Summer Fun

Well, it’s been one jammed packed two weeks and now my grands are back in school.  This makes for a sad Grammy.  I’m missing them already. 

Thought I’d share some photos of the memories we made.

Grace went to swimming lessons at our YMCA and made some really neat friends along the way.

We spent a little (OK…maybe a tad bit more than a little) time at the mall when the heat was just too unbearable, which was pretty often!

And my little “sweet tooth” Karli enjoyed some sizable treats on more than a few occasions! Well, maybe I spoil her just a little, but that’s what Grammy’s are for!

We rode the golf cart all around the neighborhood with Uncle Jordan !

And, we acted like tourist (sun glasses and all) and went to visit the “old” State Capital and learned some interesting facts about the history of Louisiana.

And posed for a few (did I say a few?) pictures along the way.

We blew plenty BIG bubbles.

And like all “big” girls we got to stay up way past our bedtime, and do silly fun things.  But keep this part quiet, because we don’t our moms to find out about our secret!

We got all dressed up and went to our Aunt Megan’s wedding!

Got our faces painted at the Craft Fair…

And Cole got to be his favorite Super Hero!

 

And Kayla even lost her 2nd tooth…

While we were out shopping.  Yes, some of life’s most precious experiences can be those little things.

 

So now the summer is over, but it was memories like these that made the summer of 2011 one of the best summers we have ever had with Grammy!

I recognized the Old State Capitol immediately! My mouth flew open when I read your description and I was right! Such cute grandkids. My friend's grandchildren call her Grammy, too.

What beautiful captures of such precious memories. I absolutely love the spiderman face . . . it reminds me of when my brother was a boy and used to run around in his spiderman outfit (he's 35 now though)!

Love the make-up shot! those little girls must have been so delighted but they kept a straight face!

em said...

Oh wow. What fun, it sounds like you had a great time with them! I'm not sure which are my favorites, but I like the one where they were "big girls" and that lollipop is almost the size of her face?!

Susan, What a great summer you had with the grandkids. There are lots of priceless shots. I love the girls dressed up and your granddaughter with her cat face and Cole as a superhero especially.

Rachelle said...

Such a wonderful summer with Grammy! I swear, these beautiful littles will have such amazing memories of the time you've committed to them, the fun you've created for them, and the adventures they've had because you took the time out. Your secret is safe (and those boas are cute).

Beautiful pictures, beautiful littles.

Sarah said...

Your grandchildren are absolutely beautiful! Gorgeous images of wonderful memories!

Here praying as always!
Psalms 18:28-30 For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

Susan, you had such a beautiful summer with your grands. The memories you captured with your camera are priceless. They are all such fabulous photos but I think my favorite is Karli with the lollipop. Now that they are back in school and my boys started yesterday, we can cry together!

Branson said...

Oh my goodness there are so many fantastic photos here!!! Love the lollipop photo, and the one with the boas and the glasses is my favorite! All so cute!
