Up, up & away

Less than an hour to go until we land in Frankfurt. Boys have been great travelers!

Sam finally went to sleep around 9 (about 3 hours into the flight). Jack was about 45 minutes behind. They both stirred a good bit around midnight. We did some musical chairs & took turns holding them. Jack, our early riser, is still snoozing. Sam, my sleepyhead,is wide awake singing, "we're on a air pane!". Luckily, he's too cute for anyone to be too disturbed. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the crew is serving breakfast.

My grandfather turned 92 this week. We celebrated on Father's Day weekend in our typical and friends gathering for a fish fry.

My mom & her sweet daddy. 92 years young.

 Sam showing Aunt Lisa exactly how to enjoy a S'mores cookie.

Such a poser.

Corn stalking with the cousins.

Cousin Lila with Jack fast on her heels.

Thank goodness the battery eventually died or we were all in for it. Dangerous!

Full, it's still the best way to describe life around here these days. I wouldn't have it any other way. What a blessing to fill our days with visits to and from friends and family, fun summer activities and even our standard commitments (most of which have not disappeared this summer).

We spent the weekend over in South Carolina earlier this month. It was a real treat to catch up with friends from our three years spent in Greenwood. The boys and I had a great visit with the Todds and had the pleasure of meeting their new addition, Lydia. Well, at least I did. The boys were more interested in big brothers' Noah and Caleb's toys, sandbox and the hammock out back.

Later we ventured to my friend Kristie's, affectionately known as Cissy, to children of all ages. She's a born caregiver, doting on every little one that crosses her path. The boys were royally spoiled and of course loved the pool out back. We also took the opportunity to see the topiary display in uptown. Jack is already talking about his next trip to Cissy's.
