Today we pretty much spent the whole day at my dad's house for a family BBQ on the new back deck that he's been building for the past year. It was a gorgeous day and perfect for sitting outside, relaxing, visiting, and eating. The deck was also perfect for the kids to play on since it is enclosed, but yet so spacious. Those present were my sister Melanie and her son Luke, my brother Brandon and his wife Alie, my sister Molly, and of course my dad and his wife Sharon.
Here's my dad with all 4 of his kids. From L-R: Melanie, Molly, Mindy, Dad, and Brandon standing in the back.
This is my dad with Sharon, holding Hannah.
Here's Hannah getting to know her Uncle Brandon. I wish I had a picture of Sarah with Uncle Brandon because I think she developed a crush on him! She totally flirted with him, followed him around, asked where he was when she couldn't find him, and only told him good-bye when we had to leave!
Here's Hannah riding her John Deere tractor.
Hannah in a rocking chair, just her size.
The practical purpose of this hat is to protect my fair-skinned baby from the sun. The obvious purpose is that it looks so darn cute on her!
My dad still had the box from his new grill and had the brilliant idea of cutting doors into it and setting it on the deck for the kids.
Big box + small kids = endless fun!
