My brother and sister-in-law came down the last part of June. We had a great week and got to do a few fun things with them.
They came over to our house on Saturday afternoon and the kids all played. AB and Garrett were SO excited to see each other. They’re precious together. Garrett told us all week that Annabelle and Maybree were his best friends. :)
On Sunday, we met up with the crew at the water park after church.

Even Granny came! Growing up, my grandparents did everything with us. I don’t remember a trip or event that they weren’t a part of. Even when Cooper was a baby and my Granny was able to get around well, she was always right there with us. That’s one of the hardest things about watching your grandparents age…that they just can’t do what they used to and there are so many things that Granny misses out on with us. We try to plan things she can do, though, and even though it’s hard for her to get out, I know she enjoys to do it occasionally. :) She’s usually just ready to go after about an hour! Ha. Momma & Daddy drove separate, so they could take her home when she was ready. She enjoyed getting her feet wet in the wading pool and watching all the kids splash and play.
Mom invited my Aunt & cousin, too, and Beau’s friend Ben and his family also came. There was a pile of us!
Uncle Beau took her up
As shocked as we all were by HER going down the waterslide, I nearly caused everyone to choke, when I said I was going to do it. Beau went first and then I was next. I didn’t want to get my hair wet, so he waited at the bottom to try to catch me before I went under. If this had been 20 years ago, he would have been waiting down there to push me under himself. :)

We played for a few hours and then headed home. We met back up at Granny’s to grill for supper.
When it got dark, Beau shot off fireworks that he’d brought. They were really good ones, too!
Such a fun filled day!
