We spent the day doing what we like to do best - enjoying the grand kids. At the end of the day we were too pooped to even uncork a bottle of wine!
Life has been hectic for all of our families. Jim and I plop down in our easy chairs at night wondering what happened to the day. Our kids and their families are consumed by summer activities of ball, ball, and more ball! So when we were finally able to carve out an evening and a day to celebrate birthdays from April and May for James and Austin, we took it.
Time for another plane ride! Ever since we took Dakota last year, it has been our mission to get any of the grands, who have not yet experienced the blue skies from above, into the air.
|Follow the leader|
|Anna Rose, the designated photographer, and birthday boys, Austin and James|
|Austin, all confidence, in the co-pilot seat.|
|James' turn in the co-pilot seat. He said he was OK with pulling the plane up but was a little scared of tilting it back down. It might crash, you know.|
|James looked at me like I was crazy when I asked why he had on his Superman shirt...|
|After working up an appetite, we headed over to a park area next to the Katy Trail for a picnic lunch and a little play time.|
After about the 50th time, I lost track of how many times I said, "Tie your shoe James"
|Anna is still flying. and so are we, after an awesome day with three of our favorite little people.|
