We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

A Summer Sunday
Kai and his Opa...my Dad! It was so awesome to have my parents visit at the same time as Heather and Matt were down so Kai could get to know them better and vice versa. As you can tell, a good time was had by all.
Sunday had dawned a beautiful summer day(finally) so while dinner cooked in the oven, we all headed outside.
Aidan immediately enlisted Unkie Matt to draw with sidewalk chalk(Matt's a pretty incredible artist compared to me! No wonder he chose him for his partner!)
Jaxon wasn't so interested in that.
Kai remembered the bubbles from their last trip so he headed right into the garage and asked me to get them out for him. He was soooooo impressed and just loved trying to catch them.
So much fun!! Pure joy.
Next Matt tried to help Aidan and Jaxon get over their fear of dogs by spending some time with Tikka.Jaxon wasn't at all convinced but eventually Aidan got brave enough to hold her leash and give her commands to sit and walk.
After a delicious lunch of barbecued ribs complete with Strawberry Pie for dessert we decided a walk to the park would be the order of the day once the boys woke up from their naps. We are so blessed to have such a beautiful park right at the bottom of our street.
It was so cute to watch Kai decide that he wanted to hold Jaxon's hand.
Kai loves his cousins and really looks up to them so he was so impressed to be walking hand in hand with Jaxon. Can't you tell by the look in his eyes?
As we walked I couldn't help but think how blessed we were to be walking in the park with four generations together!!!
Kai wanted to be just like the big kids and yes, with Matt's help he really did climb all the way up that ladder!
Jaxon's turn was next. He knew how it was done because he had watched Aidan enough(who isn't on these pictures because he and Megan were at a Birthday Party for a friend)
On the way home the boys were too tired to walk....I love this pictures of fathers and their boys.....made me smile! But then a lot of things that Sunday made me smile.....we are so blessed!
