Christmas, Part 3: Nana & Granddad's House

Our first stop was Nana & Granddad's house in Western Kentucky.  We always have fun visiting their house, and this time was no exception!  Here are some of the things we got into.

Since we discovered a love for coloring on plain notebook paper in the car, Granddad gave him a pencil and a pad of paper, and Elias sat as his desk and colored!  How cute is this??  Notice this Dr. John S Tapp nameplate...  Looks good in front of our Dr. Elias John Tapp, doesn't it?!  ;)

Nana & Granddad have a whirlpool bathtub at their house, so Justin had the idea that Elias might like taking his bath in it.  In fact, He. Loved. It.  Major fun times here!!

Also, Granddad has gotten a new four-wheeler since we visited last, so Granddad took Elias out on it, and that was big fun!
In the video, you can see that Granddad starts out slow on the driveway, and then takes him off-road a little.  I left in the end of the clip, because you can hear Mommy's nervous laugh when Granddad takes him through a big dip.  I'm such a weenie when it comes to mothering a boy!!  Then it was Daddy's turn to take Elias!  They had big fun!
Then one day we went into the city of Paducah just to explore a bit.  We ate lunch at a neat seafood place called Whaler's Catch, then explored downtown a bit.  They have a railroad museum, which we didn't go in, but we did enjoy the real train they have outside!
Honestly, I had no idea trains were this big in real life!  Elias still talks about the train in Paducah.  A dream come true for that little guy!
