Happy Birthday Ron!

This past weekend was my father-in-law's birthday.
We surprised him by popping down for lunch.
Our flight got in, we did lunch, we hung out at the house for a bit, and then we caught a flight home.
This was the first time I've ever flown somewhere and not taken luggage.
Strange but cool experience.

funny Megan quote "don't take a picture of me being anti-social"

This is something like, 'I'll smile for your silly picture, but don't expect me to take my eyes off of the game'

family visits

At the end of last month Shauna got stuck in Atlanta heading back home from Salt Lake.
Kind of bummer for her, but a win for us as we got to see her for an evening.

Grandma with the Grandbabies

At the beginning of this month I was able to fly out to Utah for a little two day jaunt to go to an alumni dinner for my undergraduate program at BYU.
It was really fun to see a little bit of family and to be able to go to an adult only function {thanks for watching the kids mom!}

As it was such a quick trip I traveled really light, light enough that I didn't even pack my camera {gasp}

So, I present the two pictures I commandeered my mom's phone to take:
 Grandma and Evie

Lane {resting from the manual labor he was doing for mom's b-day present}

Then last week my Dad came to visit on a couple day stop tacked onto some business travel.
I was so excited to show him around.

We went to the Georgia Aquarium:

And hung around the house and relaxed...

...and spent time outside...

{these are taken in the part of our yard we have dubbed "the field"}

...and Daddy puttered around and fixed a few things he found needed fixed.

And after we had dropped him off at the airport Des came back to one last fun surprise from Grandpa, a tower taller than him :)
