Reed was immediately swept away by his grandparents and aunt (lucky kid). We are so blessed to be surrounded (like 10 minutes away surrounded) by both my family and Jacob's family. It is a rare thing these days, right? So you will hear A LOT about all of my family members. But let me take a moment to introduce you to Cha-cha (Jacob's mom), Poppy (Jacob's step-dad), and Aunt B (Jacob's sister). The love and excitement they show at any chance to see Reed (or his parents, I guess- wink- parents, you know what I'm sayin') is breathtaking. I mean, Aunt B traveled like 40 minutes across town at 8 1/2 months pregnant just to see her nephew for an hour. That's love!
He dove in to the float too quickly and got a major brain freeze. It was so cute. He just opened his eyes and mouth really wide for a couple of seconds and then smiled and took another big drink.
There was a playground behind the stand that was most definitely the brilliant idea of a parent of a root-beer-float-eating kid. After watching Reed eat like half of a root beer float in under two minutes, we resolved to visit the playground regardless of weather conditions. We played for about 15 minutes, or until all of us except Reed were freezing.
