One of the most fun things about being a grandparent is getting to go to some of the kids activities. Nicholas had several games rained out but we got to watch a couple of games. Alexis loved cheering him on.

These are my two most favorite boys in all the world. Blake (5) is on the left and Nicholas (6) is on the right. Note that Nicky's two front teeth are starting to appear.
Their family left today for a weeks vacation in Tennessee so I had to put their pictures in my blog because I am really missing them. Tom and I haven't seen them in a while so I look at pictures a lot!

Lexi loves her brothers more than anything. She loves that they kiss on her, play with her and to her!

Tom and I took a "daytrip" to Chicago on the South Shore. We drive part way, catch the train, walk around and window shop until we get tired and then catch a train home. We chose a perfect weather day.

We walked to Navy Pier and saw the pirates. Of course we thought of Blake!!!

What a beautiful city!

This week, Layla (on the right) and I went to "Grandparent and Me" camp in Leesburg, IN. It is held at Camp Barbee where Kendra and Brent went to church camp when they were kids. It was held from Monday noon until Wednesday noon...perfect amount of time for a beginning camper. The kids had to be from Kindergarten to 3rd grade. On the left is Sarah (granddaughter of Penny Youngman who told me about the camp). It was such fun getting to go their together and be in the cabin together.

Layla and Sarah had such a good time together.
They didn't meet each other until a few few minutes before leaving for camp. They will love getting together whenever Sarah comes from Kentucky to visit her grandparents. They were making plans to get together before they got home from camp.

Camp was a great experience. It was fun just being together!

Yesterday, Layla and Marley came to our house since Elizabeth had the day shift being with her dad. Elizabeth is trying to spend as much time with him as she possibly can. This is a very difficult time for the family.

The girls ran through the sprinkler (well...Layla did) and loved watering the flowers. Of course last night were terrible storms here but I know those flowers didn't mind the extra water.

Two of my precious girls!
