Papa and Grandma Visit Part 1

Well, this will probably be picture overload, but that seems to be my style lately. I just get it all done at once! I have decided to be more purposeful in life (very long story) and I would like to get back on track with blogging. Do more craft/project posts, photography posts, and family updates. I feel so behind in everything that my attitude is "why even try?" I start one thing and get interrupted and then start another. My brain has never been so forgetful or ...i guess just gone! Not sure if it has to do with the third child, but I know life has changed and I need to catch back up. I haven't been the friend, or family-member that I need or want to be. I get frustrated at myself for not doing something and once I remember it I still don't get it done! AHHHH! Anyways...long rant. I have a great post about idols, and what has been put on my heart lately from the Lord. To sum that up in two words is...shaken foundation. God is good, all the time:-)

So back to the title of the post! My parents came to visit, and as the boys get older and older it is so fun to see them so excited for family to come out. They got in later one evening and poor Everett just couldn't stay up! Cutie pie though, did let me hold him and snuggle while we all waited. Once the g-parents got here, Logan was a non-stop chatter box. I have NEVER heard him talk so fast and so much! It was so fun to hear what he thought was important enough to tell them. Oh...and Everett is "my (Logan's) Everett" when Logan refers to Everett.

Here are a few shots of Papa and the boys. They did LOTS of wrestling and block playing. Even got on his iPad a few times.

Went out and about on base and around town. My mom wanted to get some pictures near the jets on our nearby base. I don't believe this is one that flies 200 ft above our house. (not exaggerating)

Papa and his newest Grandson (soon he won't be! YEA Jilly!)

Grandma and her little man. He LOVED to cuddle with her and just sit in her lap. He was perfectly happy and spoiled rotten with her here!

We went to the beach! It was pretty good yet warm weather while they were here and of course we had to make a trip to the beach. We decided the bay since the waves would be smaller and the boys had a blast. I even got in the water this time, and got some sun!

Here is Everett after being fed...content and playing in the shade!

Me and my three sons. I am proud to have such handsome and fun boys. I can't WAIT to see who Everett will be and how he will fit right in with the older boys. What an adventure we will have!

Quick nap

Going for a dip!

Got his floaties on...he actually ended up swimming around. I was so proud of him!

The sun brought my freckles out...oh boy! I hope my boys don't get this little gene of mine!

Logan swimming out to Dad and Austin

All Austin wanted to do...swim and be spun around. Thank God for Grandparents!

This was funny because Austin was muttering "Cheese" under his breath the whole time he was shivering.

We wore him out! Nothing sweeter than seeing his face in a deep sleep. I just want to eat him up!

Even Everett got sand on him.

Stay tuned for more! We went blackberry picking, played in a fountain, and hung out in the house!
