are the best…especially mine. (I’m not biased at all, by the way.) 😉
