Now that we are nearing the end of a month long stay of our daughter Bre and our grandson's Coleman and Caden I can 't help thinking about all the fun we have had. We tried to capture as many memories on film as we could so that they could be shared with Kyle and our family. We feel so lucky to have had this time with all of them.

While the kids were here:
  • the boys went through a growth spurt practically eating us out of house and home
  • Cole learned to swim and started the beginnings of diving
  • Cade loved the pool and started the beginnings of swimming
  • both boys played a lot of golf with Papa
  • swam at a water park
  • we played at Bounce Jungle
  • fed ducks in the lake
  • played on the playground toys
  • ate ice cream cones and popsicles
  • got wet in the splash pad
  • ate pancakes and sausage every morning
  • drove the golf cart
  • Cole worked on math and learned to read
  • went to Arizona Science Center
  • watched lots of cartoons
  • went to a rodeo
  • grandkids peed in the rocks by the pool
  • helped Papa make smoothies
  • played with Hanna at her house
  • went out to eat...lots
  • spent a week in Vacation Bible School
  • got home haircuts
  • crawled in bed with Papa and Gigi every morning
  • laughed and made funny faces at the dinner table
  • tickled, wrestled, chased
  • ate popcorn
and so much more...........................................

For Frank and I it doesn't get much better then this. How lucky to have kids and grandkids who love us and want to spend so much time with us. A real blessing. I only hope that our grandchildren will remember this special month for years to come.
XOXO Nancy

Everyone looks so fabulous and happy! Glad you got to spend so much time with Bre and the boys...too bad Kyle couldn't be there to play too.

My parents (especially my mom) are SUPER excited to some see you all this summer! I keep telling her I'm going to stow away in her suitcase! :)

WOW! It looks like you have had such a blast. You are right- what a blessing that you are to each other! I have the best memories of my Grandparents & I am so thankful for that.
