Happy Birthday Parties

Every month is a celebration. There's a Birthday this month for a growing 5 year old. I gave him a surprise party with balloons, cake, ice cream and gifts when he and his dad stopped by the Saturday before his bday day. It was just us and he was surprised. 

Then a real Birthday pool party shared with his cousin who has the Birthday. 

Happy Birthday Cohen!

More Wedding Pictures

March 4th was the wedding day for our youngest son and his new bride. I posted the "I Do" pictures/post a few weeks back. And here's a few more. 

A photo booth got everyone into the pictures. Attach one strip to the photo album for the bride and groom and one to keep for yourself. 

Late nite on the dance floor made for sleepy little ones. 

Everyone had a dance partner for a moment.

The one who caught the bouquet gave it to this one.

Happy 3 month anniversary!!

Red, White and Blue Day

Memorial Day was for remembrance of those who sacrificed for our freedom. We honored them with the Pledge Allegiance and our own rendition of the National Anthem acapella while RVing for the holiday weekend. 

We made good use of the splash pad and the pool.

And a lot of time on the giant water slide. 

 There was a Memorial Day golf cart parade, bike riding, and good nights of sleep with everyone being so tired by the end of the day.

The Graduate

Love, love, love this Pre K4 Graduate. 

Love watching him grow and learn and experience so much. 

Loved celebrating with him and his parents and his other grandparents.

T-Ball Entertainment

T-ball games are the best. Kids are totally themselves and Cohen surely doesn't disappoint. 

He hits pretty good. 

He's got the running bases thing down pretty well while giving us a smile as he runs by.

And they rotate positions infield and outfield. 

And he throws in some pretty funny actions to keep us entertained. 

He's a ball player all the way. 

Great days spent at the ball park.

just because

Weekends are made to do something. Like a weekend away in the RV as camping season gets in full swing with perfect weather a few weekends ago. 

Day time filled with hikes, bike rides, and outdoor games and cookouts. Nite life with campfires and glow sticks. 

Happy camping to us.

More Spring Break Days

With my sprained ankle, we managed to pull off some decent playtime in the woods. 

Everyday we went on a "hunt" as they called it. Riding in the trailer behind the four wheeler. 

And stopped along the trail at the guys hunting houses to inspect. 

The walkway changed colors over the day with sidewalk chalk. 

Spent some of everyday swinging high. But , oops, but one did fall out once. No injuries, just some tears. 

Once we built a campfire and cooked our hotdogs and marsh mellows for dinner. 

And we pretend camped, with one asleep. 

Spring break is almost to an end. 



Spring Break

I fulfilled my mawmaw duties for a few days on spring break. We picked them up on Tuesday and brought them home with us for three days. Took them
back on Thursday and I stayed over on  Friday. 

To fill our days we first stopped in on the great grandma. The youngest of the generation visits the oldest generation. They were happy to oblige for pictures. 

Great Grandma shared her left over Easter basket candy with them. 

The little ones were very entertaining to her. 

Lunch time was upon us and gave us a good excuse to say our goodbyes and head out.

Start of Spring

I had spring fever for sure. I wanted to spring spruce up the yard. Start house spring cleaning. Maybe a veggie garden. Easter has come and gone. And I did none of the aforementioned.

Instead we did a short, close to home spring camping trip to a new RV resort about an hour away from home and met the kid campers. It's going to be the bomb for summer stays. There's the kiddie pool area, adult pool area, kiddie play ground, pool side grill restaurant, kayaking, paddle boarding, a lazy floating river pool, and who knows what else. It's a big place. 

 Bad news - all week the weather reports were calling for severe thunder storms for our schedule. We didn't give in. We went hoping for the best.  Tho, the weather was on and off, we managed to get some fun in between the two rain storms with tiny hail once. 

Bike riding filled our time mostly since the pools weren't weather friendly yet. 
I clicked right at 7,000 steps on the first day as bike ride monitor. 

We definitely will make this a summer-go-to favorite.
