The kids have had fun playing outdoors at their Nana and Grandpa’s over the past month. My mom has taken some really cute pictures of their outdoor fun.
Sadly, I can say I don’t ever remember myself or Jamie—ok, just Jamie, I don’t do yard work:-)--ever raking up a pile of leaves and letting the kids just have fun in it. Well, my dad did! They also enjoyed helping Grandpa “rake” leaves.
I LOVE this picture of Joe! It captures his childhood innocence, and you can tell he is just plain happy! LOVE IT!
Another good picture of Joe.
Of course, an outdoor adventure wouldn’t be complete for Hanna without a critter hunt….
….and a cat.
Jack discovered how to swing on his stomach like his big brother. He,too, looks so very happy in this picture. I love his sweet smile and baby face. He is such a handsome boy:-)!!
Jack loves his suitcase Nana got him for his spend the nights, so he could of course, have one like big brother’s. I just love my dad’s fashion statement with the athletic socks and shorts—a signature for him, such a familiar sight for me.
A trip to Nana’s wouldn’t be complete without dress up fun. My dad has been wearing this same silly hat—the kids make him and he happily obliges—since Hanna was a toddler.
I love writing and recording these memories of my children. Looking at the pictures and going back, rereading old entries—which I enjoy doing from time to time—helps me to remember how very blessed I am.
