Grains of Gratitude

On this Sunday, Father's Day, I'm grateful for Joe and the kind of father he is to our children. Thank you for all that you do for us - Happy Father's Day - we love you!


I'm also grateful for the chance to meet bloggy friends IRL! Yesterday we were able to meet Andrea and Daniel of Sgt And Mrs Hub and their 3 kiddos - Eve (3 months older than Kayla), 2-yr old Judah, and Eliza (2 months older than Lucas).

The Air Force recently moved them to Cannon AFB in NM and this weekend they were down our way to go to White Sands; so we decided to join them for some fun in the (very hot) sun.

It was over 100 degrees yesterday so we didn't enjoy White Sands as much as we usually do, but at least they can say they've been there!

Later that evening they came back to our house for a BBQ. Here are the daddies with their new(ish) babies: Lucas trying to flirt with Eliza by giving her a big smile


Let me just pinch those cheeks!


Eve and Kayla taking turns playing t-ball


Andrea and Lucas


Then we brought out the splash rocket for the kids to have fun with; and I forgot to turn my camera setting to "sport" since they were running around...so all my pictures are blurry!



Then I got the bright idea to try and take a group photo of Andrea and me with all the kids. Like that was going to happen! It was almost 9:00 and the kids were all wound up from a full day. Eve and Eliza were the only ones cooperating - even Lucas was getting cranky. Oh well...this is real life is what I said.


It was so great finally meeting you guys Andrea! I only wish you were stationed here instead of Cannon!

We all had such fun! I, too, wish we were at Holloman - I just know the kids would have a blast with each other. And of course, we would have fun chatting up a storm!

The pictures from White Sands were excellent! I just didn't have time to go through and make a post yet. But I will! Thanks again!
