Fun at Grandma and Grandpa's
Since Chris is away for 5 weeks in Camp Lejeune, NC, Grant and I decided to come home to IN to spend some time with my family. My dad called and said that everyone was gathering at Uncle Greg and Aunt Kathy's - Kim, Wes, and Jason were going with their spouses and kids. We grew up at Uncle Greg's house on almost all holidays and I have such pleasant memories of getting together with them and playing with Kim and Wes. Unfortunately, since I went to college, I have not been nearby to get together and play anymore. It was so nice to see them, see their kids, and basically introduce them to Grant. They saw him briefly at Stefi's wedding when he was 5 weeks old last year, but that was about it. We had a great time. Grant loved the sprinkler, and the other kids enjoyed playing in the river, etc. Before going to Greg and Kathy's we had Kinsen and Jaybin at mom and dad's house while Jason and Kendra went to the Notre Dame game. It was a whirlwind of a weekend, but we had a ball. Here is a hodgepodge of pictures from the weekend. Playing bubbles at Grandma and Paw-Paw Beutler's house. Grant thought it was hilarious when Jaybin would blow, belly laughing every time! Grant is loving playing with his cousins. He's learned so much by watching them - like how to blow bubbles with a wand! Kinsen, Grant and Jaybin sitting on the back porch at Grandma and Paw-Paw Beutler's house. Grant and Jaybin playing with marbles at Great Grandma and Grandpa Beutler's house Jason and Jaybin fishing in the pond at Great-Grandma and Grandpa Beutler's house. Jaybin caught his first fish and screamed, "No, no, no, no, no!" Great-Grandpa gave Grant his own little fishing rod to play with. Grant and Jaybin hanging out on the porch at Great-Grandma and Grandpa Beutler's. Grant and Jaybin looking at a record player for the first time. They were intrigued.
