Fun at the Frede's

The trip to Missouri was a quick one, but we just had to show off Aiden to his Grandpa Frede.
My Grandma with Aiden.
Grandpa with his 3rd grandson.
Grandpa with 3 out of 4 of his grandchildren. Amanda hadn't gotten out of the hospital with Emma yet, so we couldn't get a picture with all of them. Next time we are in town it will be done. :-)
The boys always love going to visit their Grandpa. There are horses and ducks to feed, a pond, and lots of area to run around. Oh, and we almost always get Jello Poke Cake fed to us! After leaving one time, Austin said, "Grandpa is a pretty good guy! I like him!" I know my Dad would have loved to hear that!
We didn't get to spend as much time there as we wanted, but with the wedding and everyone else to visit, we had to go. I later learned we had just missed one of my uncles and cousins. Oh, and I was a tad disappointed to learn that we missed the big apple butter weekend by one week. This is when a lot of the family comes over and makes a HUGE thing of apple butter. In case you think it's just a pot you put on the stove or something, this is a picture that I stole from my cousin of the jars and jars of apple butter they made. You can see in the background that there are even more jars on another table (the white stuff is wax that they put on top). I'm not even completely sure how much they made since I wasn't there! :-( Maybe next time!
