Micah was up bright and early the next morning and surprised us by heading upstairs by himself to hang out with his Great-Grandma. When I came up I found her painstakingly setting up rows of dominos for Micah to knock down:
Erik's Grandpa is quite elderly and requires full-time care from Grandma. But even though he is fairly immobile and doesn't speak much, we could still see the sparkle in his eyes as he watched the kids play and as I showed him some recent pictures. He even surprised Keziah a couple of times by reaching out quickly to try and catch her as she ran past his chair :)
It was another beautiful (hot) day. The kids had lots of fun playing outside:
Silas enjoyed a day's break from his car seat and he gave his Great-Grandma some big smiles.
Micah got to talk with his Grandma Toews on the phone and let her know how much fun he was having.

After our break in Herbert, it was back on the road to Manitoba. I snapped these shots as I fed Silas somewhere on the side of the road in Saskatchewan.
We love the prairies!!!
