Daddy had to work, so Mommy and the kids decided to go to a movie. We saw “Paddington” and the kids loved it!
After the movie, we needed a little treat so we got everyone’s favorite…Steel City Pops!
With Brandon and Abbie in Georgia now we can visit them while we see Aunt Jen.
We decided to meet them at an indoor play place and let the kids play together.
They had one of the biggest playsets I’ve ever seen.
The dads relaxing on some surprisingly comfortable chairs.
Brandon would say he went in there to help Emerson, but we all know he just wanted to play.
It wasn’t all fun and games. Aunt Jen had some manual labor that needed to be done and Luke was just the man for the job.
Gwynn, on the other hand, just wanted to let her baby play outside.

Gwynn the physical therapist works out some kinks in Luke’s hamstrings that he got from all that hard work.
A new play place opened up not too far from us. We decided to try it out in case we needed something to do on a rainy day.
A ball pit! You never see these anymore.
Gwynn did this slide about 100 times.
They have a miniature climbing/high wire kind of thing where the kids walk on different obstacles. If they fall a net catches them. They liked wearing the helmets best of all.
A little break for building.
Luke enjoyed the slide too.
While in Tuscaloosa we decided to take a trip to the Lake one Sunday afternoon.
We took several trips on the boat since we had 6 people but not enough room for everyone. Here Grandma and Pop take the kids out on the boat.
Just the boys.
Luke taking a break and contemplating life.
Grandma and Luke wait while the others are out on the boat.
Somebody built the dock a bit too short.
“When do we start skiing?”
Waiting her turn.
Luke liked the boat… as long as it wasn’t going too fast.
Pop set us up with a spot to pick blueberries and the kids once again had a lot of fun. It’s like migrant worker fantasy camp.
Luke got pretty good about picking berries that were ripe, but he wasn’t very good at putting them in the container. Many of them landed in his mouth instead.
“Ah, this one’s no good to keep… I’ll just eat it instead”
Later that day it was time for some fun in the sun. Gwynn was ready.
Luke had a hard time climbing up the slip ‘n’ slide.
Ahh… a pool, it’s cooler in the shade.
