A Summer of Visitors - July

After the fireworks, the L's came in for a visit - Aunt D, Uncle J, and T. Aunt D and T came out when Cocoa Puff was a wee little thing, but Uncle J had never been out...we think they all had a nice time :-)

I took 488 photos (WOW!) then I narrowed it down to 66. That still seemed like a bunch of photos. I tried to narrow it down some more this is what I ended up with - these are my favorites :-)

Cap'N Crunch, Aunt D, and Cheerio hanging out in the kiddie pool.

T and Cocoa Puff playing under the mushroom water fall!

Cheerio and T going down the slide

Cheerio loves going down the slide with T.

Cocoa Puff likes going down the slide by herself, but she loves T!


T playing at the park while waiting for dinner. Of course we took the L's to our favorite picnic spot!

This girl sure can make some funny faces!

Cheerio learned how to make faces from this Cocoa Puff! Silly girl :-)


More Peek-a-boo....

And one more Peek-a-boo

T being silly

Uncle Cap'N Crunch and T taking a walk.

Uh oh! Someone is getting in trouble for not wanting his photo taken. Uncle J does not like having his photo taken. (He wouldn't last in my family)

Notice the smile on Uncle T - oops, there isn't one....but at least he sat still for the photo with Aunt D and Cheerio.

I know this photo is blurry/fuzzy, but I really love it! Two big boys holding hands with my sweet Cheerio!

The Alamo...beautiful photo opportunities!

Ooops! Not everyone is looking, but doesn't Cheerio look cute?

Hmm? What's in here Dad?

Me getting ready to take a photo with my girls....Cap'N Crunch thought he was being funny taking one of me by myself...

And the girls! I wish I had taken my sunglasses off.

Again with the sunglasses! But I do love this family photo!

The L's with Cocoa Puff and Cheerio

The L's...I love this photo...Christmas card photo - hint, hint!

Cocoa Puff....don't ya just want to kiss her? Maybe it's just me!

I don't know what it is about photos from behind of Daddy holding hands with one of his girls, but I really love it!

I couldn't get everyone to look...but at least everyone is in the photo

Cheerio running away from her Mommy!

"I'm going to get you!"

I can't resist a beautiful scenery photo

I love this one!

They all look sweet, if only they were all looking at me.

I told Cap'N Crunch to give Uncle J a big kiss...

Uncle J didn't like that idea :-)

T giving Cheerio a ride....Mommy was a little nervous. That's why Cap'N Crunch was standing right behind them!

Make a wish

Brother and Sister with my girls!

Sweet love!


Lunch at yummy Papasitos!

Tickle time!

Bath time with Aunt D

These were the highlight of the day!

I told them to pretend they liked each other...I don't think they really have to pretend, but it did get two great smiles!

I don't know where Cocoa Puff learned how to make silly faces, do you?

Getting this photo was like pulling some teeth...T is just like his Daddy and doesn't like having his photo taken...sheesh!

Aunt D with the this one!

We are done...y'all come back now ya hear?

A Summer of Visitors - June

And now for the June edition of our summer visitors.

The June wind blew Nanny in for a long weekend. We all had a blast. Here are some highlights...

Nanny is teaching Cocoa Puff how to clean.

Of course we had a Flapjack Friday with blueberry pancakes - YUM!

I do believe this picnic in the park is now a tradition for all our guests...and it was fun!

On the way home from the picnic, Nanny got stuck in the car...the space between the carseats is not that big...we got a good laugh out of it.

It just so happened that a story time took place so we carted Nanny along...Papa went to a story time when he was here in February!

My favorite little people and my handsome husband!

Someone was a little grumpy...not sure why?

Dancing and eating a snack...does it get any better?

Mr. Julian's music is the BEST!

Nanny joins the girls and shakes her bootay!

The visit wouldn't be complete without a pedicure from Nanny :-)


Nanny and Cocoa Puff camping out in the only lasted a few minutes - it was HOT!

Nanny's and Mommy's chairs by the pool...dipping our toes and reading our books!

Isn't that a beautiful sky?

Cheerio and Cocoa Puff still having fun in the pool Gramma and Grampa gave Cocoa Puff.

One cute Cheerio in the HOT tent....hamming it up as usual!

Cocoa Puff and Cheerio making a cake with Nanny for my birthday :-)

After breakfast, Nanny and Fruit Loop (me!)

Tea Party Time....

Silly Nanny tutus don't go on your head!

Goodbye kisses at the airport....

More kisses....

Lots of tears :-( It was really hard to see Nanny go home, but we had a great time....see you soon!

Still two more months of visitors to come...stay tuned!
