Mom and Dad are sticking around for a while, to help watch Keira while Casey & Rob are still at the hospital with Natalie and to enjoy a little summer fun with the grandkids. Here's a glimpse at what we've been doing.
Ooooo back massages!
A nice relaxing Adult Pool Trip - a treat to be there without a slippery kid hanging on you! Every summer Fiona and I plan a resident pool outing. They love it! Only a handful get in the water, but they really enjoying sitting poolside.
Concerts in McIlvoy Park (next to Lillian's New School)
Story Time & Snuggles
And fancy picnic table dinners
Lillian and Holden set the picnic table up this way and wanted to have a private dinner. Jak obviously didn't want to be left out!
The little boy who owns this Doggy Raft was unable to balance on the back. Everytime he got on the raft would flip over and he would be dunked under water. But Jak jumped right on and rode that puppy like a champ. Is bull riding in his future?
Lillian practiced a couple of times with Daddy and picked up bike riding like a champ!
Now Daddy gets to "workout" helping Jak learn....poor Mike, it looks like a lot of work running up and down the cul-de-sac.
The 1100 miles Grammy & Opa drove to get out to Colorado took their toll on Opa's car. Good thing he has a helper to wash off the dust.
The kids are starting to ask me to set up craft projects for them. Our art wall is looking good!
Grammy and Lillian "Fishing" for the alphabet, a game Grammy brought for Jak, but it looks like it will be fun for the whole family.
Looking at the trees through a telescope offers a whole new perspective!
Some back seat love between toddlers!
Watching the Stapleton children's production of "The Wizard of Oz".
