What a nice day we spent w/ our families.. The little ones must have been extra tired, because they slept well past our “need to be up & getting ready for church” time, so Erik & I caught up on a sermon online that we had missed. We spent time outdoors enjoying the summer weather, Erik concocted a couple new pork loin marinades for the grill.. His parents came down for a visit, and my dad and step-mom were over too.
The kids love seeing their grandparents..
Of course you should also look in grandpa’s ears w/ a flashlight… Just in case;
I peeked into the kitchen to see Rowen happily helping Grandma Anna make her tea.. He likes to slurp a little off of the spoon.. lol
Ashlyn had made a few special items for daddy at preschool;
Then all of the kids gave him a gift;
The little ones looooove to play on Grandma Anna’s iPhone & iPad. She always has new games for them to try out;
The meat Erik grilled for us was fantastic… Nice work, honey! We were able to sit outside to eat.. We absolutely love having the deck that overlooks our yard & golf course. It’s an amazing view, and we definitely don’t take it for granted.
I love these pictures we got of the kids w/ both of their grandpas. This is my dad (Papaw) w/ the kids;
And my father-in-law (Grandpa Gare-bear) w/ the kids;
Erik & his dad;
I’m super in love w/ this pic of my dad & I;
And my fil is actually smiling! Whatdya’ know;
And since the weather was so gorgeous, we played around outside for a bit in the driveway.. See why I can’t say no to this little guy? Those baby blues get me every time!
My two men… <sigh> I sure do love them;
And who is this we have?! Oh, it’s Kaylor! The anti-camera girl.. I sure wish she’d let me photograph her more often.. She’s gorgeous!
Ashlyn scared the bageezes out of us.. She stood up & turned around to us, and it looked like she had blood all over her face. She wasn’t crying and we asked her what happened. She had her face buried in a tiger lily to smell it, and it was pollen. Silly, silly girl… lovvvvves her flowers!
