The group who came (minus Jessica and Katie who left early)
Organizing these people should've been easier, they're grown ups now!
Sam! (that's for you Grandma J!)
Luke and Sam trading stories about what their mommies are like at home.
Me and Steph (and Sam of course) after a quick dinner.
Then on our way home Sunday I realized I'm not that old. We spent the afternoon with a few of Scott's friends from high school and they graduated TWELVE years ago...who's old now! We had a great time letting the boys run around with the other kids and dinner was DELICIOUS! (Thanks Katrina and Nathan!)Scott and his new buddy Rhylah
Luke got to see the "Big Wa Wa" that is in Grandma and Grandpa's backyard. He looked like all of us grandchildren sitting on the wall with his lifejacket on. He did hook a teeny bass but couldn't quite get the hook set. It was fun to watch.
And of course Great Grandma made sure they had some ice cream before getting ready for bed.
Ben loves reading on Great Grandpa's lap. I don't think Grandpa is used to jumping around a story the way Ben turns pages.
And I love seeing Grandpa and his great grandsons playing together. There just aren't many of us who have an opportunity like that. They started an alphabet train puzzle but only got up to H before they turned their attention to the toy box on wheels (Eldor and Dorothy grandkids know which box I mean!)
We were glad to have some alone time with the Grandparents and look forward to crashing at their place again soon! (say in a couple of weeks?)

We've had a full couple of weeks. The kitchen still makes me smile everytime I walk by and see the pretty blue. Our Wednesday afternoon was rattled last week when Ben happened upon a bee's nest and was attacked by 2 or 3 dozen bees. He ended up with 10 stings on his legs and 1 on his arm. Scott and I even managed to attract a few while trying to detach those evil little things from my baby's body. He was a trooper though, the doctor told us to give him some Benadryl. We had a hang over toddler the next morning but other than that we can barely tell where he was stung. He did spend this evening yell "no" at the gnats that were flying by his face...I wouldn't blame him for hating bugs forever.
On a lighter note, Uncle Ben (not to be confused with our Ben) came to see us Saturday. It was a nice relaxing afternoon of grilling, swimming and Mario Kart. Luke loved having a grown up who would play with him, Ben just kept trying to figure out why that guy looked so familiar. Thanks for coming, Uncle Ben!

Scott sanded and puttied
and we painted. Beach White on top, Cloudy Day on the bottom. It went really fast and we're SO happy with the results. Now everyone should come over and visit!
And as you can see, Mom, we moved the white pantry over to the wall and so the area right next to the fridge (under the light) is open, the room seems 6 feet bigger...figured you be excited for us!
