Friday Phone Dump

Okay, don't laugh at me (outloud) but I can not connect my phone to blogger.  They don't connect. Im also technology stupid and was telling my amazing neighbor that I wanted to get an external hard drive to save my pictures and videos to, because my phone was just about full and I can't bear to delete pictures of Grayson.  She looked at me and asked why I didnt just save them to my computer.
Shut the front door- whaaaa? You can DO that? HOW?!
After she so sweetly explained that I could use my charger cord (cause I legit thought I needed to buy a new one) I ran inside to save my pictures.
Oh technology how dumb you make me feel sometimes.
BUT- I can finally share some video and pictures with all of you loveleies. That I've only been trying to do for like a year and a half.  Yeah, Im pathetic and okay with it.

Cheeze-Its at the Home Depot...for when Daddy takes us there for hours on end!

All three K babies. Kaos, Gizmo and Grayson. Naps like this are common.
Two handsome guys.

Kaos sometimes uses Grayson as a pillow.

Mommy the couch eat me!

My bed hogs in all their glory.
I think the craziest thing is to look back at how much Grayson has changed and grown over the past year.
So now that I've figured out how to upload photos from my phone, who can tell me how to put the breaks on your baby growing up!?

Fourth of July Fun

This year we packed up and headed South to visit the in-laws for the 4th. We were hoping for good weather and fun, and we got plenty of both. We packed up and headed out at 11 PM, hoping Grayson would sleep all night. He did, but much to this Momma's dismay so did everyone else. So thanks to more calories and caffeine from a big gulp and a bag of twizzlers than I think I have consumed in the past month- we managed to pull in the driveway around 8AM.  
And since its Gigi and Pap's house, we wasted no time getting down to buisness.

While Mr. Man played in the pool the hubs continued his nap time.
He's so lucky he's cute.
Since we don't get to see Gigi and Pap except for every few months we tend to pack in as much fun as we possibly can in one day.  
A water station, tree climbing, tire swinging and cookie making. All taking place in the span of a few hours. We also played diggers in the sand, ran around the acres of land, took wagon rides, swung in the swing, and ate 2 foot long ice pops. 
Sorry to tell you buddy, this lifestyle can not be sustained when we get home. Mommy gets tired just thinking of all of these things!
Then it was fireworks time! Now, it seems crazy but this would be Grayson's first time seeing fireworks as we have been rained out every year, so we've not had the chance to go.
On the car ride there, which was all of 10 minutes, Mr. Man just couldn't hang anymore.

Baby Cousin saying GET UP!

We did get him up for the show, because we didn't want him to freak out at the loud bangs.

He liked the colors, but asked me to hold his ears to make it not so loud. Welp, that didn't last long.

Of the twenty minute show? He maybe saw 5 minutes.
The next day we hit up a place called Lucky Ladd Farms. If you are ever in the Nashville Area, you MUST take your kids there. It really is that awesome. They have a petting zoo, tractor rides, TONS of play areas, a splash pad, a bubble zone, pony rides, mining for gold...and I could keep going. We spent hours there and we could have kept going.

It was a great way to spend the day, and I so wish we had something this awesome in Pittsburgh.
After a quick nap it was time to bust out the squirt guns and wait for it to get dark so we could catch lightning bugs and roast marshmellows!


Not too sure of his first sparkler experience.

Catching lightning bugs was much more his speed.

That's one toddler eating a marshmallow the size of a coffee mug.  He ate two. I was not anticipating bedtime to go well.

Sugar high in the bathtub! Even bath time is better at Gigi's.
Our last day was turtle hunting and river exploring...every boys dream.

Such a fun weekend, but the twelve hour drive home is for the birds!
See you at the Beach, Gigi and Pap!
