Drive in fun :)

With the older kids in Mississippi, going to see "Up" with Nannie and Pawpaw we took the younger ones with us to see it at the drive it :) We all had fun, cute movie. We tried many different set ups but this was how we watched most of the movie.
Special time between Daddy and Caleb before the movie started.
Among some of the placing we tried.

And daddy and Micah.........
Look at that beautiful moon!


The "Oh boy"

Found it! Sorry it's sideways, I always forget when I'm recording that I can turn video after it's taken on my camera :(

Summer fun

Around here there's a local shopping area that hosts a concert outside in the "park" one night a week. It's nice to get out and relax listening to the music, plus my parents always go so it's a nice time with them too :)

eGrandpa Tim gives kisses we call "oh boys" as he says oh boy and shakes most of his body making it a fun game. It started when Brianna was little an all the kids have loved it :) I thought I got video but either I didn't or something happened to it :(


Vacation time

It was so nice to get to spend 3 days with some extended family at the lake/beach. We had 3 cabins between us so we got some variety too :)

This was the last leg of the trip getting there and he thought he was so big holding the DVD player :)

The boys fishing.

It was so funny, I tried to tell Darleen that he was just facinated with the stairs and the view but she was still concerned, so here she is following him up the stairs to "slide down".
.........and following him back down :)

Think he's safe?

Brianna was so cute out in the "circle" with the older girls. She's in that spot of wanting to fit in some with the older girls but still wanting to play with the younger kids too.



He worked so hard to get this raft in the water, he wanted to ride on it like the big kids.
David....see he's got a smiles :) Wish I had a copy of the picture his mom took......socks and tennis shoes on at the beach! LOL
Like father like son..........



This was our last night here, after cleaning up and dinner Brianna was out enjoying her music...
Ethan caught this Catfish and got help from his cousin Matthew reeling it in.
How precious is this.......father son time :)



First leg of the trip

This is the 3rd summer now that the older kiddos have been privileged to get to spend 2 weeks in Mississippi w/their grandparents there. They have a blast and get to do all kinds of great things with the cousins too. This year we were taking the kids all the way down and we decided to break the trip up a bit so we once again went to the zoo in Little Rock........fun times.
This was the carousel that have us soooo much trouble last time. We had asked the attendant how much it was and of course they only took tokens so David ran to the nearest location to get some. We told the attendant that, and there were plenty of spots open, but as David was running back he started it. To top that off it was the last time he (the attendent) was going to be running it before his lunch break, and we were on our way out of the park :( So this time we did this FIRST!!
This gorilla was so fascinating, he just kept starring like he was thinking so hard about us :)
They have a neat bird santuary with lorakeets where you can buy nectur to feed them.


The birds kept landing on David's shoulder and we couldn't figure out why only his?? Then we figured it out..........they were licking his sweat! LOL Guess it was close enough to nector ;)



Ethan kept trying soooo hard to get a bird on his shoulder, he finally did it :)
It is so cool to me how close the animals seem, you feel like you're in with them.
I don't know what was so good on this wall, but he just kept licking it........look how long his tongue is!

This tiger was cool too, it just kept pacing back and forth.
