A Big Project

Last week Nannie, GeeGee and Aunt Laura came into town. With them came Mondi and Pinot. Here are Ben and Mondi looking out the window together.
Garrett and GeeGee hanging out.

GeeGee and Ben, I love little boys in their jammies.
Every one was ready for bed.
GeeGee drove all the way from Florida, they left at O dark thirty (really early) and my dad was a tired boy.
Aurt Laura did Addie's nails, pink with sparkles.

I love this picture of Ben.
Getting some puppy love from Mondi and Pinot.
Garrett has learned how to get onto his stomach, but is still working on rolling back.

Ben loves Pinot and Pinot loves EVERYONE! She is the sweetest dog.
Aunt Laura putting the finishing touches on Addie's nails.
This is our backyard before.
Here is GeeGee trying to get all of the pieces out of the boxes and sorted. Can you guess what he is building?
We took the kids out so that GeeGee could work without their 'help'. They didn't know what he was working on.
Aunt Laura, Nannie and I took them to the mall for some fun.
Uncle Chris came later that day and then Daddy got home from work. They are making some progress. Nannie and I even spent a little time wrestling with the slide.
Ben got to open his first present, it was from Nana and Uncle Bim. He loved his Elmo card and his new puppy.
Later that day we went to a local bouncy house place. We met some of our friends from church and the kids all had a great time. Here is Addie with her puppy that she got from Nana and Uncle Bim, her white puppy Chloe.
Ben has so much fun when we go to bounce.

Bouncing is tough work. Everyone was ready for a juice box break.

Garrett and Carson interacted for the first time. They are both 3rd children so they are usually just along for the ride. This was the first time we let them have a 'conversation'. Garrett tried to chew on his friends' bib, it was so cute. They will be running with the big kids soon.
When we got home we checked in on GeeGee and Uncle Chris's progress.

It was so hot the guys had to take plenty of breaks and drink lots of water and gatorade.
It's coming together.
Putting the swing bar in place took everyone's help.
Uncle Chris putting some screws in place.
Nannie and Aunt Rene doing their part.
Aunt Rene using the hammer.
Nannie had to make sure everything was level.
GeeGee's battle scar.

My Mom and I started the slide, but we let Jon finish it.

Everyone was hard at work that day. Here is Aunt Laura working on the amazing cake.

More to come in the next post, the birthday party, the finished product, the amazing cake. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make this a fabulous weekend for our Kiddos.
