At the beginning of this year Brett and I made a resolution to visit his father, Steve more often so that he could see the kids and we could be better about staying in touch.
Since then Brett has been taking monthly (or sometimes more than once a month) trips up to Damascus with the boys. I have taken a few trips with them, but usually this is a way for them to have some male bonding and I stay home. Brett has also done this when I am out of town, sick or just needed a morning to clean the house!
These trips are a high light of the weekend whenever Brett goes. Steve is absolutely wonderful with Peter and Aaron and they always have a really good time playing at the house with Steve's dogs or going to the park near his house.
Here are a couple pictures from a recent trip:
