Grandpa Mark has a special tradition with Austin.... Since Austin was born he has made a point to come over at least one night a week for a visit. It has turned into a Wednesday night routine. He comes after work and picks Austin up and takes him to dinner at Newks (a local restaurant here) and then they go for ice cream, paint pottery, run around the mall or check out all the pets at Petco. Every now and then they will let me, Hudson and Brad tag along. This week Brad was out of town for work on Wednesday night so Hudson and I were able to go with them on there adventures. The boys and I met Grandpa at Newks for some dinner. Grandpa lets Austin use 2-3 straws in his drink as you can see in the photo below. He also lets Austin shoot his straw rappers at people or across the restaurant. After dinner we headed over to an ice cream place for Austin's favorite "ice cream with sprinkles "(when he says it, it sounds more like "ice cream with pickles"). Hudson loves the ice cream almost as much as his big brother.
