Ever since we got back from MN, Chris has been talking about building a swing set just like the one my dad built for the grandkids. So, he did it. It's a much smaller version of it, but it works great and the kids love it. It's a nice upgrade for the girls. Great job Chris! We all thank you very much.

Minnesota Vacation

We went to MN on June 12th and came back to TN on June 17th. We had a fantastic time!!! It was so great to see everyone and just hang out. We spent a lot of time in the yard with the kids. Grama and Grampa had a lot of activities for us to do. We never got bored.

Skyler and Katie showing off their butts.

Skyler getting kisses from Max (the McDonald's dog).

The kids checking out some loot they got.

Hunting for some eggs.

We spent a lot of time playing in the sandbox.

And we had a lot of fun on the zip line. RUN ERICA RUN!!!!


Grampa had one baby kitty that we had to visit every day.

And Grampa had some lambs, too.

We swung a lot all weekend.

The four youngest grandkids. L to R - Skyler, Lauryn, Katie & Sophie.

Tractor rides for the grandkids.

The little ones had fun in the wagon.

I think you need someone else to teeter-totter with.

Riding the horsey.

Some random pictures.

This is my favorite picture from the weekend. Erica and her girls. So cute and so typical of Erica!

A magician came to Alana's daycare today. She got to be his assistant and he made her a special wand. All the kids got balloon hats. She had a great time.

We are all packed up to go to Minnesota tomorrow! We sure can't wait to see everyone!

Hope everyone has a great week!

We got the sprinkler out for the first time this weekend. Alana had a blast. Skyler wasn't too sure about the water, but she got used to it after a bit. We need to go find her a cute swimsuit. I can't believe we don't have one for her yet.

Alana liked sticking her butt in the water.

Skyler pulled out a couple of pairs of Alana's underwear out of a clothes basket and she was wearing them on her head. It was hilarious! It went on for about 15 minutes. I think she thought they were headbands. She is going to regret these pictures when she grows up.
