Day in the Park

We headed to a mountain top for a family photo then down to sea level for a picnic in the park.
To say that the Babe had fun is an understatement - they all had a blast.

Okay, I'm not just taking photos of Babe, but...

How can't you not love all the little treasures he's experiencing for the first time. We spent all of Wednesday out at the beach and I took most pics with my big camera, not my phone and yesterday we hung out the house enjoying the sun and 60 degree temps.

Gotta See the Horses!

Babe has said the word horse about 50 times since our arrival 2 hours ago. So Nana and Grampa just had to take him out on his demand.

We're Here!

Check out Babe with his backpack and suit case running to the curb to wait for Grampa and Nana.

On our way

We will shortly be in the air for Round 2 of summer vacation. Babe gets his own seat and thinks his big stuff. He was happy to buckle up- we'll see how long that last.

Surprise Inside!

Before we left Tulsa, the Babe had a bloody nose that was repeatedly bleeding, which prompted a trip to the Urgent Care.
Up the right nostril was two teeny round legos, yep- legos up the nose.
Today - 2 WEEKS later - he put a tiny rock up his nose and when I retrieved it, I thought there was more.
Aunt Cream arrives home and retrieved yet another teeny Lego from his nose. OMG, it's likely been up there for three weeks!!!!!
Gonna have to make a trip to the doctors before flying to Washington to make sure he has clear nasal passages. Only Babe!

The Daily Trek

We have made countless trips between Aunt Cream's house and Mamaw and Papaw's. Today is our last day in KY, so I had to capture one. If we lived here there would definitely be a worn path between the two houses.

LG loves fireworks! It's something that he gets so excited about and something my family gladly will sit and watch and enjoy with him.
Last week we made our way to a local shop and laid down some serious cash for a lot of little fireworks! Bottle rockets, smoked bombs, jumping jack's, smoke bombs, little fountains, and more smoke bombs.
Aunt Cream and I are both logistical so we separated the loot into 7 equal piles on for each night remaining in our stay.
So each night after supper we have gathered on the porch at Mamaw and Papaw's for the evening show! Sman lights the fireworks and then Buddy cleans up the mess and so on while LG has a blast!
Buddy got this pic of me, enjoying the show! And yes, it was still light outside. We are all so tired from our fun in the sun, to wait til dark, plus it's just as fun to play with the smoke bombs and other things while its light.
I think it's safe to say, we are easily entertained!

Miss Mo

Cousin Mo has come down to spend a few days! They have swam, played Sleeping Queens, Buddy got stung by a bumble bee and played Badminton. Fun times!

Guess who made it to KY?

The Man got into town yesterday and is now on the farm with us tonight. We are so glad to see him after 2 weeks away.
Although seeing him is bittersweet. Our very, very good friend here in KY, Brad, lost his wife Thursday in a car crash.
We are very sad and will miss Rachel very much and ask that you remember Brad and their daughter in your prayers. They will have a very tough time dealing with this sudden and tragic lose in their lives.
The Man, Buddy and I were able to go to the funeral today and visit with the family.

Babe the Rockstar! 

Good Morning from the porch swing!

Our favorite place to be in KY- Mamaw and Papaw's porch swing. Love it! And so do the boys!

Local Baseball

The sun just went behind the stadium as we settle on our blanket for a perfect night of baseball!
Aunt Cream, Sman and Buddy having fun watching the game while Babe runs on the lawn!

Vacation in Kentucky

I just got blogger back on my iPhone so blogging can resume.
I've felt very guilty about not letting the family watch the boys grow, learn and have fun!
So I'm back.
The boys, especially LG, are enjoying daily swims in Aunt Cream's pool! He is such a fish!
