The Wonder of Grandparents

Saturday night, we drove up to Salt Lake to see an old friend of Jordan's. On the way up we drove by a horse trailer w/ a bunch of horses that Landon just loved watching and was just so sad to leave when we had to get off the freeway. But, not nearly so sad as when we got back on the freeway to come home - way past bedtime - and there were no horsies to see!  For about half an hour we tried anything we could think of but all we heard were cries and pleads for "neigh! neigh! neigh!" Finally, when Landon was getting really desparate (not to mention me!) Jordan called his parents and asked them to talk to Landon about the horsies for a minute and then... silence - wonderful silence! :) All the way back from about Lehi Landon listened, perfectly content w/ only just a few "uh-huhs" and "broom broom's" to say, but not another cry. Oh how grateful we were for this wonderful Grandpa and Grammi getting our boy calmed down in just a split second and giving us a drive home in peace!
